The Doors of Barcelona


We arrived in Barcelona on Friday. Thank you for all of your well wishes.   The 7 hour plus flight went pretty fast and they even gave us dinner.  I couldn’t wait to see all of the different architecture. I thought Gaudi and tiles were going to be the highlight for me.  Instead I have been blown over by their wrought iron detailing – their doors, balconies, window grills. 

It is such a coincidence that there has been so much of it that is so different and so beautiful.  I give a presentation tilted “Inspiration From Squiggles and Dots”. It’s all about finding inspiration from stuff.  Stuff like sidewalks, wallpaper, fence railings, Mexican tiles, and wrought iron.  I am currently working on a piece that has been inspired by wrought iron that I have seen in many different places. 

So I would like to share my version of the doors of……. Barcelona.  The variety offers countless sources of inspiration. Click on each door if you woula like to see more detail.
