tête-à-tête



tête-à-tête,  - a private conversation between two people. - from late 17C French, literally 'head to head'
Yesterday (Sunday) I surveyed a grander more metaphysical landscape (worship) (another tête-à-tête!)
Today I review this sketch.
Earlier I listened to the appalling Syrian updates over breakfast and I wonder about the purpose, the wisdom of painting at all.
This little sketch examines accord, a harmony of persons, a harmony of colour.
The tiled floor and the four uprights reflect the order of the underlying axonometric scheme: order is peace.
It is full of light.
Happiness is a fugitive sensation.
Appreciated most when in the shadows,
 . . . . . .like blue that is more blue when next to orange.
