Toño Visits Frida Kahlo

Toño Visits Frida Kahlo by Marisol Apostol
Mixed Media 

From the series "Un Pararito Me Dijo"  
Creative energy is kicking my butt!  Heck yeah!  All I can do is let it be. This past week, I have been sketching a lot of artwork.  I have no idea why, but it's pouring out of me.  It even keeps me up at night.

In one of the sketching sessions, certain theme became very apparent: a bird.  I'm calling it "Un Pararito Me Dijo" series.  I started looking for a name for the birdie,  after two days of searching and asking my family, the name was found.  I considered Paco, Lalo, Pepe, Niko and many others.  The name so effortlessly showed itself as Toño -just like my papa's nickname.  My pops was also a trio style ballad and mariachi singer.  The name is so perfect!

Yesterday morning, I ignored my sketch book and went directly to the canvas. I just had to get this out of my system from start to finished.  So here it the first piece entitled Toño Visits Frida Kahlo.  Enjoy!
