Title: The strength – This is the octopus number 7 of the State of mind series.

Year of making: 2021

Size: 50 cm x 70 cm

Acrylic on paper.

The idea

The octopus series is about deep thoughts and feelings that exist in me. 

I represent in this work those situations in which we must have the strength to be silent.


This piece was inspired by The Strength tarot card.

The Strength tarot card shows a woman holds a fully grown lion and gently caresses its forehead and jaws. 


To find the idea, brainstorm a list of words. Then I sketch as many ideas as possible and I pick one.

One of the things I was interested in the gentle strength of the maid over the lion. 

In the same way that with strength I control many emotions. It is not healthy of course, but it is what it is.

Then I define the final sketch in Procreate and test some colors.

The painting process

And finally, I decide the surface I wanna work on, the size, and the colors. Ready to start painting.
