Oil painting on canvas - 59x33" ( 150x85 cm)

It was a chilly night of december. I had veiling my look the glimpse of clumsy grace of the one who just gave one month of his wage for an art print _ heartbeats don't have a price. And there, I beheld, her fluttering one meter above ground, with all her youth and her witty words. But I remind not much of what happened that night in Paris, only that Pas d'Ange was wrong.
In the train back I was relishing the new space in my chest.
Later on I dreamt of truth,
of purity and wind,
and I wanted to paint reds.

This is a painting about inspiration: how a bit of a person's substance, despite the mischievousness of the _hopefully harmless and unnoticed_ puncturing act, nourishes an artist's creations through a chain of transformations. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter occurring in the brain among other places, and which has been identified, when lacking, as responsible for some depressive states. The name was borrowed from *kmye-chan who much kindly posed for the main character.

Some close-ups can be seen here and here

I feel like I kind of understand this. I see that one of the people in the chain of 'emotions' is holding something like a brush. So its like, your emotions, as part of you, inspire and create you. You change along with your emotions, because emotions change your sense of self. A beautiful photo. <3
