These two photographs were taken on Calle Verdi in the Gràcia district, Barcelona, this past weekend. Yummy, huh? I have seen this construction site a few times over the last month or so, and now I realize why I couldn't get it out of my visual memory: Above, it's the delicate falling paper (not to mention the wrinkle pattern left behind by the adhesive);
and here, it's the red-topped steel posts, adding rhythm and color to the composition.
Look for these inspirations in new work to come!

Ascención (...a mi mateix) / Ascension (...to myself) 2010
mixed media on wood
100 X 70 cm / 39.5 X 27.5 inches
I haven't been blogging of late, but I have certainly been painting. Now I've got lots to post for your perusal. I'll start with a commission I just finished, above.
The paint is thinly applied in this piece with many, many layers of text from a truly inspiring Moving Story (español) written in Catalan that I received from an anonymous donor. Thank you, "Buster Keaton".
You may recognize the stairs drawn in perspective from an earlier post.
And a special thanks to Joan and Miquel for adopting this one. You two inspire me.
