The wanderer over Brazil (the red kite)

The wanderer over Brazil (the red kite), oil on card, 18 x 14.5 cm  SOLD
Painted at the the back of São José- the roads rise and fall and curve  beautifully, magical in the sun.
A delight of Brazil are the kites which children make and fly- the telegraph lines sometimes festooned with their tail ribbons. Sometimes this causes fatalities, and sometimes the authorities attempt to discourage kite-flying near the lines by putting up notices and distributing leaflets.
