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!

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:

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….

Smell of Oranges in the Air – Sevilla

Here in Northern Virginia, the sun is shining bright this morning…but it’s cold! So I’ve been going through photos of warmer places, and came across one from our trip to Sevilla earlier this year.

Ahhhh, the fresh smell of oranges in the air. There’s nothing like waking up chipper, taking a step outside into the streets (dressed to the nigh, of course), and smelling the roses…I mean…oranges. Really, it’s just as good as “waking up and smelling the roses” anyways. Perhaps better!

These things fall all over the place in Sevilla, at least in February when we were there last.

We even saw this guy kicking them to and fro (I think he was tired of walking on oranges all the time):

All of the oranges got me to thinking…

I’ve never seen any town or city like this in Florida (known for oranges). Would it even be legal in the U.S. to have orange trees planted all over a city? I mean, we live in a litigious society, so what if an orange fell on someone’s head and hurt them? Would they sue the city?

Anyways, all the more reason to appreciate the oranges on the streets in Spain!

Spanish Flamenco Dress Art – Charcoal Drawing

Spanish Flamenco Dress Art

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.

Here is a charcoal and red ink drawing of a Spanish Flamenco dress that I recently created. Art Prints are available here.

Mediterranean Sea Spanish Painting – Nerja, Spain

If you ever travel to southern Spain and want to go to the renowned Costa del Sol beaches, may I suggest an alternative to the bustling areas around Málaga?

Nerja:

Nerja is nestled into the east end of the Costa del Sol.

Beautiful cliffs, turquoise sea, Spanish cuisine, beaches, what more could you want?

When my wife and I were there, we stayed in a very small village next to Nerja named Maro, and took day trips to the beaches of Nerja.
