Old buildings at Fernan Perez

While we are thinking of Federico Garcia Lorca this week I thought I would mention that one of his most famous plays, Blood Wedding, was based on a report he read in a newspaper about a murder of vengeance, resulting in the death of the two men involved, that had taken place in Nijar. The bride who was the subject of this drama lived in the village of Fernan Perez, which is the nearest one to our new  home.

Busy beach at Las Negras

A quieter spot

Digby drove down to Almeria this morning with a car full of books, china and other items for our new house and came back with these photos of Fernan Perez as well as some of the beach at Las Negras which, as one would expect in August, was crowded. Below is a photo of our new home.

It you click on the images they will enlarge.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
