There’s just one day left for the ebay auction of “Las Bodegas de Borja,” a 33×22 cm oil on linen painting by Cecilia Gimenez, the octogenarian whose botched restoration of “Ecce Homo,” a fresco on the wall of her church in Borja, Spain, has brought her international acclaim. Current ebay bid for the landscape is 1020 Euro. Cecilia donated the work to Caritas, a Catholic charity, which put the painting up for auction.

I looked up “bodega” and found three meanings — wine cellar, storeroom, and grocery store. Not sure what Cecilia is depicting in her painting, but I’m impressed by her drafting skills. Olé, Cecilia.
