The Oranges in the Tunnel

"Friend, absent one, exile, I can tell you that your tunnel is still there,
mud-walled and hallowed of earth, through which you smuggled
oranges into the city––oranges!"

   --From "Letter to a City Under Siege", a poem by Carolyn Forché, written to a friend from Sarajevo

I painted this today.

Reminds me of the streaming souls in the last book of the Golden Compass trilogy.

That is the most "you" looking painting ever.

The Crow said...

This is beautiful. I see faces among the oranges, ghostly faces.

Zhoen said...

Oh, wow.

Thank you, ArtSparker, Marz, Crow, and Zhoen!
