Hats at La Paloma

A study in elegance

Last week we posted a blog about the end-of-craft-course evening at Cortijo La Paloma, Las Negras, but we arrived a little late and missed the parade of hats which the guests had made. During the last week, a fresh group of holiday-makers from Holland stayed here and yesterday evening we arrived in time to see the hats.

Some of the women wore different outfits to go with each hat they had made. Above is Helena who chose this lovely dress to go with her red hat.

After food and wine, we were entertained by the local blues duo, Jan and Yvette “Level Eye”. Although they live here, they are also from Holland. A blurred photo in the dark without flash but it recreates the mood.

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.

    • Hi Yvon
      I have added a link to your web site at the bottom of both the blogs. Sorry, but I thought the cortijolapaloma web site was yours.
      I hope your clients like your photos.
      Best wishes, Digby
