Alison Mackie – Artwork

March 5, 2013

These images are by artist Alison Mackie. She’s also the author of The Gypsy Chronicles. Alison is a pretty incredible talent. I enjoyed her book and I love these images —  so I had to post. I hope to travel to Spain this summer and these images remind me of Spain, flamenco and my love for both. The Festival de Jerez is taking place so it seems appropriate to add some letras por bulerías from that region.There’s a great resource where I found the below verses, along with a mountain of more flamenco letras. Please visit: Letras de Flamenco


Tengo una puerta en mi alma
que no necesita llave
yo la tengo siempre abierta
y no me la cierra nadie

( bulerías de jerez letra)


Cuando salga la luna
yo voy a verte
porque me alumbra el camino
gitana mia
pa yo quererte

( bulerías de jerez letra)


Cuatro pare francisco
cuatro del carmen
cuatro de la victoria
vaya que si, son doce frailes.

Era por eso
solito por eso
guarda los limones que tiene tu huerto

( bulerías de jerez letra)


Me tiraste un limón
que si ma dado en la frente
eso lo hace el amor
flamenquita los que sienten
ay que te quiero
te quiero te quiero
que de vergüenza
y no te lo peno

( bulerías de jerez letra)


Thank you for your inspiration, Alison Mackie and for sharing your artistry with the world.
