If you can mend it...


Title: Si puedes arreglarlo...
50 x 60 cm
19.6 x 23.6 in

Últimamente estoy trabajando con fondos negros e hilos de colores. Me temo que no consigo que las fotos enseñen bien los colores o las texturas. Espero que podais imaginarlo.

Lately I've been working with dark backgrounds and color threads. I'm afraid I don't seem to succeed at taking a good photograph, faithful to the colors and the textures. I hope you can use your imagination a little.

This is gorgeous Esti. It's always disappointing when something doesn't look as it should. But yes I think we can use our imaginations. :-D

¿de qué hablarán? ¿Qué situación habrá que arreglar? ¿Qué consejos le estará dando?
Este dibujo suena a terapia textil...

What will their conversation be?
What is it to be mended?
Advices and therapies as the textile grows...

me siento identificada con los tres puntos suspensivos que están abajo ala izquierda de la labor textil...

me recuerda un poco a las mujeres de los arrantzales de lekeitio que se sentaban en el puerto horas y horas mendando las redes. de que hablarian? y de hablan tus mujeres?

It's wonderful. I like so much how you work with different colours. The speach bubbles (are they called that) are great on the dark background.
Happy Monday

i always love seeing what your characters are wearing. i like the striped shirt with the long white skirt. i know how frustrating it can be getting the colors to look right...i have that problem with fabric all the time.

I love this image (as always) - wondering what it is that can be mended - a heart? a relationship? a garment?
