Hot Wind on Canvas


A painting I did a couple of months ago was chosen for an exhibition. It would be nice to have another one he said when we spoke on the phone. So I need a hot wind to pair it with Tramontana. I come up with Levante and Diablo. I like Levante but the problem is it is warm, not hot. I need a hot wind, worthy of medium and dark cadmium reds. 

Later in the day M and I are on the bypass stuck in relatively heavy traffic driving at 50 km/h. There is a huge black BMW with Russian licence plates in front of us. What do you think, I say, Levante or Diablo. Diablo, M says without thinking. The Russian takes the same exit we do. The setting sun resembles a coast of red sand and fiery orange water moving sluggishly.

Tramontana, acrylic on canvas / akril na platnu, 70 × 70 cm

Slika, ki sem jo pred nekaj meseci naslikala, je bila izbrana za razstavo. Dobro bi bilo imeti še eno, reče, ko se pogovarjava po telefonu. Dobro, si mislim, potem potrebujem vroč veter, nasprotje Tramontane. Ni jih prav veliko. V ožji izbor uvrstim Levante in Diablo. Všeč mi je Levante, vendar je problem v tem, da je topel, jaz pa rabim vroč veter, vreden srednje in temne kadmijeve rdeče. 

Kasneje se voziva po obvoznici, promet je relativno gost, premikamo se 50 kilometrov na uro. Pred nama vozi ogromen BMW z ruskimi registrskimi tablicami. Kaj meniš, rečem, Levante ali Diablo. Diablo, reče M, ne da bi razmišljal. Rus izbere isti izvoz na obvoznici kot midva. Zahajajoče sonce je podobno obali z rdečim peskom in lenobno valujočo ognjeno oranžno vodo.
