  1. What has always astounded me is the incredible lifelike quality of this art. So much abstract art is pure b/s which mug punters pay stupid amounts of money for, a wonderful con like a lot of of top class wine.

  2. If you did’nt visit Spain in the 60s’ early 70s’ you have no idea what beautiful little fishing villages dotted the Med coast or the excellent local cuisines, all gone, discarded in the pursuit of greed. Almeria/Malaga/Sevilla – all lost.
