"9 13 CALLE SAN GREGORIO SEES THE RESULTS OF 2016 ELECTION,"
Right after the 2016 presidential election, Pam and I visited Salamanca, Spain. I am a narrative visualist. This means I make art from the stories that my experience of this world evokes. It's an ancient tradition and in some way colors the way I look at things. I was on a walk with a fellow tourist along the Douro river road outskirts of this exquisite sand stone city, when this unusual building got my attention. I walked up to its imperessive gate and this scene perfectly captured my deepest angst.
The unusual building turned out to be Salamanca's museum of Art Nouveau and Art Deco.
When I learned that I wondered if the curators of this benchmark of beautiy might have been pleasantly amused at my geopolitical use of their facade.
