you are a couple of drawings. The theme: The Sagrada Familia.
We have our home papered with drawings of it, photos of the
cranes and photos everywhere. He collects them: the photo
he finds, the photo he asks the one closer to him to cut it
for him (I'm trying to keep them in a portfolio for the time
he will be grown up). We have the Sagrada Familia made in
ice, with UFOS, in ground plan and elevation, in line drawings,
with fireworks, with the world contest swimmers, at night,
at day, with little ducks...
Pedrera? Just the same. We even have the drawings of the Caixa
de Catalunya (which is its symbol) everywhere.
the Park Güell, I don't know why he did not want to go
there till now, for he said that Gaudí was there, and
that he was afraid to see him ¿?. We took him this
year to the Sagrada Familia open doors days and I imagine
that, as he saw the architect's tomb there, he doesn't say
anything now. He will be 5 years old the 2nd of September
2003, and I had promised him to take him to see the Park in
the morning, and to visit the inside of la Pedrera in the
illusion is to collect everything related with Gaudí.
Last year, for his birthday, he only asked the film "Gaudí
and the Triplets". This year he has already asked a puzzle
we have seen of the Casa Batlló, la Pedrera and the
Sagrada Familia, altogether.
live in Arenys de Mar, and he went some day with the school
to Barcelona this year, to the Miró Foundation. He
spent the whole day asking his teachers that the coach should
pass in front of the Sagrada Familia, the Casa Batlló,
or la Pedrera. And when they came back, they were asked to
make a drawing with the colours of Miró. The teacher,
laughing, told me that he would have used the colours of Miró,
but you may imagine what he drew... THE SAGRADA FAMILIA!!!
send you a photo of his room so as to check I'm not telling
lies. This is only part of his room. The people we know, are
so pleased that so young a child feels such an admiration
towards this artist, that always they meet him they bring
him things related with... we have trencadís vases,
the Sagrada Familia in bronze, dishes about the subject, etc.
I'm not joking, but when I put him the music of Alan Parsons
about Gaudí, he was moved and if you intend to have
him quiet for a "small" while, you simply put him
this music and he listens it completely.
other great passion is Mr. Bean... He has also somewhat mania
with this personage. In fact, when they ask him what he wants
to become when grown up, he answers:
- "I don't know: either architect or Mr. Bean..."
- But he is still very young
