Artist Quote for the day: While I recognize the necessity for a basis of observed reality...true art relies in a reality that is felt. -- Odilon Redon
Southwest ~ Mexican Folk Art ~ RoMy Original Paintings
Title: "Chile de Mexico"
Size: 12" x 9" (on gallery-wrapped canvas ~ ready to display!)
Hola! Muchas Gracias for stopping by my Terlingua Art Studio near Terlingua Ghost Town & Big Bend National Park (Texas) along the Old Mexico Border! For your consideration today I am offering this original painting:
A warm & lovely aura in this painting titled "Chili de Mexico" ~ these young senoritas are gathering chili ~ and taking a moment to visit with one another ~ time moves slow here in a field that seems to have no end ~ so much chili to be picked! ~ but the visit with a friend makes the work pass much more quickly!
The colours in this unique and very charming piece are gorgeous shades of blue, green, turquoise, coral red, yellow, purple & gold ~ sure to go with the colour scheme of most any casa! "Chili de Mexico" will add a classic touch of Old Mexico to any casa! And what a great addition it would make to the artwork of any restaurant!!
ABOUT THIS PAINTING
This Mexican folk art painting is an ORIGINAL work of art, brightly painted with acrylics on a professionally stretched, gallery wrapped canvas. This premier canvas is tightly wrapped & tucked around a very well-made, quality wooden frame with no side staples (please see photo above) ~ and all four sides have been painted so that it is ready for you to immediately display & enjoy just as quickly as you receive it (no additional framing is necessary) ~ and a hanger is already attached! Also this piece has been finished with two coats of a non-yellowing acrylic varnish to protect and enhance its beauty for many years to come. The back of this painting is signed by the artist, titled and dated (2009). The measurements are 12" x 9".
This original painting is a wonderful treasure to collect for yourself ~ but it would also make a great 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
