Ivan at Rios

from 99.00

Rio is our next door neighbour. A man that completely refuses to understand any Bulgarian that I try to use to converse with him..even when I know for sure that I’m making sense. He lives alone so takes great delight in shouting at his chickens every morning. I thought I would try and soften him up with a gift of a portrait . He was dancing around the square with it showing everyone at the annual village festival. He still refuses to understand me though.

John paints surroundings here in Boynovtsi, Bulgaria. There is so much to paint here that sometimes I don’t know what to do next. We have so many fabulous barns here, all in a various states of disrepair , we have trees and rivers , we have donkeys and carts, we have proper seasons (!).. and then there’s some characters amongst the locals who like to have their portrait painted
