Okay, so I know New Years was awhile ago now, but I thought you guys might like to see some of the amazing art that I got to see during my holidays in Madrid!

Lucky you! The Sorolloa paintngs look like they'd be amazing to see in person. Didn't anyone stop you from phtographing at the museum? Hope all is going well with your studies1

Beautiful beautiful! I'm curious as well, how did you get the photos? I always get chased away when I try to take out my camera in a museum, even if I promise not to use the flash...ah well. I can't wait to see your newest paintings!

By the way, I nominated you for a "Kreativ Blogger Award". You don't have to follow up on it, but you can check out what it's about on my blog if you want. :)

Hey guys, hehehhe, okaaaaaayyy, so I guess I did kinda steal those photos at the Prado. We were allowed to take pics without flash at the Sorolla House, but for the ones at the Prado I had to sneak them really, um, sneakily with my iphone (and my sister keeping a lookout for me;) hehehe. I wouldn't have done it except that some of these ones I took I couldn't find anywhere in print or anything... so I did the only thing any self-respecting artist could do;)

Thank's for the Prado pics. It's hard to find reproductions of many great paintings, like these. -Rick
