As it is ever, I dream to make paintings on canvas from my drawings. The same story is with this charcoal drawing “Tea Drinkers”. I finished it today. I was sitting in the mall, where I draw or paint my drawings. At that moment I had only a sheet of paper and I wanted to do there a street of the city with gray-black houses and bright colorful trees with fruits, which grow on the pavement of that street. When I thought about places there which houses will stand, my hand mechanically had drawn a profile of a woman at the right side of the sheet. It looked too lonely and I decided to give her a cap of hot tea, and draw a hand, which hold the tea cap. But it appeared that the hand could not belong to the person because of its position. Then I added the face of the woman at the left. That woman resembles me face of one lady, which I knew ages ago. When I looked at more attentively at the first face at the right, the face resembled more man’s profile, not woman’s. So I made it even more male’s face and gave him a hand with which he gently touches woman’s cheek. As I draw that hand completely from my mind, and without any model, I began to hesitate, did I draw it well or not. When two teenage girls stopped near me to look at the drawing, and I asked one of them to try to turn a hand in a way as it is shown at the drawing. It was not an easy task, but to my surprise it appeared, that the drawn hand was made in a right way. After that I thought that I need to connect these two persons with Indian boomerang. And I did this. Then I remembered that Indians had tomahawks, not boomerangs. And Australian Bushmen had no tomahawks but boomerangs. But it already was too late to make change that Indian boomerang to Australian one, and I left it as it is – the Indian one. Then it logically appeared to create there a glass teapot, which I put on the boomerang. The hieroglyphs, which descend downwards from teapot, have some meaning. The first one should mean the name of one teenagers – Juste, the second one – the squirrel playing with winged dinosaur or the name of the second teenager girl – Emma, the third one mean four-legged camel-bird, the next – an Egyptian sun, which is deformed by melting air, which rises from the hot sand of African dunes, the next after next is a happy rabbit under which we can found a happy carrot, and the last hieroglyph means embracing of two people. As I was not sure that I could paint well the liquid in the pot, I placed there a fish, which aim was to hide future shortcomings of the future painting. If you will look at the fish attentively, you will notice that the fish smiles. It is so because it feels well and had no reasons for sorrows. Which the condition of mind and body I wish to you all who read these rows of words. If you are not sleepy yet, then I wish you a night with good sleep! Good night for all of you! :)
