Lemons and art

When I remember Capri I remember lemon trees. Blue blue sky, azure sea and yellow, yellow lemons on the trees. I brought some lemons home from Capri. They’ve remained in my subconsciousness in a way, just till the moment I’ve found some similar at the local market back home. As I’ve brought them home I’ve painted them the same day, just to remind me forever of all the yellows and blues of Capri………..

Hibiscus Apollo



Once upon a time lived a small boy and he liked baking little cakes.Cakes were tender and sweet, as he was, and they were round and yellow, as little suns.One morning all the cakes were missing and the boy was crying and crying, asking where all his little suns were. For he was calling his cakes little suns. And indeed, they had turned into little yellow suns and moved up to the sky.

When Apollo saw the sad boy he took his carriage to pick the little suns and bring them back to the boy.

But the boy was afraid to take them back, they were real burning suns now, how could he keep them? So Apollo turned the little yellow suns into yellow hibiscus flowers to open each day one after one, just to make the little boy happy.
