12-GREEN


green, as in green house.
Chloe means green in ancient greek. at least that what SHE says. All I know is ...
In Greek mythology Dêmêtêr /də'miː.tɚ/ (Greek: Δημήτηρ, "mother-earth" or perhaps "distribution-mother", perhaps from the noun of the Indo-European mother-earth *dheghom *mater) is the goddess of grain and agriculture, the pure nourisher of youth and the green earth, the health-giving cycle of life and death, and preserver of marriage and the sacred law. She is invoked as the "bringer of seasons" in the Homeric hymn, a subtle sign that she was worshiped long before the Olympians arrived. The Homeric Hymn to Demeter has been dated to sometime around the Seventh Century BC.[1] She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries that also predated the Olympian pantheon.

thank you wikipedia.

of course, I could have done a big green bike. I had a sort of FLASH watching motorcycle races on telly when I was around 10. I remember thinking "wow, this bike is SO BIG and SO GREEN!". I owned 3 kawasaki's, two of them were repainted, none of them ever was green.
spring seems here for good and for the whole 3 days week-end. that can only mean RIDE, RIDE, cold wine and outside table at cafe. new life, an ode to the "bringer of season", "the health-giving cycle of life and death"

aha.. the irony, looks like a very colourfull friday.
have a good week-end, looks like my hang over finally dissolved, time to go out.

  2. Oh, I like how painterly this came out! I don't know too much about the effects you can make with the Wacom, but this is just neat! Oh and your writing is very stream-of-conscious and fun to read.

  4. Chloé
    Étymologie : En grec, signifie l'herbe naissante, la verdure nouvelle.
    Très tôt dans l'Antiquité, Chloé a servi de surnom à la grande Déméter, déesse de la terre cultivée, qui faisait l'objet de nombreux rites religieux.
