Getting ready for Christmas - Rua Visconde de Ouro Preto
Monday, December 16, 2013
Unlike the Northern hemisphere, our Christmas is not white. At this time of the year Flamboyants are in full blossom contrasting with the luxuriant green of the mango trees, and other species of our flora all over city streets. Summer announces its arrival with strong and brief thunderstorms that washes the vegetation turning it greener.
This bucolic street is naturally getting ready for the party, under a blossoming jasmine tree, I opened my easel inspired by the light bathing the last old houses in the district of Botafogo.

Thanks to a neighbor who took some pictures of me from his window since my arrival . Later on I learned he was a friend of mine! We never know who is watching us...

Igreja da Candelária
Thursday, December 5, 2013
Urban scenes portray a special poetry. I love to watch the movement of people downtown on a weekday, it is difficult to find a spot to open the easel and do not turn into a kind of an "information bureau", though.
Oh well, that´s part of the game...

Rua Senador Vergueiro
Saturday, November 30, 2013
Sometimes we travel far away in search of inspiration when if we look around us we find more than we are looking for. I've been in love with this corner for a long time, it is on my way to the studio. This day the morning light was screaming and I had to paint it!

Worldwide Paint Out
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
A special day!
Once more we were blessed with a bright sunny morning. It is late winter, Carioca style!
At first , the choice of Leme Beach as a location for this year´s Paint Out seemed at least a crazy idea!
Sunny Sunday morning at any beach in Rio is really crowded.
But it was wonderful! Artists and bathers mixed beautifully: easels, canvases, colorful beach parasols, a real feast for the eyes!
Professional artists,students, amateurs, from Rio de Janeiro and neighbor cities joined us this year to celebrate plein air painting. Some of them traveled from even more distant places like Brasilia (more than 1000 km far fom Rio) and Belo Horizonte ( more than 350 km).
