Playing with patterns

That is: "Le mani di Ca' Pretor" ("Ca' Pretor's Hands). 

  I drew these hands last summer in Ca' Pretor, a rustic and very much loved chalet on the Italian Alps. They are the hands of the participants at a drawing workshop that was held there. It was such a pleasure to observe these busy hands surrounded by my beloved mountains, and to hold with me their gentle gestures up till now - and beyond. I would like to have this pattern on a magic dress that can tickle, touch, caress, comfort and gently pinch throughout the perils, standstills and excitements of creative times.
