Spanish extravaganza

March 12, 2017

I have been abandoned the website for along time!  Naughty naughty! shouldn't be any excuse, but it has been busy year.....

I am going to add at least a few pictures  from inspiring artist residency in Spanish mountains in 2016. Had a brill time with lovely carvers, humans whom came there from different locations: Netherlands, England, States, Australia, New Zealand with superb human Jon (from Wales) we had a whale of time. Carved in the daytime, fun, conversation, film .....in the evening time. We shared fun, enjoyment, sculpture house yummy cooked meals and Juan's delicious  3 course meals with hmmm carajillo coffee. Apparently it derives from spanish courage- in order to give soldiers courage in the history! Every week we had new episodes, from  refreshing "40 minutes walks" to  recording sessions of nature, carving. "UN meetings for the  sculptures!", so many things...  No need to mention fun part of arranging/packing/carrying the sculptures to put into planes ;0) Beautiful month spent with beautiful people in beautiful/unspoilt surrondings....

I am so happy that I have been invited to go there again, now, as overall assistant this year ;0)  Cannot wait... ;0)  Here are some pictures from last year:
