A Sunday in October

Wood and cane washed ashore

Another beautiful autumn day so we headed for the beach, El Playazo. Here again cane and wood from the floods at Vera littered the shoreline but the clear up has began. Yesterday evening we noted that a large skip was parked by the beach at Las Negras and today we filled the car with driftwood for our winter fires.

Colours of rocks and sea

The sea was crystal clear and the colours of rocks and water sparkled in the sunlight.

Rock pools

I like this photo of the rocks and pools with the swimmer in the top corner.

Sunset from home

The wispy clouds induced a beautiful sunset this evening. This is a phot of it from our home.

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 in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. 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 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.
