Under the sea

Mermaids live under the sea in small cottages surrounded by cute fish and lovely divers.

Las sirenas viven bajo el mar en casitas de campo, rodeadas de peces y guapos submarinistas.

Willowing Tam

From Tamara Laporte, or Willowing (http://willowing.ning.com), I have not only learned what to do with a pencil and paint, I have also learned a lot about kindness and compassion. She is a wonderful person, artist and (online) teacher that makes you feel as a friend and I feel very fortunate I met her and all the fantastic art community she has created.

The last months I have been living with pain and, even though I have decided I will continue smiling and feeling fortunate with my life, there are moments in which I get a bit sad for not being even able to do a normal walk still… Yesterday I had one of these moments and then, I saw one of Tam’s drawings and I felt it expressed my feelings at the moment, so I took my paper and my pencils and draw a similar girl… In the process I forgot my sadness and also a bit of the pain. So here it is, my version of a Willowing girl.

De Tamara Laporte, or Willowing (http://willowing.ning.com) he aprendido todo lo que sé hacer con un pincel. También he aprendido un poco más acerca de el poder de la amabilidad y la compasión… Tam me gusta como persona, como artista y como profesora virtual.

Durante estos meses de dolor, y aunque he decidido mantener la sonrisa y no olvidar todas las personas cosas buenas que me rodean, hay momentos en que me desespera no poder dar ni un paseillo por la calle. Ayer, en uno de esos momentos vi un dibujo de Tam que representaba mis sentimientos y me puse a dibujar algo similar… durante el proceso se me olvidó mi penilla y fue también una gran ayuda para olvidarme un poco del dolor…

Three M’s for coffee

I have already commented the fact that I started doing art very much inspired by Blond Amsterdam, I love their style and their colors, I love how their simple drawings are so funnily effective. Today is the birthday of one of my best friends and to celebrate it I made this Blond Amsterdam style’s drawing representing our trio of funny Spanish friends learning to fit in the Dutch culture.

Ya he hablado sobre la gran inspiración que las artistas Blond Amsterdam fueron para iniciarme en esto de la pintura. Me encanta su estilo simple y colorido tan lleno de buen humor. Hoy es el cumpleaños de una de mis mejores amigas y he dibujado este dibujo en el estilo Blond Amsterdam para dedicarselo a mi amiga (http://mafaldillas.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/mari-nuestra-mari/).

The weddings

This week I had a lot of fun with the Spanish blog http://mafaldillas.wordpress.com/. The three of us have decided to tell or own version of my two weddings, yes two! The reason was that, being from different countries, we decided to celebrate our union in both of them. And following a tradition, my weddings made two friends to fall in love and end up marrying.

Esta semana me lo he pasado muy bien con el blog español http://mafaldillas.wordpress.com/ porque lo hemos dedicado a mis dos bodas. Os recomiendo que lo leais.

Thinking of you

A dear friend of mine lived in Japan for a few years and, as a consequence, she is even more sick worried about all is happening at the moment there. She left there a lot of good friends and spent Friday trying to contact with all of them… I also have been trying to find a way to tell her that I am here for her and, since words didn’t seem enough, I started preparing a little gift for her.

This painting is inspired by the wonderful art of Adriana Almanza and a beautiful picture my friend has with the traditional Japanese costume.

Una amiga mia mía vivió varios años en Japón y logicamente está aún más preocupada por lo que todo lo que está ocurriendo allí. Dejó muchos amigos allí y se pasó todo el viernes intentando contactar con ellos… Yo también he estado intentando encontrar la manera de decirle que estoy aquí para ayudarla en lo que pueda y, como las palabras no me parecían suficiente, decidí hacerle un pequeño regalo.

Este dibujo está inspirado por el maravilloso arte de Adriana Almanza y una preciosa foto en que mi amiga está con el traje tradicional japonés.
