Women Paintings at Maremagnum Promenade, Barcelona

Women Paintings at Maremagnum Promenade, Barcelona [enlarge]

These paintings of women wearing veils, hats or ties at Maremagnum promenade or Passeig D'Itaca looked so beautiful I decided to take a snap agaisnt the artist's will (check google maps below). I just don't know what gets into their minds when they see a big camera. You come with a small compact and nothing happens, you stick out some big lens and they immediately jump at your throat. Take it easy man, this is free advertising for your work which on the other hand is amazing and hypnotic, according to my opinion. Please buy him some paintings and tell him I was the one he shunned the other day.


  1. This is gorgeous. I love the colors and I agree, their faces are hypnotic.

  2. When I saw this on the portal, I thought that they were painted long scarves. They're lovely, either way, but I would love to have a long silk scarf with one of those faces on it. Wouldn't it be great?

  3. the paintings are wonderful!..I am always very careful taking pictures of paintings because they may think I wanna make a reproduction. Which is a nosense:)

    Hi Carlos,
    I enjoyed checking out your blog. I'm a recent grad in Silicon Valley, and I've just started a company that is mapping the blogosphere to our world. Here is an example of a blogger in Georgia who's plugged in: It can be fun to explore different localities.

    It's an easy process to get on board, and I can be reached at for questions or feedback. If you resonate with the vision of painting a global canvas of voices, please give VerveEarth a mention.

    Cheers! -Clayton

    Impressive.... :-)

  6. Thanks Annie for those comments. I really appreciate them all.

  7. Yes Kate I reckon they would sell like candy. Good idea.
    Zsolt. You are right. I would be selling Dalis and Picassos. I think when they do that is because there must be restrictions for selling art on the street and they take you for an inspector or a journalist airing some art dealers' obscure transactions.
    Clayton, I don't like promotions when using comments but I think your site is right and might interest people. Thanks for your visit (I already checked it and joined. Good luck)
