I would like to end this five year project entitled "Art Work of the Month", which started in January of 2008 and will now finish with this December 2012 offering, with something of beauty: here is a simple pencil drawing of a beautiful woman. Andrea Barnova is one of my ice skating coaches and my Czech "language controller" for my upcoming Janacek operas at La Fenice in Venice (Italy) and for the Opera National du Rhin / Opera d'Europe in Strasbourg / Colmar / Mulhouse (France). I find it more important to point the finger in the direction of things uplifting, rather than to dwell on misery, unhappiness and horror. The simplifying translation of a three-dimensional reality into a drawing or painting allows me to physically highlight the essence of the depicted model. I am always in search of beauty.
