    I truely LOVE this painting, cant put my finger on it, but i think its the relationship between the sky & the buildings. no matter what, thats a keeper!

    thanks mikielikesigns2. i really like it too - more and more so. it really is growing on me. it was very dirty, and i cleaned it off some and it really improved alot. unfortunately there are a few small holes in it. i sure wish i could find out more about the artist. she may have married or changed her name. she received a scholarship in 1939 - when the school went through a major transition of some type, and scholarships were given to the most talented young people in spain. she was a recipient. but i haven't found out anything else.

    i found another one by Balero last night - a parisian scene. i loved it too. it appears to have been sold for over $800 and then reproduced and there's a million of them now for anywhere between $16 and $750 - i don't really understand what that's about. whoever they were that bought/sold it didn't know anything about her either.
