Camino Characters

In September of 2018, my mom, youngest sister and I spent 5 weeks in Spain walking El Camino De Santiago Route De Français. The trip was unlike any other... Hundreds of miles walking on dirt country paths and over cobblestone streets... through towns, villages, and cities older than my country... Eating dinner every night with at least 7 different languages being spoken around the table. Inspiration was everywhere. Scroll to see a few snippets of that time.

A German Backpacker

While walking El Camino De Santiago in Spain there was a unique character... A man who always wore an orange sweater, had a yellow sleeping bag, big round glasses, and sun bleached gray hair. One day I got the chance to talk to him, he was German and as interesting as he looked. In his youth he had hitch hiked across the entire US, sometimes even via train. So, I had to create this piece.

A Tourist in Burgos

This older man was standing in awe of the Cathedral in Burgos, one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture I've seen. As he raised his camera to capture the scene, I took a snapshot in my memory.. His socks and sandals were awesome.
