I’ve got something with eye’s and flowers, as you will notice when I upload more work. This one is, clearly, inspired by the Tarot card with the same name. It’s a 100% watercolour painting.

I wanted to join up with a surrealism group here, but I’m not sure if this would fit in there. I always call it surrealism, but isn’t it more somewhere on the borderline between surrealism and fantasy art?

With this I’ve introduced the 3 main areas of my artistic endeavors on to RB: still life photography, travel photography and watercolor paintings. I’m calling it a day.

I would also like to focus your attention on RosaCobos incredibly beautiful and inspirational comment on this painting:
I can see that he sees….
I can feel that he is there waiting to open the egg of his own destiny.
But The Foold has not a destiny and he knows it!
The Eye…. peeing wide and wild the intensity of Life,
hidden behing the feminity of the tender and penetrating,
but not as much as he would love..
noone takes him seriously,
excepting the wise..
for you know. that famous quote…”The Fool that persists in his foolishness…..becomes wise”…….just I ponder about it.. and how come the wise can notice this…if his own wisedom makes him disregard such a vanity?

    Oh this is just gorgeous. Is it a daisy? This would make sense seeing as the word “daisy” means “the day’s eye”. Well done.

  • I’m totally depressed now. I’ve painted a white rose and you think it’s a daisy. :(
    Oh, well, it’s hard to let it look like a rose with a big heart in the middle, but I need some room for those eyes. ;)
    So, no, the flower was based on a white rose but actually in the painting it’s not supposed to look like anything real anymore.
    Anyway, I’m having you on and I love your comment, it’s fabulous that it sparked you imagination. Cheers.
