Here are a few more shots from our quick stay in Madrid this past May. My favorite of these seven is the last. My dad and I were just wandering around in the late afternoon. We looked into a shop window filled with beautiful painted silk scarves and went inside. The owner and artist of the shop was a tiny, old woman who was thrilled when we showed an interest in her scarves. As best as she could in her limited English and our limited Spanish, she explained her process for painting different patterns and showed us her set-up in the back where the worked. I absolutely loved seeing the scarves stretched across theses and watching her paint a few strokes while she talked. It's a nice little memory.
