I decided to paint this Anais Nin literary t- shirt because the reading of her "The Diary"
gave me very strong emotions,.
" I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous I let go."
The quote above that I have painted with this beautiful portrait, is a part of a conversation in which Anais Nin , during an interview, tries to summarize her way of approaching life.
Her writing reveals a controversial personality, a woman who is not afraid to experiment, nor even to manifest her desires, even erotic ones.
But what most fascinated me, reading Anais Nin Journal, was to find myself in Paris in the 30s, in the fervent life of those years, with her friends, young writers and important artists which Anais spent hours talking about art.
