Once upon a time, a Dragon and a Princess whose eyes color included all the colors of the world except the red.
When we asked people who crossed this Princess about the color of her eyes, none of them had noticed the nuances and this combination of warm and cold colors. May be only the Dragon was able to see it !
Continuation of the story...
As in all fairy tales, they fell in love and from this love were born two children: Little Forest (小林) and Little Tiger (小虎).
Little Tiger inherited the main color of the eyes of his mother, green. But not just any green, a green studded with black stars.
Little Forest had green eyes, slightly bluish than her brother.
But this green could not be an ordinary green. She inherited the gray of that was part of the color palette of her mother. It seemed light brush strokes forming the contour of dragon's scales on all its eyes! On the left one, another color was present, clear and warm brown.
The Dragon had a passion: painting.
The Princess became his model on two conditions: never paint her face nor his jade stone she always wore around her neck.
So, she became his model for many paintings and inks. Naturally, the Dragon would have preferred to put the true face of his paintings rather than painting women's portraits coming from his imagination.
The legend tells about the painting intittled "End of day", the Dragon had to change three times the facial features as they looked like too much his model !
Then, the Dragon began to ink using Sumie Art. His source of inspiration was there, near him and he knew each curve of her. It even seems that he succeeded one day to ink the Princess with a single stroke of a brush.
Then came up with the idea of entering their love with inks entitled "Woman and Dragon". It was his way to tell her how much he loved her.
In 2012, he said to have told her Princess "This year is my year" in reference to the Chinese year of the Dragon. "Nothing will stop me!"
But this year, the Grim Reaper took off the love of his life.
Some people say that two months after the tragedy, the Dragon would have realized a 35 meters long ink that told the story of his life.
The fables like the legends have some truth. It is even said that he would have painted live.
A Princess and Dragon story could not start without being lived passionately. And it came it had to happen.
The Chinese year of the Dragon was a sad year. It ended the day of his Princess birthday, February 9, 2013.
He paid tribute to her with a final ink entitled "Year of the Dragon D-Day-2", dated February 7, 2013.
It was his last "Woman and Dragon". History does not relate if he painted others thereafter.
Sometimes life has surprises in store, but a love story is immortal, we expect to see inks shortly. Love is an indestructible force !
