"Mi Cancion" oil on canvas 30"x36" 2007
I painted this as a self-portrait. The transparent skull shows stars symbolizing a connection to things greater than myself, even though I might not fully comprehend them. The contrast of the heart and skeleton show what really matters is deeper than the surface. On the ether breeze other hearts are riding, this is to show that we are connected to others with real emotion. I love music and play guitar sometimes. I'm from the Southwest, so I feel comfortable in the desert. The cactus provide a barrier for the viewer to peer through, so that they don't interrupt this magical scene.
