Al Fama Neighborhood, Lisbon, 24" x 24"--1 inch wide
This is a painting that depicts a neighborhood in Lisbon well know for Fado music, a king of folk music specifically indigenous to Lisbon, Portugal. It is an old European Style neighborhood with Spanish architectural influence. The walkways through the neighborhood start high up looking out at the water and weave gradually downhill with twists and turns and stairways, revealing homey enclaves with flowers and decorations. Each twist in the walkway reveals something new to discover and remember.
