Nature Boy

David Bowie era uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos. Admiraba tremendamente su talento, su ambición, y su habilidad para arrojar algo de luz sobre algunos de los aspectos más oscuros de la existencia humana. Al igual que muchos otros, estoy de alguna manera llorando su pérdida. Tras su tránsito en Enero, he estado leyendo sobre muchas de sus historias, y escuchado muchas de sus canciones. Hasta hoy no había recordado esta maravillosa versión de Nature Boy, (que tan elegantemente solía cantar Nat King Cole ), igualmente gozosa y dramática, que grabó para la película Moulin Rouge en 2001. Hay otras grandes versiones de esta canción de Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, y The Real Group.

David Bowie was an all time favourite of mine. I admired tremendously his talent, his ambition, and his ability to turn the light on to some of the darkest sides of human existence. Just like so very many others, I am somehow in grief for his loss. After his passing in January, I have been going through many of his stories, and listened to many of his songs. I didn’t until today though recall this wonderful version of Nature Boy, the son by Eden Ahbez from 1947  (which Nat King Cole so gracefully used to sing), equally joyous and dramatic, that he recorded for the film Moulin Rouge in 2001. There are also great versions of this song by Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, and The Real Group.

Textile Nature

Últimamente he pasado muchas horas sumergida profundamente en una nueva pasión: el diseño de estampados textiles. Por supuesto, obtengo mi inspiración de la Naturaleza. La Naturaleza es sencillamente un concepto tan vasto, que incluye, en cierta manera, casi todo!

Navengando por ahí me he topado con un fantástico blog, Artistas Textiles Inspirados por la Naturaleza, que me ha conducido al trabajo de Nanda Gajarawala, y mi corazón ha comenzado a cantar una canción de esperanza. ¿No son estos bordados simplemente sensacionales?

Lately I have spent many hours delving deep into a new passion: surface pattern design. I draw, of course, my inspiration from Nature. Nature is just such a vast concept, it includes, in a way almost everything!

Surfing around I stumbled upon a fantastic blog, Textile Artists Inspired By Nature, which conducted me to the work of Nanda Gajarawala, and my heart started singing a song of hope. Aren’t these embroideries simply stunning?

Macro Art Alcohol

Se crea o no se crea, estas imágenes están tomadas con un microscopio, observando bebidas alcohólicas. Aunque no soy tan fan del alcohol, me pierdo mirándolas, me quedo embelesada, consumida por su belleza.

Me pregunto cómo sería navegar el mundo entero con esta visión microscópica, que muestra una plétora increíble, una fiesta loca de colores, allí donde habitualmente el ojo humano no ve ninguna.

Para acceder a la colección entera, visita el sitio web de Bev Shots, Art. Distilled.

Believe it or not, these images were taken with a microscope, observing alcoholic beverages. Although I am not a fan of alcohol, I get lost staring at them, I get bewitched, consumed by their beauty.

I wonder how would it be to navigate the whole world with this microscopic vision, that shows an unbelievable plethora, a crazy party of colours, there where the human eye habitually sees none.
