© 2008 Armando Salas --- Here is my version. (Hey, Pam: meanwhile I ate the last eight bonbons :-)))------ It's well known that kids are usually more handsome than their father; this time it also happened this way and as I promised, I'll take my suitcase and run away to hide myself in Patagonia, totally ashamed :-))) All of you are TERRIFIC artists and this one is the last time I start a challenge:-) I never liked so much to be the loser :-) LOL!:-) -------------- About my version: my peixeiras and the fisher haven't eyes nor mouths; it's the way I remember them from my childhood: inexpressive people having hard work, people fighting to survive, to know the next day. After our Civil War, Spanish people knew famine and all sort of privations. People hadn't joy. I was one of the children with no toys or only one per year. Cheap toys indeed. Perhaps this circumstance made possible my mind could dream, invent, travel to wonderful imaginary worlds. My creativity is the consequence of the NOTHING I had. THINGS, I mean, because I always found huge love in my family and friends.----- Still looking for more artists already involved, I want to thank you all for your support. This challenge is an intense experience and I learnt to "see" my art through "alien" eyes. It enriched me and I had -still having- lots of fun. Thank you again. All of you are from out of this world:-)----------------"Peixeiras". Colored pencils on paper. 59 X 42 cm.
