Can't say if he would like it, he was a true lark, after all, and I'm the very owl...
"Look for the soul", he wrote me once...
The kind of soul you find when you need a soul to draw...
My soul looks for the sun, can't get enough of light, but quenches its thirst in the dark... at night—nocturnal is my soul...
And when the end was near, but death forgot about him for a day, he spoke about some colours, disappointed because still I had not used the oils he'd handed down to me...
Well he forgot to mention it, because I did not know... And then he died, in March, no time for colours anymore.
He had a little studio in the old house of the geckos, I found the oils there only a couple of weeks ago...
And I used his oils to paint... and here it is: nocturnal soul... in green and black and cobalt violet...
I can't be sure, but maybe he would like it, even if he was a true lark, after all and, as the canvas shows... I am the very owl...
Valentina, la quiete ingannevole | the deceptive quiet no. 1. Oil on canvas, 18 x 24.

What I was talking about...
Being different... and fires and frames...
Well this is totally different and almost the same...
It's the deceptive quiet... #francescobosa
Valentina, la quiete ingannevole | the deceptive quiet no. 2. Oil on canvas, 30 x 40.

Many faces are static, sometimes beautiful and photogenic... and every shot is simple... and perfect... and it adds nothing new. [...] Others seem to be displaying a continuously changing nature beneath the surface... there's always some different detail whenever you observe them...
It's a hidden fire in a deceptive quiet...
Moving like hexagrams in a book of changes, holding back stills, moving up frames, it keeps its mystery untouched and alive...
And I sense that it could bring representation to a different level of depth... Just have to find a way to reach it and teach it to my hand...
