Convento dos Capuchos - Sintra - Portugal by 

Oil on canvas -
Brief History about the location – the Capuchin Convent of the Serra de Sintra, whose original name is the Convent of the Holy Cross was founded by King Alvaro de Castro, son of the Viceroy of India D. John de Castro, in the year 1560. Its history is shrouded in mystery that dates back at least to the time when D. John de Castro decided its construction. Legend has it that the noble will have been lost in the Sierra during a pursuit of a deer, and fell asleep under a rock tired. In dreams you will have been informed there is a need to erect a Christian church.

Breve História sobre o local – O Convento dos Capuchos da Serra de Sintra, cujo nome original é Convento da Santa Cruz, foi fundado por D. Álvaro de Castro, filho do vice-rei da Índia D. João de Castro, no ano de 1560. A sua história encontra-se envolta em mistério, que remonta pelo menos ao momento em que D. João de Castro decidiu a sua construção. Diz a lenda que o nobre se terá perdido na Serra durante uma perseguição a um veado, e que debaixo de um penedo adormeceu cansado. Em sonhos ter-lhe-á sido comunicada a necessidade de ali se erigir um templo cristão.

I started painting a few years, I found a way to communicate with other human beings, to share my work means to show the stories that each frame has to tell. Painting is very difficult, but when we do a painting to the liking of many people, we are guaranteed to leave a job for others to admire for a long time, that is the real wealth of a painting.

    Parabéns Pedro! Está o máximo… Como a pintura “Qui tóllis peccáta múndi”, ficou pronta no domingo de Carnaval, pode até servir de reflexão para a entrada na Quaresma: “Que tirais o pecado do Mundo…”
