Pop-up show in Rio Vermelho, Florianopolis

 Here are some photos from a pop up show, held last night at  Jonathan Heald's elegant place in Rio Vermelho, in the North of the island:


 Some Bolivian pochades

The evening was a pleasure and it gave me a chance to look over my work from 2014.

Many thanks to all who came, and to J. Heald for his fine hospitality.

A day trip to the continent: I am slowly getting things ready for a longer excursion to Lapa, in Parana, and back again, between christmas and New Year.

Possible pre-selection for a pop-up show

This is a possible pre-selection for a pop-up show up in Rio Vermelho, at a friend`s house, on the 18th. 

It`s important to show work, if only to give oneself a notion of what one has acheived. I`m going to be showing some pictures from this year- a selection of about forty altogether- and I`ll include work from Bolivia and London, though mainly they`ll be from Brazil. 

I`m fairly happy about the general standard- inevitably, there are repetitions and the odd dud, but I managed to maintain a fair momentum across the months, and after selection the display should be reasonably good.


To buy work, please email me: 

All the pochades cost 120 pounds sterling plus 20 pounds post and packing (this covers up to five pochades). I accept the equivalent in other major currencies. 

Pictures take up to 21 days to arrive.

Rio Vermelho, nature

Rio Vermelho, nature, oil on card, 15.5 x 17 cm

Rio Vermelho is one of those relatively obscure parts of the island which, like Ratones,  I love to visit.

There is something mysterious about it that invites a sort of painting, derived from Corot (a French master whose work, once so famous, is falling into obscurity) and which concerns the secret.

Canto da Lagoa, large tree on a ridge

Canto da Lagoa, large tree on a ridge, oil on card, 15 x 18 cm

Painted close to the where other "ridge" paintings were exectuted: there is a lot of interesting subject matter here: the road curls and undulates happily and there are still small farms despite the encroachment of suburban developments nearby.
