Huevos: the gift of eggs


We were for a walk in the ‘campo’ on Sunday when, just passing a small holding full of sheep, lambs and chickens, I saw a man waving frantically to me. It was Antonio, a.k.a. ‘pastor’ from the cafe in the plaza.

Anyway, he gave us some eggs, complete with grass and chicken-s**t. I guess we are goods friends now! I didn’t like to tell him I am a vegan and don’t eat eggs (my husband will eat them though). I am sure he would think I was crazy to draw them rather than eat them! 🙂


The ubiquitous green bottles of Andalucia

Green bottle

Anybody who lives in Andalucia, and maybe Spain,will have seen these green bottles. We inherited this one when we bought the house and, like most people, used it to collect corks (mostly cava corks…) so it is, as far as I am concerned anyway, a sign of a good life lived 🙂 It was not easy to draw, all those corks(!) and 2 light sources…..but I hope have captured it somewhat.
