Exhibition in Foz do Arelho

In the painting bellow, for the first time, I included free pubicity. Two outdoors on the side of the road, one for Leonard Cohen´s CD "Dear Heather", which was out just before I started this painting, and the other for Aloe vera. The idea for smoking Aloe vera came to me after seeing all lots of different products for sale containing the miraculous plant: yougurts, biscuits, shampoos, soaps, toothpaste, toilet paper, shoe polish, (actualy I never saw the last two). Probabily smoking it will also be good for your health...
The two huge cranes forming a door over a highway to the entrance of a city would be a fitting public sculpture to the construction empresarios that, toghether with corrupt local politicians, have been calling the shots in most cities around Portugal.

Restaurante/galleria Adamastor, Foz do Arelho.

Wild mushrooms, a cat and a dog.

I went to pick up mushrooms in the mountains. I filled a basket with tasty Boletus that I cooked for dinner, froze some and dried some to store.

For the fist time I saw a cat sleeping on top of a sleeping dog, and it looks like a fine arrangement: the dog gets a warm blanket, and the cat gets a heaten mat.
