I recently returned from Spain, and tomorrow I'll begin posting the paintings I did there. I spent most of my time in Barcelona and Montserrat. I'm sorting through photos, which I will post on Facebook soon. Join me there to see those.

To start, here is a photo of my first painting on my easel in Spain. If you can make it out in the photo, I'm painting a still life of a pair of sardines! I got them from Barcelona's Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, or 'La Boqueria' for short. One of Barcelona's most well-known landmarks, it's a large public market that was one of my all-time favorite places in Barcelona.

When I post the sardines painting and auction tomorrow, I'll also post photos of my adventures in La Boqueria, where I saw the fish and couldn't resist buying some to paint! The last time I painted fish was over ten years ago, but I enjoyed it so much that I may visit Philly's Reading Terminal Market soon to find more fish to paint...
