Autumn in Granada–Make Prints, Pick Your Breakfast from the Vine

grapes for breakfast

Autumn is a wonderful time to work in Granada. The summer heat has passed, the nights are cooler, the occasional rain has refreshed the atmosphere, and the days are delicious.

I took the summer off this year, except for doing a bit of my own work, a few new liquid metal prints of the Alhambra and some editioning. I love the liquid metal technique for a dealing with a subject that has been done to death. The epoxy medium dries quite quickly so you have to work fast and working in gunk on a plate is necessarily loose, so the results always look fresh and original.

I’ve got another Australian artist coming to work one on one for a month–the last half of September and the first half of October–but after that I’m free to work with other artists. And my Gallinero residence is available from October 15. We’ve just painted the interior (with old-fashioned Spanish-style live whitewash, which not only gleams white but also sanitizes and imparts a squeaky-clean aroma to the place.)

The grapes on the arbor over the Gallinero terrace are ripening, so guests staying there can just reach out through the louvered doors and pick their breakfast. It’s a delightful experience, especially if you don’t have grapevines over your breakfast table at home.

Looking forward to seeing you and making some prints together!

    Hi Maureen,
    My friend and I are planning a trip to Spain this mid September for a couple of weeks, 2014
    We were wondering if you had any short workshops that we could take while we are visiting. This is my first time to Spain coming from the central coast of California.
    Currently we are doing wood blocks but I did metal in college(ancient history).
    I watched the Chop video..and loved the concept of the embossed signature.
    We are just starting to plan our trip and would love to hear from you.

    my website doesn’t have my art page currently…It used have my clay work and some paintings posted but life took a big detour and I am now just reentering the art roundabout .
