Girl and a kite

Hi everybody,

It’s been a long time since I post some art work on my portfolio. My life change a lot from 2018 to 2019. I was living in Madrid. Now I’m retired and came back to my hometown – São Paulo/Brazil.

That piece of work was the last one I painted in Madrid, but my moving back home was so long and stressful, that only last April I could finally unpack my stuff and move to a restored apartment.

It’s part of the Girls series and I had a lot of happy time working on it. I still didn’t finish that series so, be patient and wait for some more, if you like it.

A happy day to everyone!!

San Lorenzo de El Escorial. I’ve been there many times, but last time was special because I was with my husband Luis, my son Gabriel and his girlfriend Juliete. Also known as El Escorial de Arriba is a town and municipality in the Community of Madrid, Spain, located to the northwest of the region in the southeastern side of the Sierra de Guadarrama, at the foot of Mount Abantos and Las Machotas, 47 kilometres (29 mi) from Madrid. It is head of the same name judicial party. The settlement is popularly called El Escorial de Arriba, to differentiate it from the neighbouring village of El Escorial, also known as El Escorial de Abajo.

The Monastery of El Escorial is the most prominent building in the town and is one of the main Spanish Renaissance monuments. Especially remarkable is the Royal Library, inside the Monastery.

The monastery and its historic surroundings were declared a World Heritage Site UNESCO on November 2, 1984, under the name of “El Escorial, monastery and site”.

The site also enjoys protection on Spain’s heritage register; since June 21, 2006, it has been protected by the Community of Madrid as a Property of Cultural Interest.

San Lorenzo de El Escorial is located on the southern slopes of the Mount Abantos (elevation 1753 m). The average altitude of the municipality is 1,032 metres (3,386 ft), and most of the urban area is above 1,000 metres (3,300 ft). The hamlet initially sprang up around Monastery of El Escorial, gradually extending up the mountain. In the 20th and 21st centuries, the town underwent a strong urban expansion, particularly towards the southeastern side of Mount Abantos.

Street vendor in Paraguay

The portraits of street vendor boys from Paraguay represent the lost childhood, the anguish of living in the streets, never knowing when their next meal might be. Their features are nonetheless simple, despite the everyday hardness. They look intriguing, sweet but also rebellious.
