Día de las Madres

Coraline Feets
My mother day is an special day for me.
I’ve been a mom since my first pregnant. Unfortunately I lost that little angel. Every day I remember him, specially in this day. It is hard. I can’t stop cry for you. But now I have another blessing to share in this day. My second child, my little sweet, Coraline.
These few words are for you God.
Thank you, God for love me. Thank, for the miracle of the life. Thank you for the hope.Thanks, for the opportunity to be with my other baby in this world. I know that my first baby is with you. And that give me peace because you’re taking care of him. I know that he has your love, I know that he has the hugs that I can’t give him physically. I know that he is waiting for his mom, and I know that he understands that for now I have to be with his sister. Please tell to my baby:
Don’t be sad baby. I will give you one day all my love. I need your hugs too. So, be a good boy. Mama will never forget you. Mami love you too.

The beauty of the dark. The Crow

Raven

It has a bright black color and a very peculiar call.  Its mysterious  or the sense of fear attract many people.  Although it is a  bird that attract many people I had never noticed how many crows are around my home until one day I accepted a commission to paint a crow.   Since that time I noticed that everyday specially during the afternoon I hear its vocalization through my fireplace.

There are many things that we can find about this emblematic bird.  Through the history it has been a symbol in different cultures.  Most of the time  as death representation.  His presence in the war is a symbol of death. But they  also are known as  carries of information like in the Norse mythology, Odin has a pairs of crows in his shoulders  Huginn and Muninn. In the Hinduism  they believe that  the presence of the crow  in their house give omen to the people.

They also are represented as  protectors. In the Buddhism  and Tibetan disciplines the crows are protectors.   Dharma Mahakal is represented by a raven.  He was reincarnated in the first  Dalai Lama.  The legend tell that, during birth of Dalai Lama  his home was attacked by thieves, forcing their parents to flee. When they returned they saw the Dalai Lama alive and surrounded by crows.

In the literature, the crow has been an immortalize.  Who don’t know, the poem of Edgard Allan Poe? “The Raven“.  Or  ” The Seven Crow” by the Grimm brothers.  Or the comic book series “The Crow” by James O’Barr.

Well, there are many things that I can continue mentions about this mysterious bird. But for me the crow or the raven is a bird that I immortalized through my art.  The title can sound enigmatic or esoteric but isn’t mean nothing occult.  Everything was created for God.  He did all the things unique and with purpose.  I noticed his presence around me. That does not mean it is something mystical. It is simply a noble and humble bird that every day gives me his peculiar greeting .

Summer Tanager

It’s cold outside.  I only can be inside my home and drawing with my colored pencils.  I did this Summer Tanager. My inspiration is the cold weather because I need to be warm.  So work for me  thinking about the warm weather of the summer.
