LA ALHAMBRA, GRANADA

Oil on canvas 12"x16" PRICE: $Sold/Vendido
The name Alhambra comes from an Arabic root which means "red or crimson castle", it has been many years that i didn't do a painting of a Spanish Landscape. The Alhambra has always been a place I love. So I decided to do a painting of it, and also of Sierra Nevada , 'The snowy mountain behind the castle. This mountain was in my surroundings along my childhood .
El nombre de La Alhambra proviene de una raiz Arabe que significa"Castillo rojo o carmesi". Hace muchos anos que no pintaba un paisaje Espanol. la Alhambra siempre ha sido un lugar que amo, asi que decidi pintarla , y tambien La Sierra nevada. Esta Sierra siempre estaba en mis alrededores durante mi ninez.

Hello there Jesus!... Sorry for my long absence... but as you likely have gathered from my posting... time has been hard to squeeze in because of the move!

I love this piece! You have captured the colour and the majesty that one attributes to the Spanish countryside and culture... past and present!

Your passion for and childhood connection to this landscape make it powerful and passionate!

An Estevez gem!

Good Painting and Happy summer!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

PS We do live closer to you in Belleville now... come visit... and paint!
