Haïku, painting, spooky

All things melt in grey
Sky, clouds, lake waters and spring
My feelings follow

Yesterday, my mood was grey. So I decided to finish this painting inspired by the "énervés de Jumièges", the superb shore of Geneva's lake and Mary Shelley who lived there for a while and wrote Frankenstein.

Tout fond dans le gris
Ciel, nuages, eaux du lac, printemps
Mon humeur aussi

Hier, mon humeur était grise. Alors, j'ai décidé de finir cette toile inspirée des énervés de Jumièges, de la superbe rive du lac Léman et de Mary Shelley qui vécut là quelque temps et y écrivit Frankenstein.

Girl with two pearls
The imaginary portrait of a very real sweet and charming girl. Imagination is probably the best place to be at the moment...

Haiku, grabbing joy
To know, to suffer
But tear away bits of Joy
From the fleeing days
This haiku is inspired by a verse of Maiakovsky Tear away bits of joy from the fleeing days.
But there is also something of Chaim Soutine behind this #mixedmedia #painting.
I was unsatisfied with my first try so I tore away the satisfying bits and did a new one incorporating those bits. Second time led to the same result.
Third try is not deeply satisfying but I feel I can't go forther so.

*Haiku, fading flag. Things are so sad that I wanted to make a more satisfying version of my sad american flag *

I let my cheeky Christmas monster wish you a nice week. May he put a smile on your face and help you with what you are facing.

The cover of a the toy's catalogue of a posh Parisian Grand magasin, unnerved me for reasons that I'm unable to decipher.
Here's what I did with it... December 2014

Haiku, waiting, j'attends. Fighting the Trump's nightmare the Lao Tsu's way
And I am French. I can not imagine the trial endured by Americans.
Waiting by the river
To see a body float by
Long enough is long
Assise sur la rive
J'attends que passe un cadavre
Etre patient, c'est long

I wish you a great day. Take the best, discard the worse. Social media is like Esope's tongue. Use it to open yourself not to shrink of narcissism
