where there is peace

where there is peace

Inspiration: I drew these small works, a little more than a postcard, not far from my house. It is a state of nature where summer embraces autumn: rains and puddles, small plants and overflowing water, plenty of moisture and silence. A groove for me is a backwater where the reflection is a little different from the original, where a little fantasy and fiction is possible. Illusory— something that is gone and lost, a perception of loss, a feeling that can only be sad... but maybe it's peace? I don't know, and I probably won't be able to answer.
