Where did you find your inspiration?

Very close, at home. I loved an old wooden window I found in an abandoned village, in the Catalan Pyrenees. I took it and drove it home. My mother complained a bit, until I started to paint it and she liked my work. I painted it so many times...
Regarding the style, I loved all art books, and as everyone else, I first admired the impressionism period. The colors of Van Gogh, Monet, Gaugin and Cezanne. I loved Cezanne, and I painted lots of fruits, specially peaches and lemons, and afterwards, cabbages and coliflori. 

Later on I discovered the still lives from the Spanish and Italian Barocco painters, like Luis Melendez, Sanchez Cotan. Then I put some dark shadows on the back of the fruits. I stayed on the dark period till I discovered Caravaggio.
