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.

Street art

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Pablo Picasso

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art

Desolate and lone
All night long on the lake
Where fog trails and mist creeps,
The whistle of a boat
Calls and cries unendingly,
Like some lost child
In tears and trouble
Hunting the harbor’s breast
And the harbor’s eyes.

Carl Sandburg

Colour your life!

Put some colours in your life
Make it sharp and bright!
A gorgeous yellow sky
Don’t be shy!
A cheerful blue sunrise
It’s time to be unwise!
Orange grass everywhere
We’ll get there!
A green deep sea
Just wait and see!
A red mystic hill
Just make it real!
And a violet sunset

Portugal…here we go!

Don’t we all need love?
The answer is easy.

I have just bought the flight for Summer vacation. Me and the children will be staying in Portugal three whole weeks. Just because family comes first. Lisboa, Tomar, Faro, Tavira. I am sure we will share tears and good laughter. Two special birthdays will be celebrated; my brother and nephew have the same name (Diogo) and were both born in July.

I’m listening to George Ezra and I just feel like crying, laughing and dancing in the middle at the kitchen. I am happy and sad at the same time. Mãe won’t be there and we will miss her…so much! Saudades will never go away. Nevertheless, avó is always in our hearts.

Usually, I only have two weeks during Summer, but this year there will be three in a row! We only live once and time flies, so let’s enjoy every second. I’ll be counting down the days until the 4th of July. Meanwhile… carpe diem!

Doing the right thing

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

Mark Twain

Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

Mark Twain

Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain.

Live lighter

Let it slide
Let it burn
Let it hide
Let it turn
Let it snail
Let it run
Let it fail
Let it shine
Let it fly away
Let it rhyme
Let it stray
Let it wonder
Let it last
Let it plunder
Let it crash
Let it go
Let it crush
Let it grow
Let it burst
Let it fall
Let it vanish
Let it call
Let it banish
Let it cry
Let it crawl
Let it die
Let it be all.

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.

Georgia O’Keeffe

Life is art. Art is life. I never separate it.
