This was a 2 hand drawing by me and my son in the children's day, first of June. He made the colour dashes and I did his portrait.

Japanese Garden

I wasn't there (unfortunally), I made it from a photograph... its somewhere near NY! I just love Japanese Gardens, the quiet peace you get from just looking at them is...

City 1

Scenes from Lisbon, two different vehicles that live in our city, in different places, for different reasons!

Beato / Poço do Bispo

I made this while waiting at the IPO in Poço do Bispo to check out my car. People waiting in the shadow and nice buildings of the area but in bad conditions unfurtunally...

Faces 1

This one is the first drawing of a new moleskine I started last month, lets see how it goes! These faces I made from a magazine, at nigth, in my parents' house. I didn't want them to look similar to their owners, just tried to cath some of the emotion behind the faces...

Expo Surrealismo Português

These drawings were made in the Exposition of Portuguese Surrealism that took place in Coordoaria last month. I particulary liked this Cezariny sculpture, it looked like a fish, in a boat, mixed with a mens' face...

Manta Rota

This was made in the beach of Manta Rota, in Praia da Lota, witch is a very good one to go for a walk in the Winter or Spring. It's a really quiet and simple place...

Praia Verde

This is just a quick scketh of one of my favorite places in the Algarve, Praia Verde, between Altura and Monte Gordo. This one was made in the last day of March and unfortunally was very cold...

This is a quick drawing of the beach "Ferreirinha" near the city of Setúbal. I was seating in a simple beach bar where the tables and chairs are on the sand, just perfect for a spring afternoon looking at the montains protecting the beach...

My mother and the beach house

This is my mother sleeping on the sofa although she looks more like Lili Caneças than with herself :)) And after, a view of a living room in the Algarve.

A view of the sea from a park in Ericeira, one of my favorite places to spend a Sundays' afternoon.

In Monsanto, we remember the old plain where kids went in and out and everything was very old... Now, there's a big new park with lots of different things to do! I liked these indian tents, they were different than the usual...

Expo - zona norte

Probably the best thing Expo 98 left us were the gardens of the north side of it, the "Parque do Tejo". Its a great place to walk, do sports, walk the dog, take the kids, or simply to draw and enjoy the peace of the river...

Inatel de Alvalade

In the midlle of Alvalades' buildings there's a great place to do sports, walk among the green trees or take the kids to play. This last option is what I often do, taking my 2 year old to the sand park where he as lots of fun... It's a good option to run away from the city and still be in the midlle of it!

Near the Museum of Electricity, where the boats go to the southern coast of Lisbon, is a good place to just stare and enjoy the view and the quiet moments.

My old cat...

The cats always choose the best places to lie down and enjoy the pleasure of "doing nothing". We shoul learn from them...

Made some weeks ago after having lunch in Belém, one of the more turistic places in Lisbon but always good to return to and breath some of the lisbon perfume... Here we can see the CCB behind the main fountain of the gardens...

Room for a boy...

This one I made while thinking how to adapt this space for a bedroom for my 2 year old boy! The perspective is kind a crazy but I wanted to remember the colors... This is a house near the beach, in Charneca da Caparica, witch we decorated with happy colors!

Watercolor 6

The view of Praia da Poça in Estoril, from the place where I park the car when I go there for a walk along the seaside. There are 3 benches whit a nice view where two old ladies were with a black umbrela... for the sun!

A sketch of Carlota, princess of Monaco... a quick one and unfineshed, sometimes its better to just stop!

Another wish for the summer to come, I'm tired of the dark colors I use when its cold... This is from a magazine.

Expo - zona sul

Another lisbon drawing, this time in the south area of "Parque das Nações". Its a good place to relax and see the river...

Watercolor 2

This one I made from a picture of the Queen of Jordania, Rania, when she visited Portugal this month. She's not so pretty here but she's different from the usual...

Watercolor 1

Made from an image I saw in a fashion magazine. Summer is comming!

Madredeus, a room with a view

One of the many things I love the place I live in, is the view from my room. I can see the orange roofs of Lisbon all the way to the Tejo river, however in this drawing, I could only see my neighbours' house that is under construction, making lots of noise... nothing is perfect!!!

Carcavelos' Beach

While I was waiting for a friend to have lunch in a nice italian restaurant at Carcavelos' beach. This is the view from my car. This beach is a very special place for me, it's one of the places in Cascais where I spent my younger days...

Benjamin Button...

What I liked the most in the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" was the final sentence, that said something like: in life each person does what he/she knows or has to do, weather it's dancing, travelling, being a mother, tell stories, drawing, what ever...

Quinta da Alagoa

In the midlle of the lake, a curious building, for the ducks...

Quinta da Alagoa

In Carcavelos, the perfect spot to go for a walk with the kids... This is by the lake, where some white blocks make the way to the water.
