Watercolor based on the Tuscan landscape I saw near Florence Italy over the
summer. I painted the original to give to my Grandma Rose right before
she went into Hospice to brighten up her hospital room. She lost her ability to speak from the disease that killed her, but every time a new arriving family member came into her hospital room, she would point to my painting and then to me, and one of the last things she spelled out for me with her letter board was that she loved the painting and that she loved me. I miss her a lot. The name Tuscan
Rose is in honor of her memory. (Prints are available on my Redbubble and Society6)
Stunning Architectural Illustrations Hidden Behind Empty Silhouettes of Other Structures
Scotland-based artist Minty Sainsbury detail-oriented work reveals stunning structures hidden behind the silhouettes of other buildings. The meticulous depiction of each brick, window, decorative surface deliver a breath-taking photorealistic and classical account found in architectural art. By dividing the buildings’ full structure in unlikely places, Sainsbury brings an abstract element to a traditional sketch.
To give yourself over to another body
That’s all you want really
To be owned and consumed by another
To swim inside the skin of your lover
Not to have to breathe, not to have to think
But you can’t live on love, and salt water’s no drink.
You’re dying of thirst so we feast on each other
The seas are still a violent mother
The blood run down your pores like water
Each wave a lamb led to the slaughter
And like children that she just can’t teach, You break, and break, and break, And break ourselves upon the beach.
