Sappho's girls

The poem below, written by Sappho has inspired me to make this ball point pen drawing

This is my song of maidens dear to me.

Eranna, a slight girl I counted thee,
When first I looked upon thy form and face,
Slim as a reed, and all devoid of grace.
But stately stature, grace and beauty came
Unto thee with the years — O, dost not shame
For this, Eranna, that thy pride hath grown
Therewith? Alas for thee ! I have not known
One beauty ever of more scornful mien,
As though thou wert of all earth's daughters queen!
Mnasidica is comelier, perchance,
Than my Gyrinna — ah, but sweetly rings
Gyrinna's matchless voice ! In rapture-trance
I listen, listen, while Gyrinna sings.
Hero of Gyara is fleet of foot
As fawns, and as light-footed in the dance,
The dance taught by the measures of my lute.
Ever-impassioned Gorgo! — is it strange
That I grow weary of the change on change
Of thine adored ones? — of thy rhapsodies
O'er each new girlfriend, while the old love dies?
Joy to thee, daughter of a princely race,
For thy last dear one! Lie in her embrace —
Till shines a new star on thy raptured eyes!
Fonder of maids thou art, I trow, than she.
The ghost who nightly steal young girls, to be
In Hades of her woeful company.
This is my fair girl-garden: sweet they grow —
Rose, violet, asphodel and lily's snow;
And which the sweetest is, I do not know;
For rosy arms and starry eyes are there.
Honey-sweet voices and cheeks passing fair.
And these shall men, I ween, remember long;
For these shall bloom for ever in my song.

Iris, the goddess of the rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ

This is my painting of Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ

A love story with princess and warrior woman

"Be mine" she was saying to me while I
I've made these pencil drawings on saturday, imagining I am in her strong arms and I feel safe and loved. She is a warrior woman and I am her princess. I've always wanted to be hers and she wants me so much that she would do anything to be with me.
how much I wish this was real.

Why am I single on Valentines day

Tomorrow it's Valentines day and watching this painting I wish I was one of the women in the painting. There are so many moments when I feel so lonely and all I can do is to paint ๐ŸŽจ about the feelings I need to express the feelings that burn me deep inside like a silent fire. I've made more than 4000 drawings and paintings of the love I am not allowed to have.
Maybe you wander why am I so lonely
It's be cause I live in an intolerant society
It's be cause the bigotry all around me doesn't allow me to live a real life.
It's be cause they don't allow me to be myself, love myself, making me feel guilty for what I am and for my feelings all the time.

Aphrodite and the rose Sappho has written a poem about

The poem "The rose" by Sappho has inspired me to make this painting.

If Zeus chose us a King of the flowers in his mirth,

He would call to the rose and would royally crown it,

For the rose, ho, the rose! is the grace of the earth,

Is the light of the plants that are growing upon it.

For the rose, ho, the rose! is the eye of the flowers,

Is the blush of the meadows that feel themselves fair,--

Is the lightning of beauty, that strikes through the bowers

On pale lovers who sit in the glow unaware.

Ho, the rose breathes of love! ho, the rose, lifts the cup

To the red lips of Cypris10 invoked for a guest!

Ho, the rose, having curled its sweet leaves for the world,

Takes delight in the motion its petals keep up,

As they laugh to the Wind as it laughs from the west.

The portrait of a magician queen

When I've made this I just wanted to paint a woman wearing a tiara made of violets and an ellegant purple dress but after finishing it I realised my woman looks like a magician or a queen. She seems to be a mature dominant woman with some interest in magic, spirituality and the unknown.

The archetypal tree

One night I had a dream about this tree that seems to hold the sun with it's branches. The tree is an archetypal symbol of the ego while the sun is representing consciousness deep inside our minds. The tree is the mind while the sun is the soul.

Forbidden rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ

I want to paint a rainbow but my colors are chained in a restrictive black and white world where there is no place for art and no place for anything that goes beyond the norm. When will I see the rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ of hope? This drawing is about the censorship of art in Romania. There are only a few galleries in Bucharest and more than 7000 painters who have no place where they can display their creations. The galleries that still exist in Bucharest don't accept all art. One example is my painting "Flames of love" rejected by some galleries for it's lesbian content.
