This piece was created after a trip to Lisbon, Portugal which made my heart happy. When I came home, I was ready to express every detail that I felt, saw and heard. I hope you feel the heartbeat of Portugal in this piece, I will update my blog as I create new art.
There’s something about Granada, I was born in the Middle East so being in Andalusia was like home but with a European flair. I keep looking around expecting to see a store I recognized or people I knew, and I would catch myself each time, “You’re in Spain, not the Middle East.” After Granada, we went to Seville, and the scent of oranges was everywhere and everything. I am still discovering and translating my experience into art, more to come.
