Regalame un sol, installation - pigments, acrylic, tempera, Japanese orange ink on tracing paper, on a studio working table

Tuning, tuning, the solar plexus.  Rip, rip the tracing paper. Opens…a bit the chest; with expectation...attention. The yellow pigment, cadmium yellow, too yellow,  a bit of orange, Japanese ink. Too much. More, azo yellow. The tempera size. Water, water. Mixing. The brush splashing yellow, running freely;  painting…painting… painting…One ray of sun at a time. Strip by strip. Close to the solar plexus; and the sun comes, here it comes…Piles of amarillo fire. Tangles of yellow stripes. Tuning, tuning…Opening. Tuning, tuning…Breathing in, holding; breathing out…sun.
