Roberto and his cloud

This is Roberto. Roberto is named for Roberto Tjon A Meeuw, the amazing Surinamese artist who creates art from found objects. I met Roberto on a film I designed in Curacao and loved his work. When I left, he gifted me this gorgeous sculpture. 

Roberto (the sculpture not the artist) occupies a space on my studio wall with a clear view of my desk. This is where I do most of my procrastinating. I think Roberto looks a little sad so I hung a cloud from the Magis Me Too collection above him. I often imagine that the only way I can stop the cloud from raining on him is by getting on with my work.
