[Gallery] This painting depicts Flamenco dancers and musicians performing at the historic El Farol in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is based on a series of photographs I took with kind permission of the fabulous performers while I was in Santa Fe teaching “Painting the Passion of Flamenco” at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. The colors, composition and approach used in this painting were inspired by John Singer Sargent’s magnificent El Jaleo and John Nieto’s vibrant fauvist works.

The lady dancing on the left of the painting is Giovanna Hinojosa. The dancers sitting down are Haley Licha and Rebekah Leyva. The singer is Gretchen Williams, and the guitarist is Mario Febres. They are all members of the dance company “Yjastros” which is part of the National Institute of Flamenco based in Albuquerque.
