A very colourful character with his brush in his right hand and a big fat cigar in his left hand. And just look at the colours in his paintings warmed by low sunset, he is a brilliant artist who ever he is. I always try and photograph artists because they make great subjects, sometimes I ask and never had a artist say no to me yet. I do not speak Spanish but I don’t think he minded. I wish I could have taken close-up pictures of his painting but that would be pushing it, the picture with the paintings against the pillar has made nice screen savers on my computer.
