Las Negras this morning

The fine weather of the “little summer of St. Michael” continues. Above is a photo of Las Negras taken early today.

Every morning this week we have encountered this little group of Dutch sculptors modelling clay.

They are staying in a charming group of rustic apartments at the end of the beach. These courses seem to be offered every May and September.

The boats and cottages by the sea always make a good picture during the early hours.

Walking back home I took this photo looking back to the sea into the sunlight through palms and olives. You can see from the scorched grass we are still waiting for rain.

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.

    In the US we call beautiful September weather, an Indian Summer. We are experiencing just that in the northeastern part of the country. Just like you are. Your pics are wonderful! Love your posts!
