Amazing two and three-story high murals!
 
Congratulations to the Tucson Arts Brigade, to the Tohono O'odham Nation, to the city of Tucson, and most of all, to our nine brilliant muralista artists! Thank you for your artistic vision and hard work!!
The new murals that have gone up in the last month are visual celebrations of the city's colorful personality.

Excellent artist. Compelling images. Funny and thought-provoking. Gary Aagaard
 
Hot off the digital press - a review of the Gary Aagaard solo exhibition at Merci Gallery in Tucson.  Funny, acerbic, and sometimes surrealistic - you don't want to miss this artist's work. Read the review here:

I just finished reading the article in the newsletter and then read this post! I love illustrations and as +Barbara Byron  pointed out I had a similar reaction that they reminded me a bit of New Yorker illustrations although paintings. That he had a career with NYT explains that.  Also liked "Dark Side of the Hill" of Hillary. Thanks for including the story in this issue.

(As an aside chuckled at your "unsubscribe" note.)

I introduce to you +Ruben Moreno who is a Tucson artist - one of the very best in my opinion. He works in  the Mexican surrealist tradition. He doesn't post often but when he does, his posts are worth noting.
 
A(MAZE)ING MAPS and LEGENDS
Every
map contains stories much deeper than the colors and symbols found in
the legend at the corner of the page. From the simple to the complex,
from the visual to the imaginative, from the historical to the

This may be my all-time favorite song. In English, the title is Waters of March. In Portuguese, Aguas de Março. The composer and lyricist is Brazilian Tom Jobim (Antonio Carlos Jobim, 1927-1994) who was a musical genius. Here he is singing with Elis Regina. Below are the lyrics which are a poetic and deeply meaningful statement about the wild, crazy, beautiful and rich lives we all live.

Waters of March

A stick a stone, it's the end of the road,
it's the rest of the stump, it's a little alone
it's a sliver of glass, it is life, it's the sun,
it is night, it is death, it's a trap, it's a gun.
the oak when it blooms, a fox in the brush,
the knot in the wood, the song of the thrush.
the wood of the wind, a cliff, a fall,
a scratch, a lump, it is nothing at all.
it's the wind blowing free. it's the end of a slope.
it's a beam, it's a void, it's a hunch, it's a hope.
and the riverbank talks of the water of March.
it's the end of the strain, it's the joy in your heart.
the foot, the ground, the flesh, the bone,
the beat of the road, a slingshot stone.
a fish, a flash, a silvery glow,
a fight, a bet, the range of the bow.
the bed of the well, the end of the line,
the dismay in the face, it's a loss, it's a find.
a spear, a spike, a point, a nail,
a drip, a drop, the end of the tale.
a truckload of bricks in the soft morning light,
the shot of a gun, in the dead of the night.
a mile, a must, a thrust, a bump.
it's a girl, it's a rhyme, it's the cold, it's the mumps.
the plan of the house, the body in bed,
the car that got stuck, it's the mud, it's the mud.
a float, a drift, a flight, a wing,
a hawk, a quail, the promise of spring.
and the riverbanks talks of the waters of march.
it's the promise of life, it's the joy in your heart,
a snake, a stick, it is john, it is joe,
it's a thorn in your hand, and a cut on your toe.
a point, a grain, a bee, a bite,
a blink, a buzzard, the sudden stroke of night.
a pin, a needle, a sting, a pain,
a snail, a riddle, a weep, a stain.
a pass in the mountains. a horse, a mule,
in the distance the shelves rode three shadows of blue.
and the riverbanks talks of the waters of march.
it's the promise of life in your heart, in your heart.
a stick, a stone, the end of the load,
the rest of the stump, a lonesome road.
a sliver of glass, a life, the sun,
a night, a death, the end of the run
and the riverbank talks of the waters of march.
it's the end of all strain, it's the joy in your heart.

+C.J. Shane and they shouldn't both english and portuguese lyrics be the same, but what would be important is for them to have the overall meaning, that they finally had, that he finally gave them ! And it was a therapy to him, it is my therapy sometimes (when in that sentimental mood). :) Thank you so much for the info based on the interpretation of the song :) I do appreciate you, your words n work bunches :) May you have a beautiful rest of the day :)
