Mijas Hills

Image
Title:Mijas Hills


Description: I painted this watercolour painting en plein air in Mijas Pueblo looking towards the surrounding hill side with the sheep and goats grazing, the olive trees in the background and a couple of palm trees in the fore ground. The view is at a height from the ground looking through a wroth iron decoration around a window frame. It was too hot to sit in the direct sunshine.

I believe that I caught the ambiance in a simple watercolour painting.
Medium: Mixed Media - Watercolour And Pencil On Paper

Artist:     Roger Cummiskey - ArtRoger.

Original:      €81.00 Dimensions: 32.000 x 45.000 x 0.010 cm.

He opened an Art Exhibition that I participated in representing Ireland at the UN HQ in NYC, "Our World in the year 2000."

Roddy Doyle - Aretha Franklin 16.08.2018


-See Aretha Franklin died.
-All those songs. Jesus, man, she was amazin’.
-Yeah, yeah. I met the missis when there was an Aretha song playin’ – did I ever tell yeh?
-Hang on now – fuck off. Every time a singer dies you tell me you met your missis at one of their gigs or a dance.
-Well, I did.
-I’m not listenin’. 
-You don’t really know me wife. But I’ll tell yeh. You’re never goin’ to woo a woman like tha’ in one three-minute song.
-Woo?
-Yeah – fuckin’ woo. It was never love at first sight, like. It was more like love at twenty-seven fuckin’ sights. I had to win her over. An’ that’s where Aretha comes in.
-Okay = wha’ happened?
-There was a club, a room over a pub, like – just off Capel Street. I can’t remember wha’ it was called. But they only played soul.
-Sounds good.
-It was. An’ anyway, they’re only playin’ Aretha songs this nigh’ an’ I boogie up to the missis, an’ I sing, ‘R.E.S.P.E.C.T.’. Right in front of her, like.
-Wha’ did she do?
-…
