About This Image

This festive Mexico scene is courtesy of my brief stay in Oaxaca. My time in this beautiful city was just enough to whet the appetite. It’s packed with lovely old Spanish Colonial architecture. It was truly a city where I felt like I stumbled over one picturesque street corner after another. In fact this print is based on my parting view of Oaxaca shortly before boarding a night bus bound for San Cristóbal de las Casas.

Oaxaca was simply the epitome of festive Mexico. I was there between Christmas day and the Epiphany. The intersection of every street was decorated with massive piñatas. Everywhere I had been it was clear that it was a festive season, but it was Oaxaca that really seemed to have gone the extra mile to celebrate.

I spotted the young lady sitting in the doorway in the puddle of light from the street lamp and she felt like such a contrast with the festive Mexico scene that surrounded her. There was a feeling of longing as she gazed into the distance. Her story is a part of this print that I don’t know and you the viewer are left to decide. Was she waiting for friends? Missing someone? Or? That brief moment when I saw her sitting in that rustic Mexican doorway has taken on a life of its own separate from the actual young lady.

This eye-catching print will always ultimately always bring back the festive Mexico vibe that I liked so much. My experiences with Mexico and the lovely people there has always been positive and upbeat, but it was especially so during those lovely few days wandering the colorful streets of Oaxaca.

Have you also been to Oaxaca? Or do you simply appreciate the colorful vibe of this festive Mexico print? I hope you might take a few moments to share what strikes you the most in this scene.

Note: Due to the concentration of well preserved Spanish Colonial architecture, Oaxaca is a UNESCO designated World Heritage site.

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.
