Recently, I bought a terrific little book by Taschen, called
"Mexico Style". I paid under $15 for it. It is a bargain and something I will constantly refer back to. And the best part of it, it fits right into my purse. For many years, I have heard from many people, particularly artists, that I have a great eye for color. I don't know how true that is, but I think that my Latin roots have something to do with that "gift". I am drawn to bright colors and use an abundance of them in my artwork. At home, there are splashes of color throughout the house, but because I am ever mindful of the other half who lives with me, our home is, by my standards, very restrained. However, there is no doubt that Latins live here! So, I decided to post some pictures that celebrate the colors of one of my cultures, my father's Mexican roots. One of my latest pieces is the Frida box. I completed the box last week. The other pictures, the blue staircase and the Day of the Dead niche, come from "Mexico Style".
