Art Love: Watercolor by Blue

La Figlia Che Piange(The Weeping Girl)

impressionistic painting girl

Stand on the highest pavement of the stair –
Lean on a garden urn –
Weave, weave the sunlight in your hair –
Clasp your flowers to you with a pained suprise –
Fling them to the ground and turn
With a fugitive resentment in your eyes:
But weave, weave the sunlight in your hair.

So I would have had him leave,
So I would have had her stand and grieve,
So he would have left
As the soul leaves the body torn and bruised,
As the mind deserts the body it has used.
I should find
Some way incomparably light and deft,
Some way we both should understand,
Simple and faithless as a smile and a shake of the hand.

She turned away, but with the autumn weather
Compelled my imagination many days,
Many days and many hours:
Her hair over her arms and her arms full of flowers.
And I wonder how they should have been together!
I should have lost a gesture and a pose.
Sometimes these cogitations still amaze
The troubled midnight, and the noon’s repose.

— T. S. Eliot

Illustration Love: Kenny Park

My discovery of the day is illustrator Kenny Park, who is signed with Shannon Associates who generally have pretty great taste in artists. There’s something so immediately compelling about his work, a touch of broody surrealism and a style of world-building that is simple but just strange enough to draw you in. His latest series is based on Hermes. kennyparkillustration
