MADERA A LA DERIVA/DRIFTWOOD (Drawing Challenge)

Gracias a Mano, que me invitó a participar en el Drawing Challenge yo tengo la oportunidad de mostrar esto.
Esta madera es realmente una madera flotante, que una chica amiga, que el verano pasado estuvo en la playa de Cabo Polonio, Uruguay, me trajo como regalo, ella la encontró en la arena y recordó que a mí me gustan estas cosas.
Y yo pensé: ¿Esta madera habrá sido, tal vez, de un viejo velero que traía desde Europa un enamorado a casarse con una chica americana ... y se hundió por una tormenta en alta mar ? (si las historias de amor tienen un final trágico quedan en la Historia, de otro modo, mueren con los amantes sin que nadie se entere).

Además, algo paradójico ocurrió, si esta madera fue parte de un viejo velero que navegó los mares, ahora está aquí, en las montañas, a 1000 kilómetros de la playa donde el mar lo arrojó, ni siquiera el alma del muchacho, si estaba en esta madera, va a estar cerca del puerto donde ella murió esperando.

 Thanks to Mano, who invited me to participate in the Drawing Challenge I have the opportunity to show this.
This wood is really a driftwood, a girl friend, who was last summer on the beach in Cabo Polonio, Uruguay, brought me as a gift, she found it on the sand and remembered that I like these things.
And I thought:  This dritfwood, will have been a part, perhaps, of an old wooden sailing ship that brought from Europe a lover to marry an American girl... and sank in a storm at sea? (if the love stories have a tragic end remain in history, otherwise die with lovers without anyone knowing).

Also, something paradoxical happens, if this wood was part of an old sailboat that sailed the seas,  now is here in the mountains, 1000 km. from the beach where the sea tossed, not even the boy's soul, if it was into this wood, will be close to the port where she died waiting.

Cuanto misterio detrás de esa madera,
sin el romanticismo de tus palabras,
podríamos suponerse muchas hipótesis, ¿que tal un barco que traía esclavos? y naufrago,o un barco pirata con un gran tesoro a bordo. Pasando a otro tema, el color rojo del fondo del blog, mantiene alguna relación con el triunfo del caudillo bolivariano.

...también puede ser un pedazo de una caja de lonjas de cerdo en salmuera, perdida en el mismo naufragio...

Yes, we can think of a lot of stories if we find driftwood...I hope that most of them are good ones. I wish you a nice weekend!

i believe your interpretations are quite stunningly romantic... and probably a little magically realistic.
vivid imagination, this is all a piece of driftwood needs, frankly.
cheerio,

Oh, if only this driftwood could talk... Maybe your suggestions are not far from the truth? Because this piece of wood HAS its history - maybe dramatic or maybe romantic...? It has been an eyewitness of events that we'll never learn about and has a serious sea experience. How exciting that its loooong adventure finishes on dry land, in your home, where it can feel safe and already receives a special attention!:)

By the way, Mano's blog is so interesting!

Oh, that's a nice piece of driftwood, and the story is probably true.

Your blog is looking very Fine Art now. Where are the cartoons? So sad and serious to not see cartoons.

Have a nice Sunday

Manuel Ameneiros dijo...

¿"manipulador de alimentos" ???
¡Qué poético y romántico, hombre!
¿Te imginas una novela con un título tipo: "La dulce historia de amor de Eréndira y el manipulador de alimentos" ?
¡Genial!

Hi Roberto, the exciting thing for me is this: I live in Holland and you live in... ?Spain? You've got this soft old piece of wood from who knows where. Where stood the tree it came from? But it was found in Uruquay and guess what, in march this year I was in Cabo polonia/Uruquay. So I can imagine it lying there on the beach, between the sealions and the pittoresk little hippy houses! And I very much like the man who stares at the moon. Bye!Hedwig

Oh gosh Roberto you are the most romantic artist I have met in a long time!! What a story you tell. I think you may not only be a wonderful artist, but a wonderful writer. This piece of wood takes on a powerful luminescence due to your infusion of 'story' into it. So you have taken words to paint the wood, rather that paint on a brush. It is even more colourful your way. Stunning. *smiles* Norma

prefiero pensar en un pequeñísimo barco pesquero. en un pescador y su vida de mar.
