These reminded my husband about our trip to the gorgeous city of Lisbon. Alfama is an area in Lisbon that we loved to hang out..hence the title.

Both are 30 X 24 inches acrylics on canvas. C & C welcome!

Chaya, these are great reminders of your visit or stay there that will evoke memories for years to come. Each has lots of color and texture to excite the viewer.

Alfama must be a festive and exciting place, because that's what comes across in your colorful paintings.

Thanks Trier! I liked it, but was hoping that it won't look messy to the viewer

Yes Jim, Alfama (an area in Lisbon, Portugal) is all of that. I'm attaching a few street scenes I took.
Very nice to look at. The colours are lovely.

Thanks Penny!

What a great way to remember your visit! So much more evocative than photos

great colors. I think the second one has a strong sense of city scape. The first is more stream-of-consciousness.

Both very likable.

graphicali - Thank you!

Cliff - Thanks! That's amazing you could tell the first was a stream-of-consciousness as it was very involuntarily painting session and it just "happened". The second was a planned one to somewhat match the first.

Beautiful colors on the two companion pieces. Alfama looks very paintable.
