Did you know how RATS can be Heroes?

Posted on

Yes. There is a place where rats are heroes actually.

They save hundreds of human lifes a month. I’ve discover them looking for some mice care information through the net for a new home mate: our little mice “Mus-Mus”.

The idea looks so great, that I decide collaborate with them, and I’ve been volunteer for a year, helping the organization with Spanish translations.

Now I going to collaborate again. I will donate one of my Felted pieces, made exclusively for them, to collect some money for their target: to keep on training sweet Hero Rats to avoid mines in Africa and Asia, as well as tuberculosis detecting.

Tribute to The Guernica, by P. Picasso.

Posted on Updated on

This is a little tribute to one of my favorite painters: Pablo R. Picasso.

The Guernica.

This picture, it is very meaningful to me; my father leads me to see it when it arrives Spain in 1981.. it was placed behind an enormous armoured glass to protect him from a possible act of vandalism.

Today, years has gonne, and I have the tradition to visit it every year if  I can, at National Art Museum Reina Sofía in Madrid. (that old horrible armoured glass it is not needed anymore)

It is an enormous picture, and you can stand for minutes in front of, contemplating each datail, each black, grey or white brushtroke.

So this is my humble tribute to it: The peace simbol, The Hurted Horse of The Guernica.

A Needle felted Brooch. Beautiful and original, and a nice Simbol.

May be my next project will be The Bull (El Toro) of the same picture. It is just needed…

And now you can see him just born!

WORKING HARD; A new project on the way.

Posted on Updated on

I love this part of the creative process; if you look at it, sure you can’t see anything interesting… but in my mind I’m seeing exactly which is going to be the result.

This is a Blue Roan Apaloosa Horse that finally finished just today; I’ve been working on it for three days, altogether around eleven hours of work. My neck just tell me when I must stop.. I use to suffer hard pain on it when I’m concentred felting too much time in a row…

I use only wire (pipe cleaners) for legs… never include wire inside neither of my pieces. I use to do it when I was a beginner… But I think, needle felting must to be that: FELT, that is to say WOOL and nothing more. It is my point of view…
