Last weekend we took a 48 hour trip to Barcelona for a baptism and a barbecue. The weekend before we took advantage of a business meeting to spend a couple of days meandering Madrid. In addition to checking out the museum of costumes I spent about half a day in my favorite museum Reina Sofia. The 2nd floor houses my favorite pieces of art including works by Picasso, Dali, Juan Gris, and Miró just to name a few.
I picked up a few prints to go in the house. I like the soft brown and blue tones of both paintings.
Dali´s Woman at the Window (1925)
Juan Gris´ La Bouteille d´anis (1914)
Some other honorable mentions from the museum:
Rosario de Velazco
¨Adam and Eve¨
Cat and Crab
Alfonso Ponce De Leon
Self- Portrait (1936)
Paisaje de Ciudad (1928)
Somewhere along the way of searching for these images I stumbled across this website. http://www.coldbacon.com/tshirts.html In light of the recent shooting in Aurora, Colorado and the ongoing arms debate I can´t help but find these shirts appropriate. I get so angered by the people who defend the right to purchase heavy ammo and rapid fire weapons. I wish they would wear shirts like these so I would know to steer clear of them. They claim only crazies kill people, it´s not the guns´fault, I can´t help but think why a sane person feels compelled to have to access to these types of guns.
