About This Image

This street scene very much embodies my memories of colorful Granada, Nicaragua. Although far from an unknown city, I went in somewhat blindly. When I made plans to visit Costa Rica and Nicaragua, it was somewhat last minute and my over-riding interest was somewhere sunny and colorful. The truth is much of what I knew about Nicaragua in general was decades old memories of Nicaragua in the news. While the impacts of those times rattle on as they do, it was not the Nicaragua I saw. And colorful Granada was simply charming.

We were there for a short few days and I spent the bulk of my time haunting streets like the one here that radiated out from the historic center of Granada. In the midst of the green square beyond, is the classic cathedral with its bell towers standing over the skyline. And like the rest of colorful Granada, that cathedral is a vivid color! It seemed everywhere you looked in the colonial core of the city, the buildings were vying for which one would be the brightest yellow or the deepest red or fill in the blank for another brilliant color!

Yet at the same time, Granada had a well-lived-in feeling for lack of a better term to describe it. It felt comfortable. Colorful Granada was less touristy and more someone’s-home. As much as I loved some of the coastal cities I saw in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, it was Granada where I ached to stay longer when it was time to pack up and move on. And in my mind’s eye, this is how I remember that charming old city. I remember bright colors and crowded streets. And the gorgeous feeling of the warm sun on what would have been a cold winter’s day back home.

Does this colorful Granada print remind you of a stay there? Or do the bright colors call you regardless of ever having set foot there? I hope you will pause for a moment to let me know what speaks to you most about this paritcular print.

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.
