The girl from the tele, books from the ceiling and music in the air



The girl from the tele

We went for a drink and tapas at El Brindi Negro, Las Negras last night and noticed that Reyes Pandora had been in and changed the decor. The flowery summer theme had gone and been replaced with a menage of objects, with a books and music theme, all hanging off the ceiling. The most striking installation is the girl from the tele.


Hanging above the bar

Above the bar she has hung a reading arm, books and letters.


Hanging above the customers

A clever and original decorative installation

This must have been a difficult installation but she says she was helped by Sergio from Bar Black who is a carpenter.

The 4 wines from Alboloduy

Miguel, the owner, informed us that next Friday, 21st October, from 20.00 there will be a special wine night at El Brindi Negro to sample the vintages from the Bodegas of Alboloduy.

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.
