Las Comadres
47 x 66 in.

The depiction of the figurative characters in my paintings is everyday scenes of the Rio Grande Valley border life and culture. My family gives me the inspiration I need to create the facial expressions. My characters express humor, laughter and warmth and an inviting feeling with a cartoon like scene. I am comfortable painting with acrylic paints because they dry quickly which forces me to work at a fast pace while my creativity is at its peak. The colors are rich and strong to grab the audience’s attention so that the viewer can feel the enjoyment and the company of the painting.
