Rio de Onor is a small village in the North, in a region called something like «behind the mountains», and it is the last communitary village in Portugal.
The picture depicts a tipycal house made of raw stone and wood.
Winters can be very severe in this place, so people live upstairs and the animals, like goats, oxes and cows they live downstairs, keeping the house warm.
I painted this one in the summer.
