Street art

Color is all. When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music; everything is vibration.

Marc Chagall

I have always wanted my colors to sing.

Paul Delvaux

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.

Wassily Kandinsky

Color! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams.

Paul Gauguin

If art is to have a special train, the critic must keep some seats reserved on it.

Oscar Wilde

Trains are wonderful…. To travel by train is to see nature and human beings, towns and churches, and rivers, in fact, to see life.

Agatha Christie

Chegou a altura de fazer uma longa pausa. Sou obrigada a cuidar de mim. Do corpo e da alma. Os uiltimos meses puseram-me à prova e preciso de recuperar de tantas noites mal dormidas. Vou estar bem rodeada da família e dos amigos que são família também. Regressarei ao blog assim que for possível. Deixei alguns artigos agendados. Até breve! Vou ter saudades vossas! Fiquem bem!

It’s time to take care of myself. My body is screaming STOP and I shall listen to my inner voice too. For my own sake. I won’t be here for a while. I will miss you, trust me! But I have no choice! I scheduled some articles. And every Sunday is street art day. Some things will never change. See you soon! Take care!

Ya es hora de cuidarme. Necesito tiempo. Mi cuerpo está agotado y mi mente también. Los últimos meses han sido muy duros por motivos personales. Escribir es una fuente de alegría y me encanta leer vuestras publicaciones. Sin embargo, necesito descansar. Os he preparado algunos artículos. Os echaré de menos! Hasta pronto!

Maintenant, je n’ai plus le choix. Il est temps que je m’en occupe de moi. Je serai absente quelque temps. La santé passe avant tout. J’ai programmé quelques articles. À bientôt! Vous allez me manquer! Prenez soin de vous!

Ho bisogno di fare una pausa. Godere gli amici e la famiglia. E soprattutto abbi cura della mia salute. Gli ultimi mesi sono stati difficili e ho accumulato una stanchezza estrema. Io tornerò presto. Ho programmato alcuni articoli. Mi mancherai! Baci a tutti!

Gate after gate seemed to close with gentle finality behind me. Innumerable beadles were fitting innumerable keys into well-oiled locks; the treasure-house was being made secure for another night.

Virginia Woolf

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.

Maya Angelou

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.

Jane Austen

Nature is a haunted house–but Art–is a house that tries to be haunted.

Emily Dickinson

No other planet in the solar system is a suitable home for human beings; it’s this world or nothing. That’s a very powerful perception.

Carl Sagan

The home should be the treasure chest of living.

Le Corbusier

Street art


Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

Leonardo da Vinci

To draw you must close your eyes and sing.

You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.

A work of art which isn’t based on feeling isn’t art at all.

Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.

You can’t use up creativity. The more the you use, the more you have.

Maya Angelou



Plage de bonheur
Bonheur en plage
Cage de rêves
Rêves en cage
Héritage de peur
Peur en héritage
Rage d’amour
Amour en rage
Naufrage de sentiments
Sentiments en naufrage
Partage de mer
Mer en partage
Adage en douceur
Douceur en adage
Décrochage d’étoiles
Étoiles en décrochage
Paysage de folie
Folie en paysage
Décollage d’âme
Âme en décollage
Apprentissage de vie
Vie en apprentissage.

On transforme sa main en la mettant dans une autre.

Paul Eluard

L’avenir, fantôme aux mains vides, qui promet tout et qui n’a rien.

Jardim florido


Um aroma intenso
Uma breve carícia
Um sorriso tímido
Uma mão permissiva
Um gesto desajeitado
Uma saudade levada pelo vento
Um retrato roubado
Um suspiro
Um alento
O sol num dia de Primavera
As flores do meu jardim
Estou aqui à tua espera
Será que vais chegar por fim?
Ah, quem me dera!

Find for your pencils
A way to mark your memory
Of tired empty faces
Faces tired of wishes
Empty of dreams.
