Caricatures and sad thoughts


I’ll try to amuse you with 2 of my “caricatures” (one representing a quebec liberated woman with her progeny and the other my daughter’s tomcat, Pitzu) since I’m bloody sad… My middle son broke his leg on the ice, a few days ago and, cherry on the cake, it is possible I loose my teaching job next year. So, that’s about all I can muster today…

  1. I’m so sorry about your son’s leg, and about the possible loss of your teaching position. When will you know?

    Maybe this means you’ll have to relocate to the US and share that brilliance here!

  2. I love the cat one and especially the little cat with the bird,…The top one is interesting…. what is the significance of “quebec liberated woman” ? Sorry to hear about your job and your son’s leg. Here’s to hoping your luck turns around……

  3. Danu,

    Caricaturile nu sunt pasiunea mea dar, strafundurile recursiv maloase şi reflectarea lor in ceea ce Adrian ar numi- viata ca o consecinta a culturii coca cola, da. Ai reusit prin alaturarea acestor doua imagini sa atingi maretia din capriciile lui Goya. Cred ca ar merita sa transformi ceea ce ai postat intr-o compozitie in ulei. Somnul ratiunii inca doarme si rostul artei este sa se alature religiei pentru a-l curma. Nu intamplator am scris religie cu R mare. Evident ca nu m-am referit la o anume religie si nici la institutiile bisericesti care au transformat templul sufletului intr-un bazar. In rest, imi pare rau sa aud ca perspectivele nu sunt tocmai luminoase, dar trag nadejde ca lucrurile
    se vor aranja de la sine. Revenind la desen. FELICITARI. Este minunata aceasta compozitie: sub luna cu un cur luminos- vulgaritatea comparatiei este intentionata, fiintele nu sunt altceva decat niste entitati purtatoare de celulita,
    nacscand pui vii, pe care cosmarul lor ii ucide asemenea matei de casa, materializarea visului in stare de veghe a matei lilith.
    Titlul viitorului tablou ar trebui sa fie: CE MULT NU TE-AM IUBIT, pet-ul meu drag.

    PS: Sper ca totul va fi bine si cu fiul tau mijlociu.

  4. Thanks, Moonbeam! My son is a bit better but the formalities to make him have unemployment’s benefits are awful… In 2 days I’ve already consumed 1 tank of gas (his car)…
    concerning my job, nothing is certain yet, I still have a season to prove myself a bit (if my boss didn’t already make up his mind…) but fat chances, I’m afraid, to move to US… I’ll rather put my bet on winning the lottey, in which case I’ll be your Mecena… Promise me you’ll do the same if it happens to you…

  5. “Femme liberee” or, in En. Liberated woman is a result of the so called Tranquil Revolution here, in Quebec, when women (and at some extent, men) modernized the old Quebec structure, and especially liberated themselves from the tirany of the Catholic Church, which was, before 1960, kind of all-powerful, mingling in all aspects of (francophone) quebequers… The liberation had very positive results, mainly, but also some less positive: women started smoking in enourmous proportion (still do, to some extent), divorce and all its consequances was an epidemy and resulted in great numbers of “single parents” especially moms… In a few words, that’s a liberated woman… thanks for reading me…

  6. Oh, Carmen, eu si Goya! mersi din suflet (nu glumesci!) Uneori sunt uimit cate lucruri si interpretari voi poetzii (tu, Adrian, etc.) gasitzi in modestele mele desene si picturi (dar si Vincent era modest, la inceput, nu? isi intitula picturile “studii”/ etudes) Multzumesc pentru aprecieri si sper ca si tu esti – sau vei fi – bine. Teodor, e mai bine, desi se pare ca are de tras mult mai mult decat credeam initzial: 3-6 luni in loc de 1-2… matza Lilith! wow! imi place…

  7. Danu, nu ai de ce sa-mi multumesti. Tu stii ca eu sunt sincera. Cat despre Adrian, hai sa-ti spun ce a mai facut. A luat o pictura de-a ta, i-a adaugat niste versuri si gata scrisorica de dor pe care o trimite on line la toate muzele- printre care ma numar si IO, evidement:). Este drept ca mentioneaza cine este autorul imaginii, dar pun pariu ca imbratisarile, fie ele si numai virtuale, nu le imparte cu tine.
    c

  8. Ba da, le imparte… Si desi copyrightul pt reproducere ar mai putea fi al meu, lucrarea propriu-zisa e a lui… Si mi-a trimis si mie o scrisorica, asa ca vezi…

  9. You bet I will! I hope things get better soon.

  10. Hang in there, Danu!

  11. Hi Danu!
    So deeply sorry to hear what happent to you and your son in our absence: one really can’t leave you alone one second🙂 !
    I hope with all my heart that you will keep your art teaching job, keep us informed please!
    But I cannot help to notice: your chances to move to the Mediterranean are becoming better…

  12. I also hope the things will be better soon, Moonbeam! For Teodor (my son), for Tom and for all of us here…

  13. I will do that, swallows, thanks!

  14. Yes, Miki, I missed you and Kev… Concerning the job, I hope also… as for the Mediteraneean, well, who know? Life is full of surprises! some MUST be pleasant, I suppose?!

  15. We missed you too, Danu.
    And yes, life is full of surprises, even of pleasant ones! One must just stay open to the “hasard” and to all the possibilities it gives us. And one must be quick then! Not always easy…
    But well, to start with, let us hope that you can go on with your job. We are with you.

  16. No immediate danger, miki! Just that, probably, they won’t give me another one year contract next year…but, let’s hope…

    I will “stay open to “hasard”/chance… I do it for many years now… I’ll be as quick as Steven Segal!
    Shy, very shy, the spring shows its nose even here…Already a reason to hope…

    DaNu_le, amice, te apropii de 20.000 de “leghe” pe net; performanta, in sine, e notabila, dar cu atit mai semnificativ e numarul celor pe care i-ai bucurat cu (unele dintre) imaginile postate aici…

  18. Da, ovidiu, e ceva, eh? Desi multzi din cei care au venit pe site au cautat fie cai (sper ca nu verzi pe peretzi – desi am si dintr-aceia!) sau samurai… Dar sper ca au fost si din cei de care zici… mai vorbim…
