Mexican Peon Dolls / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches ©JohnFarnsworthMexican Peon Dolls / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

These little dolls from our own collection are represented here at close to life-size. It seems like only yesterday Mexico and the Southwest were filled with people in colorful costumes that were a part of their daily wear. Now, it seems we all look the same in our sweats and t-shirts. Except, of course, at festivals and in parades. Somehow that’s just not the same. I’ll leave it to smarter people than I am to decide which is better for society as a whole. But being a visual sort of guy, I miss the color and vernacular nature of indigenous people’s native costumes. Anyway, there will be lots more of these personal items showing up in coming paintings. I hope they will bring you as much pleasure in their painted form as they have us in their original form.

One thought on “MEXICAN PEON DOLLS Daily Painting #62

  1. OMG Juanaday, I think this is my very favourite so far, and for what it’s worth, I agree with you about missing the native costumes.
    So….never missing a day painting, eh?! What dicipline! And it’s been mONTHS! I tried it because I was “stuck”….and did 1/day for about 3 days and then launched off back into my “usual” (i.e., came unstuck).
    Been out in the landscape quite a bit, and when I am , will do 3 or 4 little ones, so does that count?? (none of them are any good, so no!).
    Hugs to both of you, G
