Beautiful. Is that what you discovered at the back of Oscar's and Patricia's garden?

delu said...

I see it too: A soldier with a laser gun, Riabovitchev.

Precioso, precioso.

He is a detective on a secret mission. The red thread is to help him find his way back through the labyrinth of flowers. He has bird on his head because he is thinking of Channing Pollock, the famous conjuror who appeared in JUDEX and an episode of THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES.

I would love if you continue the story.
The before or the after.

Will there be a minotaur?

Oscar Grillo said...

What a beautiful remembrance! Thank you!

Patricia said...

Actually, the comment above was mine but I wrote it from Oscar's laptop. Of course he was logged in...never mind, thanks again!

Hello Crooki,
Perhaps you would like to audition for the part?

Hello Patricia,
Thanks again......best wishes to you, la familia Grillo and the fabulously wealthy Oscar...I trust he's on the mend.

Anda! entiendes castellano?
genial el hombrecillo pisaflores!

limbolo said...

Luis,
unfortunately I understand very little Spanish. But with the assistance of the web Free Translation service and several Spanish-speaking friends I try to do what I can.

Bill,
I am fascinated by Dutch and Spanish still life painting from the so-called 'Golden Age'. What you see here is - freely - even arbitralily - based on a painting by JACOB Van AEYLST.
The encounter between these two utterly different European cultures produced a strange and moving art, balancing between life and death; joy and grief for the passing of moments in time.

This one is GLORIOUS!! The complexity that emerges from such simple shapes & brushstrokes makes my brain tingle.
