Views of Confinement XVIII

confinement 15 2blog

In the backyard jungle, an orange tree defies the avocado tree. Each one claims the title for the densest canopy. The metal stairs could be a scaffold for observing wild life or the structure holding a Saturn V rocket ship. It is a modest presque eiffelean gem that had to be fully painted twice since we live here. Serves the apartments, holding banal up and downs of service, indifferent to its own elegance.

drawing inside a doc

2013B 1

A few months ago I was invited by my friend Graça Castanheira to be part of a documentary film for RTP2 she was directing about Casa da Cerca park/garden in Almada where people go to draw in the first weekend of each month. These are the drawings made in that day.

2014

At my age, rather than making lists of things to do differently in the new year, I wish to continue doing things much the same I did the previous year (namely travelling and drawing). Nevertheless, I wish everyone a better year according to their wishes, except for serial killers, paedophiles, drug dealers, corrupt politicians, heartless corporate executives and all other humans that are planning cruelties for 2014.
