This group has been active for a long time and has already made some remarkable assertions which render life simpler from the practical point of view. For example, I move a pot of green color five centimeters to the right, I push in the thumbtack beside the comb and if Mr. A (another adherent like me) at this moment puts his volume about bee-keeping beside a pattern for cutting out vests, I am sure to meet on the sidewalk of the avenida Madero a woman who intrigues me and whose origin and address I never could have known...

    Gracias Zoe.

  6. I'm speechless... she's so beautiful! I definitely LOVE her eyes. You've found the perfect shades to bring her to new life. Bravo my dearest! You always go the extra mile! :-D

  7. This is an amazing painting! Your blog is so cool, too. I felt instant affection and kinship -- how could I not, you being inspired by Borges and all. Here's to many more!

  8. Hello zoe,

    Really amazed at how you used the colors in the work effectively and beautifully!! The white fig tree looks so sacred and her red rose dress is very attractive!! I like the dream-like color of the background very much which reminds me of the world of the unconscious. Thank you for sharing!!
