Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Another year that is almost gone. For 2015, I wish you inspiration, health and strength. No work is possible without that.
I wish you surprises. We all need encounters and situations that turn our lives upside down even if we do not believe that we need them and regret we cannot do what we want with our lives. Unforeseen circumstances generate art. Almost everything can generate art, by the way, if you look at it with new eyes.
I wish you peace. And I wish we artists can work concretely for peace. We already do, of course, as art is something that unites, where so many matters divide humans. But I hope we can find a way to do it more actively.
I wish you perseverance, in the creation process, in the let’s-break-the-rules process, in life. Because it is always too cold or too hot to paint, if you think about it ;-)

I wish you a very happy New Year!

A critical look at our society

If you are in the area of Malaga those days, you need to visit the drawings exhibition "trece tontas, un@ arrob@ y treinta pingüinos" of my colleague Félix Martín in the centre of Torremolinos. 
I am not sure how to translate this intriguing title, as both languages are foreign to me and I am not sure I did understand all the play on words around it - "Thirteen silly women, one at sign and thirty penguins", maybe.
The drawings are a pretext to look critically at our society and way of life - a gentle provocation.

The official opening was yesterday night, but you have one more month time to go.

Where? Sede de IU, Ramal de Manantiales, esquina Río Mesa, 29620 Torremolinos (Spain) 
When? Until mid-January, Monday-Thursday (except holidays), 6 p.m - 8 p.m. 
You may want to call before you go: 952 05 29 65

Salina La Tapa

Colder days make it possible to enjoy unique saline landscapes where there is absolutely no shadow. Time to stay between blue and blue, listening to the birds, looking at the water and the sky.

Here, the Salina La Tapa, near the town of El Puerto de Santa María (Andalusia, Spain).

Creating

Creating, I mostly do not think. At all. And I do not know exactly what is going on in my head. When I can remember it, I am not able to find any human words to describe these feelings or thoughts.
