From Aririu, near Palhoça, oil on card, 12 x 14 cm




Misty weather.

 I feel that I have been repeating myself a little with recent landscapes and I am glad to be traveling to New York on Saturday, and Miami in October. 

Find me there if you want to share a pizza.

Part of an ongoing series of still-lives in which I try to explore spacial representation more and play around with qualities of paint.

São João Batista

 São João Batista, road out of town, 15 x 12 cm






São João Batista, early evening, oil on card, 14 x 12.5 cm




These are the product of a drive from Florianopolis via Rancho Queimado to São João Batista.

It is not the most charming of towns that I have been to: the locals seemed surly and there was nowhere pleasant to eat.

 Perhaps I should have stayed in nearby Novo Trento, the Italian colonized city, where I might have least got some decent pizza (along with a sizable dose of Catholicism) but I think that generally as one approaches Joinville the landscape becomes increasingly suburban and less dramatic and the people duller.
