“The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

Dear followers, a few days ago, while talking with Sara P. Lorenzo, a good friend and also an excellent psychologist, she recommended me this classic of literature. I have not yet read it, but she gave me the splendid suggestion to publish this post that links reading with painting and drawing. I’m hopeful you will like it.

    • Sara, it’s a true pride to me your great contribution with your splendid ideas. I know you write so fine. About drawing it happens something similar as when we learned swimming or bicycling: we’ll never forget these kind of practise. With drawing there is an advantage, sometimes we could think that the important are the skills or movements of a pencil, and the real important is the way we observe and realize. An excellent drawing or sketch has more of subtraction than addition. I hope some day you take a pencil again, and remember it’s not the hand but your beholding and gazing what it really counts. Thanks a million for everything. Best wishes, dearest follower.💜

    • Hello Pixie, it’s a wonderful news that you read this work. The friend that recommended the reading told about the contrast among two characters. I love this subject about some famous “tandems”. Thanks a lot for your friendly comment. I’m sorry of my poor english. Have a nice afternoon, dear. See you soon💫💜🎩💨
