Wishing you all a great holiday week! Feliz Navidad! RoMy
Title: "Mariachi Serenade"
Size: 12" x 9" (on gallery-wrapped canvas ~ ready to display!)
Hola! Muchos 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 with NO RESERVE:
It's a gorgeous evening in Old Mexico ~ a sliver of moon and a sprinkling of stars! And this pretty senorita Lucinda ~ wearing a lovely nightgown with a ribbon tie ~ is being serenaded by the handsome young hombre Raul ~ the mariachi are strumming their guitars and singing sweet songs of love! At the casa next door Patrice is standing in the doorway and as she watches she cannot help but wish she had some admirer of her own!
There are many tiny intricate details in this whimsical, fun painting ~ tiny Talavera pots and hanging basket of cactus and flowers on the balcony ~ the smallest cross above the door of the casa and a hand-woven rug out front ~ and a chili ristra. On the balcony Lucinda's little gato watches the Mariachi ~ and inside the bedroom a candelabra is lit with red candles and the bed is covered with a beautiful bedspread! And the colours in this piece are gorgeous! Lovely shades of blue, turquoise, green, coral pink, red, purple, 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 not just for the home ~ but also for a Mexican restaurant!
(Please Note: Actual colours may vary somewhat due to difference in computer monitors.)
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 ~ 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
