Valentin, dupa ce am avut grija sa il bat bine la cap in legatura cu felii si soiuri si texturi de lemn, a dat peste o bucata de nod dintr-o creanga oarecare si a feliat cateva (a se citi mult prea putine:) bucatele. Le-am pus deoparte, pentru ca erau cateva si m-am tot uitat la ele, parca neincumetandu-ma sa le pictez. Zilele trecute mi-am facut curaj si am avut un moment (fericit) de inspiratie, asa ca am luat doua, le-am pirogravat si m-am bucurat tare, tare de rezultat: o pereche de cercei micuti, finuti, pe un lemn neidentificat, cu o cromatica putin rosiatica si margine accentuata, mai inchisa, pirogravati simplu. Sunt foarte usori, se pot asorta la orice, iar tortita care se inchide nu le permite sa se agate de esarfe sau par, asa ca nu pot fi pierduti:)
EN: Valentin, after I insisted quite a lot on slices of wood, textures and different types of trees, found a piece of inside knot from an unidentified tree and cut a few pieces. I set them aside, because they weren't many and I just couldn't start using them. But the last days I found inspiration so I turned two of them into earrings. I simply woodburned them and the result was very pleasing: a small pair of delicate earrings, with a nice reddish color and a darker outline. They are very light and the hook can be closed, so it'squite impossible to lose them (it happens to me sometimes in winter, when I wear a scarf).
EN: Because the weather got warmer and the day longer, somehow the time for long readings is gone. So I started to enjoy "lighter" books and I was very happy to find a book with tapas recipes, small bites, easy to cook, but which look very fancy. I bought it from a supermarket, quite cheap and I wasn't sorry, because it has beautiful photos and great dishes, from common ingredients. So, in the evenings, for 15 minutes, after the day is wrapped and paintings are done, I enjoy (and I must admit it drool) Spanish recipes.
