A musical poem painted by Caetano Veloso. An icon of modern Brazilian music. HERE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik0U1PIMxTk)

Color Train

Slopes of mountains
All colored in orange
The grass is rose
Honey from these eyes light
Honey of uneven color
The gold not so green
Over the hills
The silver of the train
Moon and star
Turquoise ring
Atoms are all dancing its dawn
The fog shimmers
Pomegranate colored children
Come into the wagon
Olive from the gray cloud
Being left
Behind the morning
And the blue paper
Wrapping the apple
Houses so green and rose
Passing by looking at us
The two sides
Of the window
And that one so blue
Almost non existent
A blue there is not
A blue which is pure memory
From somewhere
Your black hair
Explicit object
Brown lips
Or to be exact
Ašai colored lips
And here color train
Wise projects
To reach the station
And the sky so blue
Celestial blue

Your paintings are always such Festivals of Color!

So hot is in this scene that one can see the colors evaporating with the naked eyes... and one can feel the breeze of an emotional uplift... as usually... invitation into the paradise... ;):)

Coops and Skylar, thank you.
This image is a tribute to the music of Caetano Veloso. A brilliant song, a true festival of colors, simple, human, pure poetry, exciting ... maybe the music does not have the same impact in the English language, but is worth seeing and listening.:)

Beautifully done, oriane! Caetano was recently in concert at La Rural, but unfortunately for me in Buenos Aires. A long way from here. :(

Gorgeous Oriane, love how you've created the movement in this piece, the colour is wild and your trademark impasto just brilliant :):)

This "Color Train" is effervescent poetry in motion ... a multi paletted
montage of energetic transport moving forward with the bright eyed
determination of a joyous traveler who seeks only the pleasure of the
journey and the discoveries yet to be revealed. My bags are packed,
I have my ticket in hand and am about to board. Beautifully painted! :)

What a feast for the eyes dear Oriane you are a master of colour:):)

This is a new and more free divisionistic painting I'd say. Extremely beautiful. The song text has a quite different age/ style, but it's perfectly depicted in Your artpiece. Bravo!
