A nap for two / Uma sesta para dois


Maybe it was the Autumn sun, still vibrant and inviting, it might have been the lunch... Or maybe a daily habit whenever the weather helps, because this corner near the entrance seems "formatted" for a good nap. To speak the truth, in every village I've been I do not remember having found similar scene, as all people and even animals always seem to be doing something: It's just a typical romantic view, distorted by the imagination of a city dweller...
Talvez fosse do sol de Outono, ainda pujante e convidativo, talvez fosse do almoço... Talvez seja um hábito diário sempre que o tempo ajuda, porque o recanto à porta de casa já parece "formatado" para uma boa sesta. Para dizer a verdade, em todas as aldeias onde estive não me recordo de ter encontrado cena semelhante, uma vez que todas as pessoas e mesmo os animais parecem estar sempre entregues a uma qualquer ocupação: É apenas a típica visão romântica e distorcida pela imaginação de um "citadino".

Contemplar estas pinturas do amigo Paulo Mendes e' melhor do que qualquer anti-depressante. Gostei das aboboras que parecem estar a conversar com a sardinheira no vaso, enquanto os outros dois caracters ressonam. Bom Domingo.

Thank you! So happy you enjoyed your visit, Claudia. I must confess having a crush for the combination of old whitewhash and teal doors and windows :))
I just visited your blog and loved your painting style and your cheerful colors. Will be back again.
