My plant of kale has been attacked by worms. I think it still has a beautiful pattern
A leaf of my kale, above a marine shell
A very interesting leaf that I´ve found, it has the texture of velvet. I suppose it´s a succulent.
The upper pictures are from my kale´s leaf
A ruined dry leaf full of duck excrements, that I´ve found at the park. I´m interested on the morphology, the shadows and textures

One of my neighbors trashed an old classic poster of Marilyn Monroe. I couldn´t help myself, she looks so beautiful, I took some pictures of the poster, which is in bad condition and full of dust, and finally I decided to take it into my kitchen. I´m not sure what I´ll do with it. Maybe transform it into a piece of art.
Closeness to death is a sad experience, at least in most cultures. But being a whole life dealing with death must be terrible. Accidents, major surgeries, lots of bad diagnosis, miscarriages.... in one single life. Like Frida Kahlo's, who knew how to make fun of her friend Death, having it converted into shocking art, until they finally embraced. I made this composition with a beautiful portrait and a Day of the Dead maraca I have at home, there's light in between to make it ethereal, somehow.
La cercanía a la muerte es una triste experiencia, al menos en la mayor parte de las culturas. Pero tener una vida entera lidiando con la muerte, debe ser terrible. Accidentes, cirugías mayores, cantidad de diagnósticos malos, abortos... en una sola vida. Como la de Frida Kahlo, quien supo burlar a su amiga ¨Muerte,¨ convirtiéndola en arte shockeante, hasta que finalmente se abrazaron.
Hice esta composición con un bonito retrato de Frida y una maraca del Día de los Muertos que tengo en casa, hay luz de lámpara entre ambos, para hacerlo de alguna forma etéreo.
