Two new paintings

Summer has brought with it inspiration from gardens and warmth. Sharing with you my two new small paintings.

‘July’ - is the month for celebration, color and heat. Oil on canvas panel 9″x12″.
‘Besamé Mucho’ - oil on canvas panel 12″x12″. Literal translation: Kisses me a lot. While painting, I listened to the song from the CD ‘Jim Hall & Basses’. It was written in 1940 by a young Mexican, Consuelo Velázquez, before her sixteenth birthday.  According to Velázquez, she was inspired by an aria from the Spanish 1916 opera ‘Goyescas’ by Enrique Granados. 

Please visit my Etsy shop and blog... and have a wonderful weekend!
