Gouzac I; pencil on paper, 20 x 20 cms
Vermeer copy with aunt and sister
Gouzac II; pencil on paper, 20 x 20 cms
From water and bread in the City to tea and milk with aunt Anna and her sister, their children and Gouzac the watchdog. Auntie and I both like Vermeer. The dog is magnificent and a good workmate. We all had a good time.

NIPSON ANOMEMATA ME MONAN OPSIN; ‘wash your sins, not your face’… sound of water dripping from the Virgin’s well. A circle of light upon the coarse sand under the oil lamp. The caretaker singing low and gently in Greek. On the wall an icon representing the Annunciation, many times caressed by gazes, prayers, fingertips – deep into the very wood.
