Sunshine returns to Las Negras

The beach at Las Negras

After some grey and gloomy days sunshine returned to the Cabo de Gata this morning. While Margaret was having her her cut by the village hairdresser in Las Negras I strolled along the beach and took a few photos in the clear November light.

Messing about in boats

It was good to see some people around messing about in boats or fishing from the beach.

We are making progress with our building project. The architect’s plans have been stamped by the College of Architects in Almeria and are now in the Town Hall at Nijar waiting for the building licence, a geological survey of the plot which is essential for the house’s guarantee has been done and after scrutinising many quotations we are on the verge of deciding on a builder.


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.
