They say once you get attracted to something unless it loses color, you stay attached to it. Loses color may imply many things, but I am meaning the touch, the happiness, the joy of feeling it for the first time. Once you tightly grip that emotion of yours, you will not fall out of love. I feel in love with Alvaro Castagnets’ paintings for a very long time now. To me, the colors of his paintings dance around creating a vibrant atmosphere imitating the natural. I do not specifically like one aspect of his but many. Among the many first paintings of mine published here, one named "Boat-Workshop" was an imitation of Alvaro Castagnet too. And, here this one too is an imitation of one of his paintings. Mine isn't as good as his and I also changed the mood but the joy I feel every time I look at his work binds me to it.
