About This Image

Oaxaca is a city known for its rich stock of authentic Spanish Colonial architecture. And, as you can see from this print, Oaxaca has much in common with the rest of Mexico. It’s a city that simply has no fear of vibrant colors. Just look at this one city block with great orange, gold, and blue on those neighboring buildings. Considering my love for bright colors and heritage architecture, Oaxaca was a city that I hated to leave after only a few days there.

In fact there is such a concentration of Spanish Colonial architecture in the city core of Oaxaca that it is a UNESCO designated world heritage site. The streets abound with old churches and old colonial homes like the vivid orange building in this print that’s now a hotel. When I first arrived in Oaxaca, it felt almost overwhelming, in a good way. I wanted to wander every street of the city and simply didn’t have the time. Of course, better a wealth of options than a city filled with drab streets! Rarely a a danger in colorful Mexico, of course.

I have no doubt that Oaxaca’s memorable Spanish Colonial architecture will draw me back some day. Every time I look at this print and others from my brief time there, I want to return. In a way, as time moves on, it begins to feel like a dream. Oaxaca begins to feel like my own Mexican El Dorado, a mythical city of gold in the hills of Mexico. Doesn’t this print have a feeling of unreal beauty?

Have you had the pleasure of visiting Oaxaca yourself? Or are you quite simply bowled over by the great old Spanish Colonial architecture and vibrant colors of this bold print? I hope you might take a few moments to let me know what attracts you most to this particular 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.
