Today's selection from the archives comes from Rio Grande do Sul, Chile, Santa Catarina and Bolivia.

It's funny how one's perceptions change about one's own work over time 

When I had just painted the pictures above and below I feltthat I'd made a real breakthrough- in the first case towards a boldly Japanese, graphic style, and in the second, to a method of description with flattened perspectives and simplified profiles, not unlike the work of Herge, in Tintin books. With hindsight, however, neither seem as radical to me now as they then appeared; either because I have now absorbed their lessons, or because they weren't really as dramatically new as I had then imagined., anyway.
