Painting/ Poem Doris



loose hair

soft  gaze,


fine porcelain,

you name the Oak

it grows, slowly and fully


pelo  suelto

mirada suave,


porcelana fina,

nombras el Roble

crece, lento y pleno

painting/ poem © Doris Pacheco


Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings

the tune without the words and never stops at all.

Esa cosa con plumas, la esperanza, que en el alma se posa
y canta la canción, pero sin letra, y nunca se detiene,

Emily Dickinson

Been thinking of the desert…where feathers fall, angels tread & gypsies roam…

He estado pensando en el desierto … donde caen las plumas, dejan huellas los ángeles y vagan los gitanos …

I took a little holiday vacation with my cousin, I went to three cities in my state, South Padre Island, San Antonio and Austin, a total of 12 days, it was super cold but that did not stop us from traveling and having fun…

What I am looking for… is an immobile movement, something which would be the equivalent of what is called the eloquence of silence


Lo que estoy buscando… Es un movimiento inmóvil, algo que sería el equivalente de lo que se llama la elocuencia del silencio

The Flight of the Dragonfly in Front of the Sun, 1968 by Joan Miro

Throughout the time in which I am working on a

canvas I can feel how I am beginning to love it, with that love which is born of slow comprehension.

Al cabo de un tiempo de estar trabajando en un lienzo,

puedo sentir cómo me estoy empezando a enamorar, con el amor que nace de la comprensión lenta.

The Birth of Day, 1968 by Joan Miro

Figures and Dog in front of Sun, 1949 by Joan Miro

I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.”

“Trato de aplicar colores como palabras que forman poemas, como notas que forman música.”

Joan Miró, ‘A Star Caresses the Breast of a Negress (Painting Poem)’ 1938

The works must

be conceived with fire

in the soul but

executed with

clinical coolness.

Las obras deben ser

concebidas con fuego

en el alma,

pero ejecutadas

con frialdad clínica
