UDESC Exhibition

 *


Letter from UDESC




The letter announces that I will be exhibiting at UDESC, the state university of Santa Catarina. The university will give me 2500R$ towards the exhibition, which will run from March 3 until 4 April, 2020.

 I will show pictures from Santa Catarina. I might drive down to Imbituba to stay there one night so I can do some work there. It should be good for painting. I can exhibit about a dozen paintings if they of the larger size.

Ecuador or Peru in January?

*


Northern Peru, taken from The Rough Guide
The distance from Cajamarca to Chachapoyas is 330 km and takes just over eight hours by car and about eleven by bus. The journey ca be broken at Leymebamba where there is an ethnographic museum. 





The situation in Ecuador is quite alarming with roads blocked and unrest. There have been five deaths. It should surely return to normal by January, in which case I am ready to go for a good long trip there.

But if not, it will be back to Peru, this time to the north- a trip to include Cajamarca, Chachapoyas, Tarapoto, Chiclayo, Moyobamba and maybe Tarapoto.

Spain, National parks, Constantina

*


Southerns Spain



The idea is to go to one of these Spanish National Parks in September (Anjudar, Hornachuelos), thus breaking up a Scottish trip with guaranteed good landscape painting.

Probably the best thing is to fly to Seville or Malaga, find a way to one of these parks and a place to stay, do some painting, then proceed to Aberdeen. Then return to Brazil via Spain. That keeps the flying time down.






Perhaps going to Seville then to Hornachuelos is the easier option.





Constantina seems promising, nestled in the mountains.
