Title: "Mariachi Moon"
Size: Approx. 8" x 7 3/4" (painted on thin TIN ~ tiny nail hole already punched ~ ready to hang!)
Muchos Gracias for dropping by my Terlingua Art Estudio near Terlingua Ghost Town and the Big Bend National Park in Texas ~ along the Rio Grande and the border of Old Mexico! Today for your consideration I am offering this original painting with NO RESERVE:
It's a beautiful night in Old Mexico ~ the Mariachi band is strumming their guitars and singing love songs ~ couples are dancing beneath the moon ~ chickens are strolling about! ~ and it's an evening yet young ~ and filled with romance! Sweet love is in the air!
Gorgeous colours in this piece! Lovely shades of blue, turquoise, coral, red, purple, green, yellow and gold ~ a combination which will complement the colour scheme of most any casa! This piece will make a wonderful addition to anyone's collection of folk art! A great painting for the home ~ or even a Mexican restaurant!
This would also make a nice gift! Think Christmas!!
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 is a very popular "canvas" to paint on in Old Mexico, and adds much charm to this artwork! Also, this piece, which is approx. 8" x 7 3/4", has been finished with a non-yellowing acrylic enamel to protect and enhance its beauty for years to come. There is already a tiny nail hole punched in the top so that it can be immediately displayed once you receive it! The front of this painting is signed by the artist and the back is signed, titled and dated (2009).
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
