I took a few days as the weather, cold, dull, almost withered I´d say. I think that’s what happens to Superman, I take energy from the sun and sunless I´m nothing.
Today I´ll leave you a little piece that I painted a few months ago, it lacks some tweaks but I like it, it’s done on wood and cut it myself (have to save). 🙂
Little glass with roses. Oil on table.
I leave a picture also curious in my work, so a cocktail says goodbye when it ends; do the same “A WIDE SMILE”. 😀

Translated from daily De Volkskrant in the Netherlands:
How huge unemployment in Spain is becomes evident from the figures which the famous Prado Museum in Madrid has announced this week about the number of applications for eleven attendant jobs. In total no less than 19,000 people responded. …
The salary of a [Prado] attendant is about 13,000 euro per year.
The crisis causes more than half the people under 25 in Spain to be unemployed. Youth unemployment is thus – together with Greece – the highest of the entire eurozone.

Como a millones de personas me encanta Sorolla y aunque llevaba tiempo queriendo pintar un cuadro suyo, me daba bastante miedo hacerlo, así que cuando por fin me decidí, elegí el cuadro Niñas en el mar porque consideré que no era uno de los más representativos suyos. No sé, no era como Paseo por la Playa o El Baño del Caballo o Níños en la Playa que está en Museo del Prado (luego pongo unas fotos) Y la verdad sea dicha, es que además me pareció más sencillo.
Así que este miércoles me levante la mar de contenta pero con unos pelos de loca que no os podéis imaginar. Cualquiera que me conozca sabe que esto no suele…

One of the simplest, yet best quotes I ever heard was from Winston Churchill. He said “Never, never, never give up.” He had a very difficult life. His parents put him in a boarding school while they lived without him. He wrote letters begging his parents to come visit him there, but they seldom did, even though their travels sometimes took them quite near the school. But his rejections in life made him strong, strong enough to lead Great Britain through one of her most challenging and darkest periods of history, World War II. Many people couldn’t cope with the difficulties of the Nazi bombing of London, but because of the many difficulties Churchill had faced and conquered, he was able to stay strong and motivate that nation to never give up.
