Goya's Ghosts

Last night i was watching on TV the movie Goya's Ghosts directed by Milos Forman. My mind was transported to year 1996 when my wife, a friend of us and i made the first opening of our fine art gallery showing a complete series of Salvador Dalí etchings based on the Goya's works Les Caprices, some of them i am showing here. The experience was great but art is a really hard business to keep. After almost two years we closed but that ignited my artist solo career.


  1. Interesting about your business and how cool to have Goya and Dali ; ) I envy your business venture. Our coffeehouse was for 4 yrs.

    Is the Goya film worth seeing?

    Will look in when we get back.


  2. I think any movie related to an historic character worth to see it, at least you will have another point of view. Do you have a coffeehouse?
    Have you seen Apocalypto?

  3. Getting ready to leave......yes, we saw "A" and it was OK.Sometimes, movies here are over done, if you know what I mean.

    If you look in my archives in the first NOV 23 entry, you will see a few items on our now closed coffeehouse.

    We moved fro Ca(me) and my partner, she came from Seattle. There was no Starbucks out here and no good coffee. Now, plenty of SB, and only 1 or 2 decent coffee places. We mostly purchase our beans online from a couple of different roasters.

    Your cds will be going out this week.

    C U! Cheers!

  4. I think competition is not problem to open a really good coffeehouse, often they burn the coffee or charge ridiculous prices for a cup without giving a really good coffee ambient.
    Maybe this crisis be the opportunity to open it again. I will advice you when i get the CDs, :)
