From Taubate


A view of Taubate from concrete Jesus, oil on card, 12;6 x 10.4cm

From Taubate, a city that sprawls somewhat shapelessly across a valley. It has little of distinction, but in a way that makes it likeable, lending it a fairly laid-back atmosphere.

They have placed the usual ubiquitous Jesus overlooking the city. His head, usefully, has an arial transmitter sticking out of it: I painted from just below him.


This concludes the paintings done during my big July trip. I think the next big trip will be to Chile and Argentina.



  1. I especially like the second painting - the colors, composition, and abstracted quality. Very nice!
