A blog , about my daily life and happenings on on my 5 hectare olive farm, village life and beyond. I live In the southern province of Alentejo, the largest province in Portugal.
My life is shared with my 4 lovely dogs & 4 loving horses
I enjoy gardening..
My favorite flower is the rose.
Country life and all its seasons make me happy.
Spending time when possible with my 4 children and 6 grandchildren.
I finished this painting last week. Just a simple peasant girl in the filds. I suppose like every artist, we aspire to do better. Looking at it now, i know that i can .. but i really enjoyed painting her.
Somewhere in my dreams i see myself walking through filds of roses. Silly sentimentality. My father always said. "If we dont dream" what has life to offer us. Its wonderful to just wonder off to far distance places in our dreams. To capture it on canvas is a little more difficult.
