Artist's Description

this very intuitive work was after the finish a great realizing. only then i saw a child and the song/words was so clear for me then.. an old memory was come up. I hope this paint with my own process can help others in your self-process.. what is repressed and want to come up…

acrylic mixed media on canvas. 11.8 × 15.7 inch

ALL my abstract works of art are mostley done intuitively; I am affected and inspired by music; no painting is done without music; music is inalienable. see my profile..

this work was result with this song:

Translation of the song:

They told me to ask not too many questions
do you know little, its the life that you answered
of what avail is it to know all?
look up and see what you can see

They told me we should listen to our father
my father didn’t tell me anything , Mama said you’re too small to understand it
i grew up to take me a seat

Who has the right, who has the right
Who has the right to do
to a child who really believes what adults say

we spend our life with greateful to say
thanks to whom? thanks to what?
to rain and the beautiful weather
for children who we lie to

they told me that people are all equal
there are several gods but only one sun
yes but the sun shines or it burns
dying of thirst or drink bubbles

thyself, I am sure they have it also told you
nice stories, no just stupidities
and now we are back on the road
with our fears and our presumptions
