Paintings in El Brindi

Paintings at El Brindi Negro

Yesterday evening commenced an exhibition of my paintings in El Brindi Negro.

La Celista and portrait of Julio and Miguel

There were few people about because the weather yesterday was not good but the heavy rains in Andalucia did not effect the Cabo de Gata. Digby had a very wet trip to Granada though. He said there was heavy rain all day in the City and he got soaked to the skin but despite the rain the drive up and down the motorway, 400km there and back, was uneventful.

Nudes not on la carta

Although there were very few people at El Brindi, Julio the owner said he had sold three paintings which is promising.

Pastel landscapes by the piano

Please go and have a look. El Brindi Negro is open from 1300-1700 and 2100 until late.


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.
