Cinelandia, a square downtown Rio , is a never ending inspiration. Leafy trees, people milling around and the most beautiful architetonic group of the city!

Carioca Impressions - Solo Show

Solo Show at Castelinho 38 Gallery

Well, the show came to its end and I´ve been working sending paintings to their new homes. Some happy collectors had already received theirs and others will get them soon. It was a great experience to meet old friends, get to know several silent blog followers and be able to join some names to real faces.
It is amazing the feeling of connection brought by art which links people who otherwise would be perfect strangers.

Castelinho38 gallery was a perfect place for this exhibition, a beautiful archtecture in a quiet street of Santa Teresa and a very friendly staff

Worldwide Paint Out 2010

This year we headed downtown and gathered in Cinelândia, a beautiful square surrounded by important buildings such as Fine Arts National Museum, Municipal Theatre and National Library. We were blessed with a sunny morning and a nice late winter temperature .Coordinated by IPAP(International Plein Air Painters) this event hapens every year.
It turns out that the paint out is also a special day here, when we meet friends and make new ones. This year we had the presence of a virtual friend from São Paulo (400 km from Rio) and from Campos dos Goytacazes (more than 300km far from Rio)

The paintings will be in a show at Brazilian Fine Arts Society.
