"Fisherman's Blues"

- wax crayons on paper / lapis de cera sobre papel

40 x 30 cm - 2008

DD!!
Many thanks to my friend Gerrit, *gjoa, for suggesting it
and to Katie, ^snowmask, for featuring it!

...

"I wish I was a fisherman
tumblin' on the seas
far away from dry land
and it's bitter memories
castin' out my sweet line
with abandonment and love
no ceiling bearin' down on me
save the starry sky above
with light in my head
with you in my arms..."

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-22
Fisherman's Blues offers a good, healthy measure of delicious surreality, smoothly integrating highly recognisable, day-to-day elements in a setting perhaps identifiable as pop-art. Please enjoy this piece and many more by ~Garelito. ( Suggested by gjoa and Featured by snowmask )

I really like this. I say, you can't take a man from his passions and, evidently, his is fishing. This is darling ~_~

Now that I come to look at this again, I wonder if they actually make ties like that. That would be an exceptional outfit.
