Dwarf on the road … Gnomo de viaje — Zwerg unterwegs

This dwarf is prepared for a long walk, got it’s coffee pot with him and moves quickly along. Another moving painting that’s doing several movements while you are turning a handle. It’s done with acrylics on wood (70 x 100 cm), the mechanical parts are metal, wire, cardboard, wood and string.
Este gnomo se ha preparado para un viaje largo,lleva su pequeña cafetera, y mueve sus piernas cortas rápidamente.. Es otro cuadro con movimiento, y también en este se mueven varias cosas, mientras uno mueve una manivela. Se trata de acrílico sobre madera (70 x 100 cm), y las partes de la mecánica consisten de madera, cartón, alambres, y cuerda.
Dieser Zwerg hat sich auf einen längeren Marsch eingestellt, er hat seine Kaffeekanne dabei und bewegt schnell seine kurzen Beinchen. Auch dieses Bild mit Mechanik zeigt mehre Bewegungen auf einmal, während man einem Hebel dreht. Die Malweise ist Acryl auf Holz (70 x 100 cm), und die Mechanik besteht aus Holz, Metall, Karton und Schnur.


Balance is everything … equilibrio lo es todo … Gleichgewicht ist alles

Today, we let the ballerina dance: while turning her umbrella with elegance, she keeps balance on a moving ball  – and even lifts her leg high up and down! Don’t try that at home, it might end in an accident 😉
Hoy hacemos moverse a la bailarina,va girando su paraguas, mientras mantiene su equilibrio encima del balón que se mueve con elegancia, e incluso subiendo una pierna! No lo intentéis en casa, que puede terminar en un accidente 😉
Heute lassen wir die Ballerina tanzen! Sie dreht elegant ihr Schirmchen während sie graziös auf einer Kugel balanciert – und dazu noch ein Bein hebt…. Bitte nicht einfach nachmachen, es könnte in einem Unfall enden 😉


Primaballerina … la bailarina … die Primaballerina

Another painting that moves! Can you imagine what the prima ballerina does? It’s an acrylic painting on wood of 70 x 10 cm and it’s got a mechanism made from wood, string, cardboard and wire. See the whole painting and some details here…
Otro cuadro que se mueve! ¿Ya te puedes imagina lo que hace la bailarina una vez puesta en movimiento? La técnica de este cuadro es acrílico sobre madera, y los mecanismos están hechos de madera, alambres, cartón duro e hilo de pescar. aquí unas fotos del cuadro entero y también en detalle.
Noch ein bewegliches Bild! Kannst Du Dir schon vorstellen, was die Tänzerin macht, wenn sie in Bewegung gesetzt wird? Die Technik ist auch hier Acryl auf Holz und die Mechanismen sind aus Holz, Draht, Schnur und festem Karton. Hier gibt’s ein paar Photos, sowohl des ganzen Bildes, als auch einzelner Details.

Bailarina, el cuadro que se mueve
the dancer and her friends … la bailarina y sus amigos … die Primaballerina und ihre Freunde

Detalle bailarina: el bufón
J
ester is waiting for the dance to begin … El bufón está espando que empieze el baile … Der Narr warted, bis die Show beginnt

bailarina y sus amigos
The frog the rabbit and the gnome have a side show … la rana, el conejo y el gnomo hacen su propio show … der Frosch, der Hase und der Zwerg zeigen ihre eigenen kleine Show


A painting that moves … un cuadro que se mueve … ein Bild , das sich bewegt

Today I want to present you the first example of a series of moving paintings. It is done with acrylics on wood and its size is 70 x 100 cm. The mechanics are mostly wires, screws and threads.
Each of the wheels can be turned and something happens to the ladybug … Got curiosity? watch the video…..

Hoy, os quiero presentar el primer ejemplar de una serie de cuadros con movimiento. Esta hecho con acrílicos sobre madera, y mide 70 x 100 cm.

Our workshop was fun!

Last Saturday was the great workshop day, my friend Silvia and me did two workshops at the fun Scapbooking place Bambola casa Creativa in Tres Cantos near Madrid: chalkboard boxes with a drawer in the morning and an original recipe book in the afternoon.
All the participants were in a really good mood – although I hope it wasn’t only the smell of the chalkboard paint that made them so happy ;-), and we created really great things!
I had a fabulous time and got very inspired to do the next one soon!

See the details to our Creative Workshop … and participate!

In the morning of our creative Workshop-Day we will show you how to built a chalkboard box with a drawer to keep your chalks, and a space inside to collect all the papers and stuff that normally is accumulating on our kitchen tables… We’ll help you to design, paint and decorate the outside with new techniques and materials, you’ll make a real special and eye-catching chalkboard.
The afternoon will be about creating a decorative and fun recipe holder, that allows to explore all kinds of painting techniques and color combinations, let your creativity flow!
See more details on the poster, and don’t wait to long making your reservation, there is an early bird discount! 🙂

Have a nice and creative week!


How to do a little art box?

This week, I was thinking about an interesting piece for a workshop I would like to do with my friend Silvia, a experienced scrap-booker and  passionate mixed media artist. She asked me to figure something out that has to do with the boxes I made so far.
So, first of all, I was looking for some interesting thing to build that wouldn’t be too difficult for somebody who is not really used to work with wires, metal bars or thick cardboard – at the same time, I wanted the box to be useful and fun….
Well, before you want to teach something to others, you should really know the result yourself first, and see where the difficult parts are, how unexpected technical problems can be solved, and so on…
So I came up with two different boxes over the week, one is a wish box where a little bell rings and wiggles when you throw your wish in:

The other box is a message-box, depending on what you want to write on the font chalk-board, it can remind you of your shopping list, or it holds messages, poems, jokes, drawings, telephone numbers… whatever you like. The chalks you write with, are in a little drawer always ready to use.

Inside the box, there is space for paper and pencil to write your take-with-you-shopping-list, or for a new package of chalks, or it can be the ideal spot to hide something 😉

Ok, now I have a question for you: If you where to participate in a workshop – which box  would you be more interested to do?

The wish-box? The message-box? Both? None?
I’m very grateful for your comments, they are highly appreciated, and I wish you a great and productive week!
