It may seem as though my holiday was all to do with art but I was just lucky enough to be going to places that had some really interesting work to look at.
Casapueblo is a museum studio of the artist Carlos Paez Vilaro. This is the Carlos with his
friend Picasso in 1957.

This is the Casapueblo museum and studio that Carlos built by hand with the help of local fishermen. It sits on the cliff side at Punta Ballena in Uruguay.

These are the most recent paintings by Carlos. He is now 89 and still paints at Casapueblo, he was actually there when we went but unfortunately we did not see him.

La Boca

This colourful street in Buenos Aires was in the La Boca area. I had read about this area and really wanted to visit it. There was a lovely atmosphere with street artist showing off their tango skills, outdoor restaurants with live music and tourist type shops. La Boca is also known as the artist area and there was some really interesting work to be seen. We liked quite a lot of the work and decided to buy one of the limited dry point prints shown below.
