Rodrig.

I went fishing, and caught exactly zero fish - next time I'm bringing the spear!  It was a good time though, it always is with Becca!  We also went to Goodwill.  I had never been before, and my first and only purchase was a little painting by someone named Rodrig.  I think it's a painting of London... can anyone second that?  :-)

*Update (February 13, 2015) 

Also, for those of you who are interested in seeing more of Rodrig's work, Ruben Hordnes has shared the beautiful picture below.  His grandfather purchased it in London during the 60's or 70's!  It is gorgeous!  Thank you so much for sharing, Ruben!

  1. We've never been lucky in our attempts at fishing! A spear is probably a good idea! We love the monochrome painting you bought! We would have no idea if it was London :)

  6. That very well could be the London bridge in the photo...but the top of the bridge looks very Russian! Then again maybe it's Venice cause there are stairways to a house off the water?? Maybe it's all of them?!? Haha! Either way it's cool!

    1. Hi Ruben! I haven't been able to find anything else out about the artist or the painting unfortunately! I'm sure Rodrig is eating some really good European food somewhere, laughing because they are using a pseduo name and all these people are trying to track him or her down. I'll for sure post anything I find! I hope you have a great day!

  8. It is of Tower Bridge in London. Closest bridge to the Tower of London. London Bridge is the next bridge upstream on the Thames River and is plain by comparison.

    4. Hi Lianne!

      Thanks so much for your comment! I don't have really any info on the artist. I'm finding that most of his work appears to be of London, and I think he could be a street artist there. I love his work! I'm so sorry I don't have any more info at this time - if I am able to track down any info - I will for sure post it here! xo

  11. Hi all. I grew up with a Rodrig oil painting of London. Like Ruben, my grandparent bought it in London in the 1960/1970s (I am pretty sure it was the 70s). My grandmother didn't have a lot of money so it simply rested on the floor, propped up against a chair. Since she passed in 2007, I have inherited it and my partner had it framed for me. I have taken a photo of it to show you all. It is of the River Thames at dusk. Kind regards, Saffron Swansborough, England.

  14. Hi all
    I've just bought a painting by rodrig of St Paul's cathedral in the snow. It's so atmospherits almost magical. It's 30x20 inches and the oil is very thick giving a 3D effect. If anyone would like to see a photo let me know. Cheers, j

  15. Hi All, I have had a beautiful painting by Rodrig in my possession thankfully. It is a scene of London too, a scene along the Thames, very colourful and 3D. I love it! Don't think I could ever part with it, be interested to see more of his works, any history anyone has on the artist too?

    Cheers,

    Mark.
