I have traveled and lived in many countries in my life. The Northeast coast of Brazil is one of the most amazing places ever. The small village of historic Olinda is on the outskirts of the large city of Recife and just a gem. It was founded in the early 1500's and some of the architecture there is beyond cool! One building I was especially taken by was the monastery of St. Benedict. For the sake of time and redundancy you can find more information about this church here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilica_and_Monastery_of_St._Benedict,_Olinda
St. Benedicts is a work of art unto itself. I worked for hours to get my art to come close to display the entire beauty and uniqueness of this old architecture. The only way I came close was in my finished multi-media piece on canvas and I have been told many times by patrons that I hit it. Hope you like. I will forever be indebted to my dear friend and fellow artist, Ashti Ma Parithosh, who introduced me to her beautiful country. ❤️
St. Benedict Monastery, Olinda
