Eyes wide open



Son muchos los días en los que bloguear muestra su cara positiva. No sólo por la inmediata reacción a mis dibujos, mis fotos, mis pequeñas historias y mis divagaciones. No sólo por la satisfacción inmediata que pueda sentir, ni el apoyo y ánimo que encuentro en cada comentario. También en las consideraciones y apreciaciones que sobre el arte y el proceso de tener un blog hacen otras personas. Son muchas, pero como muestra, las palabras de Lisa Solomon o the Heather Moore dan vueltas en mi cabeza.

El blog es mi pecera particular. Un mundo de exposición reducida, significativa, lleno de símbolos. Bajo la mirada de los míos y de los de más allá de la pantalla, nada pasa desapercibido, y llegas a compartir tus momentos con la clara confianza de que siempre te entiende alguien.
Gracias



Many times blogging has a positive effect. It's not only because the inmediate reaction to my drawings, my pictures, my book, my little stories or my ramblings. Not only because of the inmediate satisfaction I get from all the support and encouragement I feel from the comments. It's also because I learn a lot from the different appretiations and points of view about the art process and being an artist who blogs that other people write about. I've read quite a few, and some of their words have sticked to my mind, as for instance those of Lisa Solomon and Heather Moore.

My blog is my personal fishtank. A world of limited, significant, exhibition, full of symbols. Under the stare of my people and the people on the other side of my screen, nothing goes unnoticed, and you end up sharing your moments, trusting that there's always somebody who will understand your words.
Thank you

Creo q ya lo dije una vez, pero la bogosfera hace q nos sintamos comprendidos por gente que ve la vida de una forma más cercana a la nuestra, o que entiende nuestra pasión o interés por cosas que no le interesan a todo el mundo.

Desdeque descubri los blogs, siento que viajo sin viajar, que socializo sin salir de casa,cada dia vivo un rato en un barco en Amsterdan(Pia) o un poco en Marraquesh,cada dia alguien pinta mi dia.
Por otra parte, poder hablar de mi en el blog me esta haciendo reflexionar sobre muchas cosas personales.
Me encanta este mundo Blogger y cada Mañana Piname el dia es el primero que abro!!!!

please sir said...

I agree - the immediate support and comments are always such a delight (and blessing!). Glad you are enjoying the blogworld!

I am amazed at the new perspective and meaning blogging has put on things for me. I really connect with what Heather said about it being an added incentive to finish something that might otherwise have gathered dust. As an artist who is a mother that has been invaluable to me.

And Esti, people (artists/mothers) like you are the shining stars that make blogland the wonderland it is. Thank you! :-)

Katrina said...

what a lovely post. i completely agree, although i haven't been blogging for very long compared to some, it's been a true gift to connect with folks by documenting my own creative process. a delight!

karin said...

Esti, I think that's it: you hope or think there is somebody who is with you when you are blogging, whether known or unknown.
