It is very good, Tom...but would have been even better if the pond had been a little less deep.
Tom Wilson: You're a bathing suit aficionado, eh?
That is so beautiful, Tom! Another great presentation for something this size!!
Tom Wilson: These artists work on an amazing scale - watching them at work on videos shows what skills they have.
thanks for telling us about the scale... this is a spectacular piece of art... and you have framed it perfectly Tom...
i looked some of Natalia Rak's art online Tom... she is amazing....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter - I think that all of these "street art" people are pretty amazing.
This is really beautiful Tom! Thank you for the scale idea.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.

The water rushed, the water rose
A fisherman by the sea
Observed his line in deep repose,
Cool to his heart was he.
And as he sits and listens well,
The billow breaks and parts,
And from the waters' churning swell
A dripping woman darts.

She sang to him, she spoke to him:
"Why lure my kind away
With human wit and cunningly
To the deadly blaze of day?
If you could know how blithe and free
The fishes thrive below,
You would descend, with us to be,
And prosperous to grow.

"Do not the sun and moon take on
Refreshment in the sea?
Do not their faces billow-drawn
Loom twice as splendidly?
This sky-like depth, it calls you not,
This dank transfigured blue?
Your mirrored form enthralls you not
To seek the endless dew?

The water rushed, the water rose
And wet his naked feet;
His heart with yearning swells and grows,
As when two lovers meet.
She spoke to him, she sang to him,
His fate became quite plain:
Half drawn by her he glided in
And was not seen again.

(Goethe, The Fisherman)
Tom Wilson: Very appropriate!

In that case she gets her work easily noticed Tom, and very accomplished it is too
Tom Wilson: There are a number of videos of her at work - referring to one, she says that she was working on it for six days!
The lady looks to be enjoying her bathing but rather annoyed to discover that she is not alone Tom.
Tom Wilson: Or perhaps she is appealing to Philine's fisherman?
very gorgeous tile work
Tom Wilson: Typical of her style, judging from videos of her at work.
Great colour in this impressive work , Tom
Tom Wilson: There are a number of videos of her at work - including one that she worked on for six days!
This is very nice but I prefer the one from the past few days.
Tom Wilson: I agree, Mary - this is a bit "chocolate box" isn't it? smile
Great artwork Tom and I like your presentation of it smile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Martin.
It is very well done.
Tom Wilson: These street art artists know what they are about!

Five stories! And she is a looker.
Tom Wilson: It might even be six, Louis smile
this is just beautiful Tom!
Tom Wilson: Glad you like it, Ronky
Impressive Tom. I am guessing the feint lines indicate some quite large concrete blocks then
Tom Wilson: Yes, indeed - big concrete wall slabs.
