Casa Enrique


Pastel and Colored Pencil on paper
16 x 20
This doorway is located in Granada, Spain and the group I was traveling with stopped there because a lookout offered a beautiful view of the Alhambra, situated high up on a hillside directly opposite where we were.  There was a sign nearby that advertised traditional Flamenco.  You don't have to be born gypsy to dance Flamenco, but it sure does help because it is a dance that evolved from oppression, poverty and passion.  I love to watch it and listen to Spanish guitar provided both are done properly.  The only thing in Spain that is equal to it is eating tapas.  If I could watch Flamenco while eating tapas, I'd be one happy lady.
