You are my mirror

The typical tool of the jester is a mirror. He makes聽us look at ourselves from outside – and often it is because of this聽shift of perspective that we see聽this until the very moment so horribly serious situation in a completely new聽– and often times – quite funny聽way….聽that’s why today I send you a jester 馃槈
El instrumento t铆pico de un buf贸n es su espejo. Nos hace mirar a nosotros mismos desde fuera, como un expectador. Y gracias a este cambio de perspectiva vemos esta situaci贸n que nos parec铆a hasta justo ahora tan seria y alarmante de manera completamente distinta, y muchas veces bastante graciosa. Para no olvidar esto, hay hay un buf贸n…
Das Werkzeug des Hofnarren ist der Spiegel. Er zeigt uns unser Bild von aussen gesehen, wie ein Zuschauer. Dank dieser neuen Perspektive sehen wir dann pl枚tzlich dass diese furchtbar ernste und wut ausl枚sende Situation auch ihre – meistens sogar lustige – andere Seite hat. Zur Erinnerung heute ein Hofnarr….

It’s 5pm in Otter Village…grab a cup of tea and have a look!

Today I share some paintings of my sketchbook with you, one of them is “Tea time in Otter Village”. When Manu, a friend of mine told me that her favorite animals are sea otters and asked me to do an otter painting for her, I kind of discovered these fun furry cuties, with their surprised looking faces and their cool and relaxed lifestyle – or floatstyle?
“Tea time” is acrylic paint on sketchbook paper….

Have fun – relax and take an easy float聽 – and don’t forget tea聽time! 馃檪

 

Puppy portrait: “Remember how tiny I was when you got me?”

This tiny 2 months old sweetie will be a beagle – my friend Evelyn got him for her birthday. I decided to聽paint her聽a puppy聽portrait, so she remembers how little he once was ….

little beagle Tasco

His name is Tasco, and he is growing every day – very soon he won’t be a little baby any more, won’t pee in the kitchen any more, but I guess he’ll go on working on making house and聽 owners his own 馃檪
