The Hand project XV: Radio Free Europe


Thereza's hands

El trabajo que realizan tanto Thereza como Pia me alegra el día. El aire liviano de sus obras, el optimismo, la delicadeza, el uso del color o el ojo curioso, la forma de contar sus historias y muchas cosas más hacen que las sienta cerca pese a vivir en muy diferentes lugares. Tras dibujar sus manos pensé: "¡me estoy divirtiendo tanto!"
Tal y como le dije a alguien ayer: tampoco es tan difícil ser amable con la gente que es amable contigo. Y resulta, además, muy gratificante...

Thereza's and Pia's work makes my day. Their light air, the optimism, the delicacy, the perfect use of color or the curious eye, the way they tell their own stories and a lot more things make me feel them close, even if we live in such different places. After drawing their hands I thought: "I'm having so much fun!"
As I commented yesterday to someone: It isn't hard to be nice to people that is nice to you. Plus, it happens to be so gratifying...

Quite true, quite true... treating people as you yourself would like to be treated makes sense.

More great hands for me to see. Brilliant!

Happy weekend to you, g
