Photos of the wonderful sculptures of Fallas, Valencia’s annual carnival

Apparently no one is getting notifications from that site.  Please go to!blog/cxhw

There you will find photos of various Fallas (foam and wooden sculptures often satirical in nature and up to 75′ tall) as well as a video of the amazing street lights which are also famous, and the sound and light shows they do nightly during Fallas (March 1-19 each year).

Adding your email to my new blog list


You might be getting a notification from my new blog location asking for you to confirm your subscription. This is a free blog and I have no more server space for photos so I have a paid site which I also use for my art. This means I post a link here which takes you to my art site when I have to post photos.   Eventually I will move my art to a wordpress site and thus will be able to merge the two.

I am also having a problem with people not getting notices from my art blog.  Now that I have figured out what the problem was here I will work on that one.

My email forwarding failed some time back and I just now realized it.  There are number of posts under ‘Art’ and ‘Fallas’

New work

“Frolicking On The Beach” is based on a photograph of a high school friend.  It was just such an inspiring photo that I spent a few days on a graphite version.  She really likes it and I think you will too.
