Story Behind the Painting

This painting is a portrait of the clock tower in Buenos Aires, Argentina - Torre Monumental (formerly Torre de los Ingleses which means "Tower of the English" as this was a gift from the local British community in 1810. I took this reference photo from my hotel room window which had a lovely view of both old and new Buenos Aires with the ocean in the horizon. I thought the sultry sunset time of day was especially fitting as all the tango entertainment starts after the sun goes down and the spicy, vibrant colors are most pronounced.
