1. Contrasts

October was a beautiful month.  I went to visit my family in Spain and on my return we travelled around the South Island with my brother Roberto.  My head is full of colours, clouds, landscapes… and unforgetable moments.  It´s hard to choose between the thousands of photos that Roberto and Danny took during the trip, [...]

4. León

During the past few weeks I showed you bits of these pieces.  Well… here they are in full.  The top four ones are missing the last one of the series that I hope to finish this weekend.  They are called “meditations”, and they are small collage/dioramas.  They will be on their way to Spain soon, [...]

In november this year I’ll be taking part in a group exhibition in Leon (Spain) in which I will be showing a collection of small pieces called “meditations”.  It’s been great to experiment with new materials and techniques.  I will have the photographs of the complete works soon, but in the meantime here is another [...]

7. Color samples

I was trying to create a collage with these dulux color samples but I am not happy with the result.  Do these colors they remind you of anything? Estaba intentando crear un collage con estas pruebas de color de Dulux, pero no estoy contenta con el resultado.  ¿Te recuerdan a algo estos colores?

9. More experimenting

I’m working on a series of small collage/paintings called “Meditations”.  This is a segment of the second one.  I like it how it changes depending on the light. Estoy trabajando en una series de pequeños cuadros/collage llamados “Meditaciones”.  Este es un segmento del segundo. Me gusta como cambia dependiendo de la luz.

13. Gracias, gracias, gracias

Gracias, gracias, gracias Quiero agradecer a quien corresponda Y a nosotros dos el premio a la audacia Por entrar al mar por la parte más honda Tiempo al tiempo al tiempo Cada huella irá encontrando su arena Cada beso deteniendo un momento Y cada canción matando una pena…

16. Sunny weekend

Here are some more photos of the Bill Wikes Reserve, Motueka’s Beach reserve and market and a beautiful and very friendly black fantail that followed us on our way to finding a geochache yesterday.  I was so excited about it that didn’t pay much attention to photographing it, plus it´s a shame that I had [...]

17. Adventure Express

I thank Cushla for ordering this diorama.  She made me go back to my drawing table and motivated me to start illustrating again.  It symbolises her partner’s retirement and freedom to pursue new adventures.  They will both be travelling to South America at the end of the month, I wish them very good luck! Le [...]

18. New life in Nelson

La última vez que escribía en este blog tan abandonado no teníamos casa y todavía no sabíamos si podríamos o no ir a recoger nuestras pertenencias que habían quedado “atrapadas” en la casa de Christchurch.  El tiempo ha pasado y todo eso va quedando en la distancia.  Al final logramos entrar en la casa, en [...]

19. A short excursion

Last week we drove to Arthur’s Pass, a small alpine village nestled amongst the Southern Alps and only a couple of hours drive from Christchurch. We walked to see the impressive Devils Punchbowl Falls and on the way we saw lots of small birds and the kea, a large parrot that lives in that area. [...]

22. our city in ruins

Martes, 22 de Febrero, 12:51 de la tarde.  Muchas vidas cambiaron en este minuto cuando un terremoto atacó a mi ciudad, Christchurch, en Nueva Zelanda.

23. Time to reflect

Each of the rain drops has a tale to tell about the sorrows of people about the hardships living things go through about the arrival of sparrows. Yamamura Bocho (20th century) (Cada gota de lluvia tiene una historia que contar, sobre las penas de la gente, sobre las dificultades que pasan los seres vivos, sobre [...]
