Private Project

Youth garden

Spring is jubilant and youngsters in beauty, feet in the bread and books to the heads. The painting is moving, between rustling of the tree and trembling of the hand. In the frantic race of life, death is not the last arrival and the gay knowledge gives the cemetery even festive tunes.
