Painting

I have started working on the motifs picked out from the text, putting them together in paintings that are not totally intended to be part of the final work. The first one can now be seen under Pictures.

English

Finally I finished the translation of Bjørn's lovely text. I apologize in advance for things that seem weird or wrong. Some of them are due to the quality of my english ... the rest to Bjørns neckwringing way of writing. Which I appreciate very much smiley.gif

Say it with flowers

Even if my project is based on Bjørn's text which actually does not include the Ophelia of Shakespeare, I have searched the internet for Ophelia and her flowers.
From a friend I had heard that they among other things were symbols of embryo abortion.
I found lots of interesting stuff.
To this site I bring the flower monologue of Ophelia's and an article by Bob Loughran, dealing with Shakespeare's use of flower symbolics based on the flowers of Ophelia.

It doesn't start here

... as it actually started long ago. Already the first time I heard the sound image, pictures raced my mind and I suppose that's about the idea with a sound image. But these images have been truly persistent, wriggling around in there and jumping out on me when least expected. Then you have to DO something.
I've got plans not to be revealed here, not yet. As for now there's the text and the ideas. In a bit some painting will be added. And then we shall see...
