Dwarfes like espresso….. Gnomo cafeinado … Zwerge mögen Espresso

The little dwarf scuttles along and didn’t want to join the parade without his tiny coffee pot. This is one of the last paintings of the second parade series , a few more to come….

El gnomito no sale sin su pequeña cafetera, y corre deprisa para mantener el paso – no tiene ni tiempo para tomarse una relajante taza de café con leche ;-). Pero da igual porque no ha pensado participar en las Olimpiadas…. Este ya es uno de las últimos cuadros de esta segunda serie de pinturas, vendrán algunos más….

a los gnomos les gusta el café

Der Zwerg geht nie ohne seinen Kaffee-Pot aus, und so auch diesmal: Er trippelt schnell dahin, um mit den anderen Schritt zu halten. Dies ist eines der letzten Bilder der Parade, es kommen jedoch noch ein paar nach….

Dwarf with a flower … Gnomo con flor …. Zwerg mit Blume

The dwarf has to move his short legs really quickly to keep pace with the parade…

El gnomo tiene que mover su piernecitas mucho, para seguir la procesión….

Der Zwerg muss rasch trippeln, mit seinen kurzen Beinchen, um mit der Parade schritt zu halten…

The garden markers are dressing up!


Beauty weekend for the KNOWMO garden markers: I’m doing tests with different surface treatments, the black surfaces are ready to write on, I rusted the steal of some and varnished it afterwards, and  others I just varnished to avoid rusting.
All together, they are now sitting on my backyard bench while they dry out, and I thought they are a nice crowd worth a group photo… which one you like best?

KNOWMO, the first useful garden gnome is here!

These gnomes makes you know more, that’s why I decided to call them KNOWMOs.

I had them made out of steal and the first few already  started their jobs, standing next to the freshly planted seeds and helping to remember what was planted where.

The markers are of normal steal and will be rusty within some time, what will give them a nice vintage look, and I think the rusty color will contrast nicely with the fresh green leaves that will (hopefully) grow around them soon….

Have a good week, and remember: spring is on its way…
