Ayer me escribió Montse Riqué felicitándome por la publicación de mi escena Mediterránea en la revista Miniaturas y me dió una alegria tremenda . Todavía no había podido comprar la revista este mes y no lo había visto, así que hoy he corrido al quiosco claro. Y mis padres ya tienen una :)
Muchas, muchas gracias al equipo de la revista, es una emoción muy bonita que nunca había experimentado.

Yesterday Montse Riqué wrote me congratulating because my Mediterranean scene has been published in the Spanish magazine "Miniaturas" and it gave to me a tremendous happiness :). I had not still bought the magazine this month and I had not seen it, so today I have run to buy it. And my parents already have one:)
Many, thank you very much to all the magazine team, it is a very nice emotion that had never experimented.
If you do click in the picture you will enlarge. This is what is written, translated from Spanish of course:
I would like to show you one of my recent scenes dedicated to the Mediterranean. I was born in Barcelona, so it is present in my life and I love to be close to it. As you can see the escene is not very big, though it is full of things related to the sea and the nautical theme. Practically everything was done for my, except all the shells, shells and mini skeletons of hedgehogs (that me Sabiha sent from Holland) and that are a mini treasure since I am a biologist and they are real. Also there are other Sabiha's precious gifts (the draw of the crab), of Marver (some nautical maps), of Carmen (the small dolphin that it appreciates in the network of fishing) and the Mavi Fernandez's hyacinth that I bought time ago.
I wanted that everything was white or blue with his different ranges to be able to harmonize better.
The whitewashed walls and the rustic joist give a seaworthy air and very Mediterranean as the window across which you can see precious people Cadaqués in Girona . The window and the table are the big protagonists. The table is done following Leo Furtado's tutorial using clothes pegs. I decided that the surface table would be done with real mosaic, and there it is, in whitly and light blue. I did a fish net and added many shells and winkles gathered in the shore of the beach during the summer. In a scaled box they guard the nautical letters and some maps (maybe of hidden treasures). I did the tiny lighthouse with a hood of felt-tip pen, part of the packing of a collyrium and dried air paste, and all the frames of the pictures using polymer clay and balsa wood.The lamp is identical to one that I have at home and it was difficult to me to do becauseI am not used to work with tin. The tiny ship, took me days to think how to do its hull. Ultimately the solution came eating pistachios, it is half shell and the rest I spin, balsa wood ardboard. It is baptized with the name of my son Arnau.
