Sketching Boats

Now that summer is really here, the way to the waterfront with my pochade box is a natural choice. I had the right time to sketch these boats till the owner of one of them arrived to take it to the sea.
He is a very kind gentleman who even offered to take my picture!

Facebook page or Blog?

The last tram - Sandra Nunes oil on canvas 22 x 27 cm

This blog has emerged as an alternative and / or attachment to my official page on the web. At that time it was seen as a more dynamic way to keep the page updated, posting works and events as they were created.
With the growth of social networks and the possibility of creating professional pages, the dynamics of the blog has given way to the almost instantaneous effect of the new media, reaching a wider audience more quickly.

Well, why these considerations on carnival?

It turns out that, as it can be noticed here on the right side where it says "Facebook Page" there´s a message that leads nowhere. My professional page on facebook has just vanished into cyberspace!
Do not ask me why because I have no answer, I apologize for my absence to friends who followed the latest posts there and meanwhile I´ll try to update here.

And speaking of absence, I´m posting this painting as a tribute to the tram driver who used to give a quick stop to watch me
painting in Santa Teresa (Mr Nelson) and the missing cable car on this Carnival.

An update on this post: After some emails sent ...My facebook page is up again! Thanks facebook team! check it at:
