I’m determined to catch up with real time (those of you following me on Instagram will already know we’re just back from Amsterdam) but first I want to finish showing the work inspired by a lovely, sunny holiday to Spain last year.

Another tick on the bucket list was a visit to La Mezquite, the local name for the great Mosque even though it’s officially a Cathedral now so is sometimes also referred to as The Cathedral of Cordoba.

It is enchanting, so atmospheric and mesmerising.

The structure itself is awesome and mind-boggling (try drawing that!) but the history of it’s development is the same.

Originally the site of a Roman temple and then a Visigoth church (nomadic Germanic peoples) it was later built on and extended by generations of Muslim leaders. In the 1200’s it was converted to a Cathedral with no building changes and then in 1520’s after lots of arguing it got it’s Spanish Cathedral makeover.

When it was a Mosque is was a simple rectangle and was built onto to accommodate a growing population by adding further aisles which gives the amazing views of stripy, painted arches and aisles.

I did do some drawing on site and have so far painted the piece above but there’s lots more inspiration on my To Do list – it’s hard to keep up!
