The Day I Got the Blues

Back in 1998-99, I did a heart wrenching photo study. One that I keep looking at constantly. The work was my way to process my only sibling's death in 1996.  Working with Betti, my life long model, I searched within to collaborate on a powerful and poignant emotional journey.  

This past weekend, I got one photo out to give it some light after 14 years. I decided to mix it with other media and to use some color... yes, I love color and you know it.  So this is what came out of it.  I called it The Day I Got the Blues. It will be on display at the Mujer de Ayer, Hoy y Siempre exhibit which opens this Saturday at the Centro Cultural de la Raza in Balboa Park.

Also on display is Toño Visits Frida Kahlo which I mentioned back in January.  This is its first live showing... I hope it's well received.   

Mujer de Ayer, Hoy y Siempre opens this Saturday, March 9th and it closes on April 2nd, 2013.  Stop by and check out some art!
