Landscapes everything. The Quiz

The european Romantic landscapers of 19th-century, considered that ‘Someone that sees nothing in himself, he should stop depicting the landscape that is in front of him, till he can feel the nature’.

 Hi folks, today we have a funny quiz to guess. You only have to discover (not Wally… ha,ha…) where is the Tired Bearded.

I know…  Too easy, doesn’t it?

I want to use that work as example to remind my own theory about the ‘AMBIVALENCES’.  This  double effect that makes us to read a smile   🙂   instead of a colon, a hyphen and a parenthesis, is also another current example that often appears on the our life’s feedbacks.  

If you’re able to translate from spanish, I invite you to read six short paragraphs, about the ‘Ambivalences’ that I contribute when I was in the UAB (a university in Barcelona). Here is the link:

Lithography pencilHi folks, the pencil I’m holding in this picture it’s the kind used to draw on a stone. At university in Fine Arts, I chose the speciality in Engraving and Print Techniques for the fourth and fifth courses. One day the teacher showed us in a corner of the atelier, a bunch of stones ready to practise Lithography. All these had different format, and my choosing was for a squared one. Below you can see my little contribution to this post, ‘The players’.

Thank so much for your visit!
