Our day with Dali

Our Day with Dali

Jackie took us to visit Teatre Museu Dali in the Catalan town of Figueres, Dali's home city.  

Obviously Dali designed his own museum, who else would put giant eggs on the roof of a building, what a hoot!

This car with the statue on the hood has "people" and vines inside and rests in the central courtyard.

Dali loved to tell people that he was a genius and I believe he was.  He could draw like a genius, he was wildly creative and of course he was a marketing genius.  Weird, but genius just the same.

This gold dragon with egg is one of many similar pieces Dali designed.

We did not have time to sketch or paint during our visit to the Dali Museum so Laura saved the Guide map and cut it up to create this collage in her Watercolor Journal.  I included tips on creating collages in Watercolor Journals from Laura in my October Newsletter in an article titled 10 TIPS FOR CREATING ARTFUL MEMORIES WHILE TRAVELING.  If you would like to receive a copy of the newsletter, email me using the contact page on my website,

We went to a cute place for lunch that serves Creps Brittany style, so Jackie felt right at home, because she is orginally from Belgium.  They made a bar out of this cute car so Jackie and I had to have our photo taken in it.
