Mama Rosy

Mama Rosy #1, 35" x 24"
Still working on several involved works so I thought I'd post this in the mean time. This is the one that started all the Rosy paintings. I'm sure there's more of her to come as she gets older and I get the chance to be with her a little more.

Honor Song


This has to be one of my favorite paintings. It has everything I enjoy about painting, textures, pre-columbian Mayan pottery, Zapotec rugs, flowers, and most important for me, honoring my elders and ancestors.
