The spectacular grace of Gaudi and his surreal artistry is the sole reason for my love of Barcelona.
The Sacred Family Iglesia is astoudning in its magnitude and beauty and makes for an enchanting experience pre-sunset.
The colors. The silence. The wonder of such a creation begun over 100 years agos. This is La Sagrada Familia.
I am in awe of the perfect alignment of the structure and humbled by the often overlooked brilliance of humanity in expressing God.
Devotion to divine Truth can stir the heart deeply and enable one to master seemingly formidable tasks.
The church external is always but a symbol of the sacred space within. Massive edifices no matter how illustrious can never approach the grand infinite in each of us.
Gaudi was truly a genius and I am spurred on in my own art to be bolder, grander, fearless.
Everywhere in Barcelona his influence can be felt and there is such a creative phenomenon at play.
Come to Barcelona, this eclectic city in Spain and bring your journal, your sketchbook, your open heart. The streets are paved with color, energy and verve.
