hard to keep everything organized.
'A Serra' Exhibition
I just finished making a portfolio about my latest exhibition called "A Serra", which I did together with my wife Juliana about our life outside the big city and closer to nature (although the city is not far away). The exhibition is taking place in the Serra da Cantareira State Park, in a museum which has an incredible view of the city of São Paulo, seen from above.
The exhibit features paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor, drawings, photos, cloths, trees planted by us and land art, compositions with objects we collected from nature.
In the portfolio, besides the pictures of the exhibit and some of the ones we showcased, I also put pictures I took in the park during the period of exhibition.
Here's the address of the portfolio: expo-serra.daportfolio.com

Exhibit Porfolio: Natura NaturansI just made a portfolio about my exhibition using deviantart's new system, check it out:
Fiz um portfolio sobre a minha exposição Natura Naturans:
Exposicao - ExhibitionI'm making an exhibition in a week. It's called Natura Naturans (the name was inspired by the philosophy of Baruch Espinosa). The exhibition will be in a place called IQ Art Gallery | Chakras, in São Paulo, Brazil. If you happen to be in São Paulo, you are invited. There will be a vernissage on July 14th. You can see the invitation (in portuguese) here: http://tamino.deviantart.com/art/Natura-Naturans-128529230
I'll talk and post more about the exhibition soon.

Serra / WoodsEstou começando a escrever sobre minhas experiências aqui onde estou morando, na Serra.

I'm starting to write about my experiences here where I'm living, in the woods.
I've only made a version in portuguese so far, so if you can't speak portuguese you can still see the pictures and try to make something out of it if you want... maybe I'll do a version in english someday.

Blue X Red PuppetsIt's amazing how manicheist and dichotomous the American society is.
I don't know if people actually gave thought to the fact that the only two political parties available are RED and BLUE, while the RED party is headed towards warfare and the BLUE one is sponsoring peace. The Blue guy is going to help Africa, stop the war, in other words: do everything the world is expecting of the USA, especially after so much war. The Red guy is way too old, endorses the war and has a vice that is the laughing stock of the moment.
So, do you want the puppet on the left, or the puppet on the right? The peace guy or the war guy?
They don't really give that many options, do they?
It seems to work in cycles, if you know what I mean. After a few years of "peace" with the Blue guy, the public opinion will be ready for some more Red action.
Just two sides of the same old coin... "Democracy"
Recycle Your Organic WasteHave you ever wondered where does you trash go? If you ever thought about that then it's time to start thinking about what you can do to minimize your waste.
Along with other recyclable materials like paper, metals and plastics, organic leftovers are also extremely hazardous to the environment when put together in large amounts.
Each country and city handles their trash differently, of course there are places where the government does a good job, but even so, there is still a lot of handling, transportation and pollution that could be minimized.
Yes, even recycling pollutes a lot.
If you have a garden or any patch of land you can create a place where you can compost these leftovers. As a result you will minimize the impact you have on the ecosystem and on the city's garbage handling. The resulting compost is a great fertilizer that can be used to nurture any plants you might have on your garden, being a good alternative for chemical fertilizers.
Things that might be suitabl
QuestioningsI wanted to know what the people around here do for a living. Do you make money with your art?
One of the main reasons I became a painter was as my profession, I did make enough money in the last 5 years to live well and support myself, without much direct economic help from my parents. It wasn´t so hard because my father taught me a lot about painting and my mother helped me to sell because she already had a lot of experience selling my father´s work.
But my parents separated some years ago, the situation still didn´t settle, and they don´t help me much anymore. It turns out the family unit did have something to do with my stability and now it´s gone. I know what I have to do now, I have to develop my career on my own, but the thing is I don´t really like the art world, the galleries and market. So I´d have to sell myself to sell my work.
In fact, I´m running away from all of it, I don´t really want a career, to be a famous artist or anythi
away from herehello.
i´ve been away for a while. not from myself, but from here.
i´m not living in são paulo anymore. i´m not even in a city anymore.
it´s not far, but it´s a much calmer and beautiful place.
since i got here i studied a lot about astronomy (i have a 200mm reflector telescope!), plants (i can eat a lot of things from my garden now, and have some beautiful flowers), ornithology (i have identified 55 species of birds so far) and lots of other things.
now, about the paintings... i´ve been painting more in the last couple of months.. now that i´m settled i have more time to paint, which i didn´t have in the beginning.
i´ll post more of them soon.
i am also organizing my gallery, creating folders, etc...
that´s it for now.
GrandfatherMy Grandfather has just turned 80 years old.
He is a very important Brazilian artist, and was a militant communist.
He is a very skilled painter and engraver.
This is him today:
I just received lots of used and old art materials from him, as I did receive from my father at various occasions before. It´s very good to make the most of their leftovers, learn about new materials and techniques. Put everything into order, clean it and take care of it. It really makes me feel the meaning of the word "legacy".
His name is Mario Gruber by the way.
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
