Lisbon, chesnut vendor

On a trip to Portugal, a few years back, we saw ladies selling chestnuts in the streets of Lisbon, and with the smoke rising from the coals, I noticed a nice composition, snapped a photo, and painted this in oil on a 11 by 14 canvas.


  1. Horst, your snapshots of life are fabulous. Your work is phenomenal and I can't believe the level of amazing detail!

  2. Love the composition. I feel like I'm standing with the older gentleman looking at what the lady is doing. This painting pulls you into the scene. Great work.
