For a number of years I worked in the publishing house ACCION PRESS, S.A. We used to inform of so many modelling exhibitions and contests that took place in Spain or other countries. We were well received everywhere so these travels of field work and pleasure allowed me to visit a great amount of places and to meet so many interesting people.
I need to point out that, every time on our way down to Southern Spain, towards Andalusia, either to Fuengirola, Almeria, San Fernando or Alcala de Guadaira, I felt deeply thrilled. We left Madrid in a filthy weather and drove through large plains (La Mancha, Don Quixote’s parts); next, we reached a mountain pass and realised we were heading for the light: smooth rolling hills strewed with olive trees, snow-white villages and then the Sea. The people, the landscapes, the heating sun … Three days were enough for me to come back home feeling born-again. I have always liked drawing and painting by the sea.
