Images of the Father. Not chosen, assembled or arranged by Him. Without His suggestions or decisions.
With doubts.
The sun is shining as we hang canvases in the gallery, and a piece of paper falls off the board. Is it a sign or a naive wish?
It’s quiet on this floor.
Memories of an indulgent smile.

From the very beginning, the image should announce its final appearance.

He carried landscapes inside him and rarely went out to see them. He did not have to. The earth enchanted by rebuses is present in the landscapes painted around the house. In the garden, near a few stones, a bunch of sticks leaning on a tree trunk.

The last image and the town in it. First, most important.

And every time you see cranes along the road, think that he once caught one for students. From wire, paper, the desire to see in nature.
There are so many of them in the fields today.
Maybe not tell Him about it…
