'Cierre los ojos y ábrelos.
No hay nadie, ni siquiera tu mismo.
Lo que no es piedra, es luz.'
- Octavio Paz
Close your eyes and open them.
There is no one, not even yourself.
That which is not stone, is light.

oil on burlap
Found a bundle of burlap neatly folded on the curb near the Plaza del Pino, Barcelona. Made a series of dancing goats in response to a gypsy band that would show up on my street. Older brother on a trumpet, sister and younger brother on simple drum and tambourine, and the goat would climb the step ladder and dance on the top step. Pocket money flowed. I was also looking closely at Romanesque art in the Museo Nacional del Arte de Cataluña, and the work of Antoni Tàpies.
