MASK AT FRIDA’S / Daily Painting #1220

Well, most of the day, today, was spent getting our wifi and cellular working. We had a nice lunch with Gari and Kayce, and after working things through with Telcel Thea and I had a nice two hour walk, exploring the town, followed by a relaxing evening visit back at Casa Laura.

As many of you know by now, one of my favorite subjects for painting is the Mexican Mask. When we visited Casa Azul, the home of Frida Kahlo recently, this ceramic one stopped me in my tracks. I knew I had to paint it, and soon! Now I have, and what a treat it was to paint.

¡Hasta Mañana!

  1. Conquest of Mexico called Dance of the Marquis. A lot of masks were made for these type of occasions. I can see why you had to paint him. His expression says a lot. Sharp. Found out there is a lot of history surrounding these masks. Thanks for opening another door of history.
