Chaplin and the kid (1999)

Pencil on paper, 21 x 30 cm

Drawn while studying at University of Navarra. What I remember most about this drawing is that when I finished it I stored it in a binder and most of the graphite faded. And I had to redraw many parts of it!

Australia (2000)

Pencil on paper, 21 x 30 cm

Drawn in Pamplona (Spain) during my stay at the University of Navarra to learn the Northern blot technique. I copied it from a National Geographic magazine that I found in the apartment where I lived when I was studying Biochemistry at the same University. I remember being drawing the face of the girl sitting on the couch with my former university flatmates while watching TV.

Mikonos (2002)

Watercolor on canvas, 15 x 42 cm

Painted in Seville in (maybe) 2002, during my PhD. I remember my brain breaking down trying to figure out how to paint water! Finally I guess I got some kind of water effect…

Girl (2005)

Watercolor on paper, 30 x 45 cm

Painted in Freiburg (Germany) during my stay with Prof Salim Al-Babili. Unforgetable months in all senses, and particularly proud of the hands shadows. Very difficult the hair… And with Salim and previous work with Javier Avalos, I discovered that fungi are capable of synthesizing their own retinal!

Edu in Malaga (2009)

Acrylic on canvas, 92 x 65 cm

Painted in Madrid from a picture.

Metro Sol (2009)

Acrylic on canvas, 20 x 20 cm

Painted in Madrid, trying to have a couple of paintings ready for a 20×20 exhibition in the art gallery next to my apartment. What I remember the most about this one is the times that I shared my doubts about painting with the lady gallery owner and she kept on telling me: Keep painting!

Purple against white (2009)

Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 81 cm

Painted in Madrid in October 2009. In a single afternoon, with a brush in each hand, one with purple and the other one with white, and tapping both brushes against the canvas at the same time. Patricia sitting next to me on the couch. I remember that couple of hours like fever and effervescence. After finishing it, I decided that it looked better upside down!
