And some of these latter like to dress in red. When he saw us from behind his canvas, he approached us. Scarcely one or two little red flowers. He is thirty-one years juwn, given that he has painted for twenty-four years, and that he has painted since he was seven.

And the green of our friend. Lucuma fruit with cream. I saw only some small, fleeting greens, fatuous fires that mischievously wander the streets of this city and all cities. We fell silent, the three of us smoking. I have no more than one, one and only one. Help WWB bring you the best new writing from around the world.

If you take your paintings out of here a large part of the reds will have nothing more to do, they will lose their objective, the environment that envelops them will be different.
