I am retired and now have the time to spend on my true love of painting and photography. I am lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of Wales close to the Brecon Beacons.My parents were Spanish and because of that many a holiday was spent in Spain,and they always encouraged me to travel.Granada, Seville Cordoba,Barcelona,Madrid cities full of art and places to see.Then other years,the Greek Islands,mainly because my dad who had joined the British army and was living in a cave for a year, on the isle of Crete when the British troops got cut off,told me how beautiful the Island was.Turkey,Italy Portugal quickly followed then Australia. Every country I visited had so much to see and admire, I never stopped taking photos with paintings in mind.
