Paella Party

Welp! I'm done printing. Today was my last day in the shop making work, tomorrow I will go to pack my prints for traveling home. It has been an exhausting last three days because I printed all day, everyday. I'm physically drained, but mentally I am filled with joy from this experience. 

As promised, here are pictures of us eating paella. It was a wonderful lunch with Jordi and Clàudia. We chatted and laughed even though I don't speak Catalonian well and they don't speak english well. Correction, Jordi's english is pretty good. 

Paella is basically like Jumbalaya or gumbo. It had various meats and seafood in it. yum yum yum.

Yesterday Jordi invited me to go to Barcelona with him to deliver a handmade book and to attend an exhibition of an artist that has worked at Art Print Residency. We delivered the book and then he took me to see Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi buildings. We also went into a design store called Vinçon where I bought Martha Hartwell, my best friend, a birthday gift. :D   

Today, and the last three days, I printed. Here is some visual material of that. There are also photos of the shop friends that come throughout the week.
