Title: "Dia Bueno!" (Good Day!)
Size: 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" (painted on thin tin ~ hole punched ~ hanger attached)
Hola! Muchos Gracias for stopping by my Terlingua Art Studio near Terlingua Ghost Town & Big Bend National Park (Texas) along the border of Old Mexico! For your consideration today I am offering:
A whimsical little painting of a Mexican gayo (rooster) crowing, "Dia Bueno!" (Good Day!) to the morning sun! Beautiful colours in this artwork ~ gold, yellow, turquoise, blue, green, red, and orange. Enough FiEsTa colours to go with any color scheme in your casa!
This is a great piece of Southwest ~ Mexican Folk Art for decorating your home ~ or office work place! If you haven't yet started a collection of Mexican Folk Art what a perfect time to start ~ the investment you make in folk art today will surely increase in value with time!
ABOUT THIS PAINTING
This Mexican folk art painting is an ORIGINAL work of art, brightly painted with acrylics on a piece of thin TIN which makes it especially charming & folk artsy (tin is a most popular medium to paint on in Old Mexico) plus its durability makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor decorating such as a backporch or patio area. Also, this piece, which is 6 3/4" x 4 3/4", has been finished with several coats of non-yellowing acrylic enamel to protect and enhance its beauty for years to come. There are already two holes punched in the top and it comes with a copper wire hanger so that it can be immediately displayed & enjoyed as quickly as you receive it! The back of this painting is signed by the artist, titled and dated (2009).
This RoMy Original Tiny Tin (TM) is small but sweet ~ simply "feel good" art! These tins look fabulous displayed alone but even better in groups across your wall! (just as they decorate their casa in Old Mexico!)
Also these make a wonderful gift!!
ABOUT THE ARTIST
The artist ~ RoMy ~ that's me! I live on the border between Texas and Mexico ~ near the Big Bend National Park ~ a few miles from Terlingua Ghost Town ~ and I love the history and culture of this area ~ a raw, still quite primitive land ~ a desert land where "rainbows wait for rain." The last few photos in this description show my outdoor studio which faces Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande, the natural border between Old Mexico and Texas ~ and it is from this primitive setting ~ 80 miles from town ~ that I find most of my inspiration for painting. (in the photos Mexico is on the left side of the river and Texas is on the right)
I enjoyed the visit ~ Gracias! And, please, while you are here take a moment to
