Joaquim | An amazing person

January 9, 2016

 

Last thursday, January 7, my father told me that he heard that someone painted oils at Santo Antão do Tojal, Loures. That was a surprise for me.

 

In the afternoon of that day, we went to Santo Antão do Tojal looking for the oil painter, Joaquim.

 

After asking at a local coffee shop for directions to Joaquim´s home or atelier, we finally managed to arrive at his place and met the painter.

 

We were warmly welcomed but unfortunatelly Joaquim told us that he gave up painting a while ago. Nevertheless, he showed us some of his paintings. I was impressed.

 

Joaquim, 81 years old, began his professional life as a mason, he was also a shoemaker, then a postman, after that a watch repairer, an insurance agent and finally an oil painter. It was a true life momentum talking to a person such as Joaquim.

 

I haven't his photo because I did not dare to ask him to take one.

But just take a look at some of his oil paintings. And none of these paintings are for sale.

 

 

 

 

Joaquim | Uma pessoa extraordinária

 

Na passada quinta feira, 7 de Janeiro, o meu pai disse-me que tinha ouvido que alguém pintava óleos em Santo Antão do Tojal, Loures.

 

Na tarde desse dia, fomos a Santo Antão do Tojal à procura do pintor a óleo, Joaquim.

 

Após pedir indicações para chegar à casa ou atelier de Joaquim num café local , conseguimos finalmente chegar à sua casa e conhecer o pintor.

 

Fomos bem recebidos mas infelizmente Joaquim disse-nos que tinha deixado de pintar há algum tempo atrás. No entanto, mostrou-nos alguns dos seus óleos. Eu fiquei impressionada.

 

Joaquim, 81 anos de idade, começou a sua vida profissional como pedreiro, foi também sapateiro, depois carteiro, e ainda relojoeiro, agente de seguros e finalmente pintor a óleo. Foi um verdadeiro momentum de vida conversar com uma pessoa como Joaquim.

 

Não tenho uma foto dele porque não tive coragem de lhe pedir para lhe tirar uma.

Mas vejam algumas das suas pinturas a óleo. E nenhuma destas pinturas são para venda.
