My wife is very smart. She devours guide books and seeks out information on places we go to visit. I of course know nothing about Gaudi. She rattles off all kinds of stuff about the guy's history. It usually goes in one ear and out the other. I do give her props. She is a great person to travel with. We arrived at this church Gaudi designed. I stayed outside and sketched. She went in to see it. Some people may not understand this. How can an artist like myself go all the way to Spain and then trek to the friggin Gaudi church and then not go inside and see what it looks like. As I've stated before, my time is precious. If I went in with Yun, then I couldn't have drawn it. It's that simple. The funny thing is that I never have second thoughts. I don't say to myself, Oh hell I should have went in. My drawing matters to me more. This is one of those drawings I was able to bang out quickly. Because Yun was not inside very long, I had to color it in later at our hotel. the coloring was fairly simple. I just memorized it in my head. By the way, what I wrote on the drawing is true. She did buy the most beautiful bottle opener I've ever seen.
