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

When my wife and I were on vacation in Sevilla, Spain, a few weeks ago, we saw several boutique shops full of colorful flamenco dresses. I imagine they all do a great business during the time leading up to La Feria de Abril (April Fair)! La Feria de Abril is a huge annual event held in Sevilla, known for its music, dancing, food, men dressed in suits and women dressed in flamenco dresses.
A crown jewel of Andalucía – Seville, Spain, also known as Sevilla in Spanish.
The Guadalquivir River runs through the city, with the San Telmo Bridge crossing over the river and connecting the long avenue of Paseo de Las Delicias, where the famous Torre de Oro (Gold Tower – built in the early 13th century) stands near the city center, with the large Plaza de Cuba.
Nerja is located on Spain’s southern coast in the province of Andalucía, where you’ll find beautiful architecture, lots of sun, and the blue Mediterranean sea! The stairs in this painting descend down to the beach in Nerja!
