Cartagena Oil Painting

Collection “Ethnic paintings”. Drawing inspiration from the attire and architecture of Colombia’s Cartagena, this painting captures the essence of the vibrant garments worn by the local fruit sellers, known as “palenqueras,” and the sun-drenched charm of the city’s old streets.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
