About This Image

On my second trip to Mérida, I was all about architectural details. It made for a fun change of pace in a city filled with color and old world colonial charm. The light that day was also exceptional as you can tell by the vivid red wall surrounding that classic old wooden door. The color really pops doesn’t it?

This door jumped out at me not just because of the ornate details but the generous size of the architecture. It clearly came from an era long before doors came off of a conveyor belt in a factory somewhere. Even the trim work around that old wooden door is big and impressive. Someone was definitely trying to make as statement when they made this old wooden door long ago.

This is old Mexico in a nutshell for me. This classic old wooden door is a beautiful example of handcrafted architecture set amidst the colors for which life south of the border is known. It’s a reminder both of the history of the country as well as the zest for life of the people that is part of Mexican culture. And that old door not only speaks of the history of Mexico. It tells the story of the people who lived behind those thick red walls for generations in the city of Mérida.

Does this classic old wooden door print tell stories to you as well when you look at it? Does it remind you of time spent in Mérida or perhaps Mexico in general? Or does your attraction to this Mexican architecture boil down to the vivid color and bold lines of that ornate old wooden door? I hope you might take a few moments to tell me what details caught your eye in this classic Mexican scene from the streets of Mérida.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
