Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Diptych oil on canvas
2 paintings 60x80 cm (23,6 x 31,5 inches)
Total dimension 120 cm x 160 cm (47 x 63 inches)


This painting was inspired by reading poems by Federico Garcia Lorca (Libro de Poemas). It is an extraordinary Spanish poet who does not need presentation. In particular I was attracted by the poetry La Balada del agua del mar (The Ballad Seawater).
I Imagined the poet watching from a room window overlooking the sea, listen to the voice of the waves and create these wonderful verses.
I tried to give a feeling of waiting, despite the movement of the waves, a suspension that creates the perfect size for creating a work of art. Transcribing the opening lines of the poem.

THE POEM

El mar
sonríe a lo lejos.
Dientes de espuma,
labios de cielo.

¿Qué vendes, oh joven turbia
con los senos al aire?

Vendo, señor, el agua
de los mares.

¿Qué llevas, oh negro joven,
mezclado con tu sangre?

Llevo, señor, el agua
de los mares.

Esas lágrimas salobres
¿de dónde vienen, madre?

Lloro, señor, el agua
de los mares.

Corazón, y esta amargura
seria, ¿de dónde nace?

¡Amarga mucho el agua
de los mares!

El mar
sonríe a lo lejos.
Dientes de espuma,
labios de cielo.

The sea
Smiles from far off
Teeth of foam
Lips of sky.

What are you selling, muddy young woman?
With your breasts exposed?

Sir, I sell the water
Of the seas.

What are you carrying, dark youth
Mixed with your blood?

Sir, I carry the water
Of the seas.

These saline tears,
Whence do they come, Mother?

Sir, I weap the water
Of the seas.

Dear one; and this earnest
Bitterness – of what is it born?

Very bitter is the water
Of the seas.

The sea
Smiles from far off
Teeth of foam
Lips of sky.
