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!
