Formentera, Spain – Seascape Painting on Canvas

The inspiration for this seascape painting came from a beach on the Spanish island of Formentera, and the beautiful blue hues of the Mediterranean Sea!

The canvas is made of Texas-grown organic cotton and is hand-stretched and hand-primed. The wood stretcher bars are FSC-certified and the all-natural gesso primer is made of limestone power, French marble dust, water and a touch of honey.

The canvas measures 8″ in height and 20″ in length.

Torre del Oro Painting

The Torre del Oro in Seville, Spain, is a remnant of the Moorish history that is intertwined into southern Spain. Built in the year 1220 with lime and straw mortar, along the the Guadalquivir River, it served to protect Seville from attacks. After Fernando III of Castile conquered the city in 1248, the tower was abandoned for a long time. In 1755, the Lisbon earthquake caused serious damage to the structure and plans were made to take it down a few years later, but it was saved due to inhabitants of the city protesting against its removal. Again it faced demolition during the Spanish Revolution of 1868, but was saved another time by city inhabitants. Today it serves as a nautical museum.

Aside from it’s 800 year history, it’s a beautifully impressive landmark that glimmers along the river, and is an excellent meeting place to enjoy a bocadillo sitting along the steps that lead down to the Guadalquivir!

Painting from La Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla

Earlier this summer, I received a nice compliment on a bullfight painting that I did about 6 years ago:

Spanish Bullfight. Acrylic on Canvas.

This painting was done from a photo that my wife took at a bullfight in Seville, Spain, in 2004, at the famous Plaza de la Maestranza de Caballería. The person who commented was very interested in the painting, as she is from Peru but has ancestry from Seville, and she asked if I had sold it. So I let her know that someone did buy it, but I could make another one for her. So I made a similar one, on a much larger canvas:

And here it is hanging in her and her husband’s home in North Carolina. Looks great!

Oranges on a Sunny Street in Sevilla, Spain – Watercolor Painting

As I’ve written about before, the oranges on the streets in Sevilla, Spain, are one of the magical things I love about the city. Ever since the first time I went there almost 11 years ago, in February 2004, I always think of the scent of oranges by the time February rolls around here in the United States. Every time I eat an orange, the smell reminds me of Sevilla. It’s just a beautiful thing to have fruit trees planted all over a city!

This abstract watercolor painting is of a sunny street full of oranges in Sevilla:

Bike and Cafe Watercolor Painting

Coffee is a daily pastime of mine, which is probably why I love to paint cafes and coffee so much. This watercolor painting shows a sunny street, a parked red bike, and a cafe beckoning you to enter, sit down, take your time, and sip on a coffee. Now that sounds like a day well spent!

The original 9″ x 12″ painting, on archival, acid-free watercolor paper, is available for purchase, as well as 8″ x 10″ archival prints. Just visit the “Buy Art” page for more information.

El Café de Andalucía – Spanish Coffee Painting

Would I go all the way to Spain to sit in a café and have a cup of coffee?

You bet I would!

OK, well the trip would be about more than just that, of course. I’d go to see the sights, smell the smells, and listen to the sounds. But tasting that cup of coffee, in a nice little café on a small side street, would be like the cherry on top.

This watercolor painting is from one of those times of sitting in a cafe and sipping a coffee. Specifically, this was in the Heliopolís neighborhood of Sevilla.

Ahhhh….
