    Easter Wishes - Egg of hope

    My best wishes and blessings to You all, dear friends and mates!

    Easter and eggs, the symbols of a new birth, of a new life.
    Like for Christmas we often dilute the fundamental joy and meanings it carried us for millennia now, the great stories behind, believing or not in them.
    Therefore we often forget how to simply and profoundly enjoy these special moments of our spiritual lives.

    I never try to be politically correct, only deeply respectful, so I made a composition of what the Easter we're celebrating next 24th is, since my artistic capabilities are far from adequate to convey all .
    A story of marvels of words and deeds. A story made with pains and death stood for love, to the benefit of who do not deserve it and still we are loved since ever and our acceptance expected all over our life.
    A story though that says that Love and our sublime Lover cannot eventually die, on the contrary, it defeated our own death too. A neverending story then ...
    How can we express all this ardent hope? Impossible. The best I could do was to gather images of this story as inspiring and painted by the greates masters, such as Caravaggio, El Greco, Rubens, but also as reminded in the Good Friday tradition, in the darkest moments we all cross, sooner or later, in the town when I was a kid and in the Eternal Town I live in now.

    May consolation, hope and intimate happyness be always with You!

    Beautiful composition...well done !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Nobody's efforts convey 'All', my dear Caesar. But you say plenty.

    I very much appreciate sharing the road with you and these other wonderful seekers through Art. We may all be seeking different things, but boiled down, I don't thing it's all that different. The unifying dynamic for me is sometimes seen in binary form, like in the most basic computer language. Its seen in Attraction and Repulsion. On and Off. 0 and 1. Black and White in its most essential form. Blame it on the Big Bang, lest it all be merely one or the other, perhaps with no need for either. From this all else is just an attempt to explain and interpret the relationship. Nice to be an artist with a full palette.

    I am a spiritual guy too, largely because of the colors there. Happy Easter to you and may all your eggs be colorful.

    Dear Caesar, Thank You so much for you Easter Collection and Greeting, bet way back in you family history you would find some blood relation to your artistic heros, something you aspire to carry on, in a way, live on and on in art, but the message truely is a political one, even inspiring Constitutions, love and peace and equality, Best Easter Wishes to you and your family!
