Metroheads: Relaxed Attention and Blankness

Ok, back to Business. Thursday's Metroheads for you only!


The young girl with the baseball-cap - She listens attentively to her girlfriend who is talking her head off, probably narrating a fascinating love drama, on a level with Romeo and Juliet...Or is it the story about Captaine Ahab's revenge on Moby Dick?


The woman with the blankness on her face - Can I make up a story about what she may be thinking or is there too much blankness here? Perhaps she is meditating, thinking of empty space as opposite to crowded metro. Or does she visualize a field with thousand red poppies?

they live their lives
telling their unique stories
everyday and on every path
each warm, worthy and wise
.
they're with me
for but a short while
but their souls
flow in my heart
like another Nile..
(a poem by Human Being)

Number two does look like she is saying "Om" to herself. Love the hat on number one. And Human Being's poem. So personal, so perfect for you and your Metroheads. Ditto the poem she left on Cris's blog. Human Being, you are marvelous.

Oh Andrea, I love your Metroheads! And to day you have embellished your already wonderful paintings/studies of people with a poem by Human Being...now how fabulous is that? Human Being is really fabulous about spreading around those lovely poems in the blog world! Thanks Human...

I love the wonderful colors of the "Girl in the Baseball Cap" and the look on her face is really fantastic. I can just picture her sitting there consumed by what her friend is telling her.

And the woman with blankness on her face is truly wonderful, as well. I think I like the idea of the field of red poppies...maybe she is meditating in the field!

Thank you so much Andrea! I really love your insights to these people you observe each day...they are wonderful!

These are wonderful. I too love the one with the base ball hat.
Such detail for such a short time sketching and I love HB's Peom and the one on my blog. Two such wonderful creative people on one blog. :)

Wow so nice together with HB's poem!
Love the lady with the hat!

human being said...

oh geez i'm blushed
thanks my dearest friends

Andrea's art is so provocative, whenever i visit her bolg, my soul starts dancing and my words try to sing the same song she sings with her lines and paints...
and i'm not a good singer, you know...
i'm just lip singing!
:D

Thanks for turning me on to Human Being, I'm enjoying checking his blog out and his writings are fabulous.
And as for you my dear, always, always superior images, concepts, love and sharing with your ideas and writings as well.

Andrea, I love your sketches so much because you put so much soul and personality in them! I love the young one because she seems full of energy and youth. I felt that the lady with the blank look may just be taking a moment or two to relax and she works very hard.

I love all your drawings, the people you see daily come alive, make your ride easier I think, interesting, all this wondering and capturing...of lives.
