« Ramón, the garden keeper »
Sketches of Spain, pencil on paper, 14.8×21 cm

I was watching the garden keeper responsible for the upkeep of a large, private garden near the centre of Salou town in Spain. But as a couple of weeks passed by, one thing was bothering me. The garden keeper couldn’t stop cutting grass. It inspired me to this plot and I decided to call the garden keeper Ramon ,and to draw him, my way.
In his sleepless nights, Ramón sees visions of the garden so green and perfect, the grass cut to perfection by his hands. He can’t stop imagining how great it would be if he was already at work. Every Sunday morning, when everyone else is still sleeping, Ramón starts cutting grass.

This drawing is about perfectionism, first as a good thing and as it can help us to achieve success. Yet, it can also prevent us from taking risks and make us feel guilty of not doing enough.
Ultimately, Ramon lives fearing failure, and that fear prevents him from trying new things.
