I just got back from Gandia near Valencia where I had a great time painting with Mugraff, Secle, and Johe. La Cris and her collaborators put together this beautiful project with no motivations to achieve fame, fortune, or likes. IT was a pure example of a neighborhood responding to a spark of creativity and getting organized. While we painted, local musicians played, the local sound and video arts high school took advantage and made a million videos, old and young came together, local business and individuals rallied...it brings a tear to the eye. Clearly the locals were appreciative as the local newspaper demonstrates. Might be an overstatement, but I´ll take it.
