Back in the saddle
I’ve finally beaten back the beast- the Spanish bureaucracy- for the time being. Both of my kids are studying at different universities here in Barcelona, we bought a flat, and visas are figured out for the next 4-5 years. I share a beautiful studio from the 1800’s with 3 Argentinians and we communicate exclusively in Spanish. It’s taken a lot of work to pull this off, but I can’t imagine a better life.
Art-wise, I’m finally producing again. I finished a couple of commissions recently and delivered them during a quick trip to the US this spring. I’m currently working on a series whose focus is Jupi, my little pug. I’ve been invited to show a couple of pieces in the Blab! Show at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica in the fall, and my work was recently selected again for the Art Auction in June at the Crocker Museum in Sacramento.
Well, that’s about it for the moment. Look me up on Instagram (@mattduffinfineart) to see the most up to date photos of life here.
