Bells of La Parroquia
Bells of La Parroquia_edited.jpg

"Bells of La Parroquia" is a vivid depiction of the renowned parish church located in the town square of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. This artwork is a tribute to the magnificent architectural symbol of the town, characterized by its iconic pink towers, often compared to a 'wedding cake', that dominate the skyline. 

 

The painting encapsulates the unique history of the towers, designed by the indigenous stonemason Zeferino Gutiérrez in the late 19th century. Gutiérrez famously sketched his design on a postcard of a Belgian church and guided builders by etching plans in the sand with a stick. This stunning structure, juxtaposed with the rest of the church dating back to the late 17th century, brings forth a blend of history and innovation.

 

At the heart of this artwork is the enchanting sound of the church bells ringing, a sound that I find incredibly magical. This painting is a testament to the timeless echoes of the bells, reminding us of the present moment. It beautifully captures the melodious ring that resonates throughout the night, imprinting the sound in a visual form on canvas.
