New Drawings

Late last night I wrote a post in Turkish version. Another perfect day today in Gran Canaria, 25Cº :)) My latest "Ars Longa Vita Brevis" (Art is long, Life is Short) project is coming out well. Only, I've been broken few of my coloured pencil leads so I made my search in the net, the experts say it's normal when you use mechanical ones, they suggest an electrical or battery operated ones. Of course right away I ordered an electrical pencil sharpener. The good news, I realized last night the comments were open to only for registered members, I fixed that now, it's open to anyone who reads this post.

What about to talk on Latin Proverbs a little bit? ; Below you are viewing one of my new works called "Etiam quod esse videris" (Be what you seem to be or seem like who you are). In my opinion, this phrase to be told a person who needs a quick shake and get alerted. We are surrounded by with these kinds of people in our everyday life. Most of the times we choose to ignore them or we play the stupid boy. The ego in human soul is huge, there are so many classism, racism etc... I expressed my feelings in this painting that I wouldn't
be able to say it loud in any circumstances. Anyway, I had chosen some proverbs, just simply to tell something as well, for example "Omnia causa fiunt" (Everything has a reason) as you have seen it on my previews post.

Well, another one "Homo homini lupus" (Man is a wolf to man). Absolutely it's true, no need to be a philosopher to understand.(See below). For the last one "Cave cave deus videt" (Beware beware god sees you) I am sending a message to liars and unfair people in a way saying "don't think that you are the only smart one and everybody else is stupid."
