Gotta travel on, never comin’ back
Oh, oh got a one way ticket to the blues”
We used to say living as a God in France. I think it is fair to say that in Portugal you can live as a God and Emperor, especially in the North of Portugal. The weather is great with a perfect balance between the sun and rainfall that guarantees beautiful nature and vegetation. The variety of food is great with nice and fresh fruits and vegetables.
But the outstanding craftmanship makes Portugal really different from the other European countries. Look at this beautiful closet which was made from old doors in the living room. Is not it simply beautiful?
Did you read Wallace J. Nichols book BLUE MIND, the surprising science showing how being near, in, on, or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected and better at what you do? Do you know that the Ancora Artist Residence is located at 5 minutes distance from both the Ocean and the Ancora and Minho rivers? It is also close to the Surftree project in Afife, where you can discover your passion or develop your talent for surfing. Embrace blue and a blue mind.
Always nice to have different type of paintings together on a piece of wall where they will be looked at when cooking. There is a painting of a very young Russian student (many years ago), a landscape bought long time ago, some old drawings from ancient buildings in The Hague.
