This is a kind of (odalisque-like) Selfportrait in the Umbracle.
The "Umbracle" it's a beautiful place in La Ciutadella (my favourite park ever, in Barcelona). A garden in the shade with exotic plants; it was built in XIX Century.
I used to find it closed, always... Then one morning I found it was open and it was a ...magical moment.
I was alone and I could enjoy that silence and beauty for the first time.
Well, I wasn't alone at all... There was a flower "sitting" alone in a bench. It was kind of weird because there weren't flowers of that kind anywhere else.
It looked like if she
was waiting for someone... so delicate and beautiful.

I used a reference picture for the bench -I took it by myself that day
