for the past seven days using a limited palate in 10 minutes
i joined in with friends and posted on instagram. this is
one of the quick paintings. i later added collage.
and a journal spread
i am painting over previously painted canvases like this one.
i attended a retrospective of frank romero's art
at the museum of latin american art in long beach.
he is a los ángeles artist raised in boyle heights, where i grew up.
he depicts los ángeles since the 70's and has been prolific!
some of his murals depict the history of mexican american in la.
he uses vibrant colors with bold brush strokes. the energy from his
paintings is palatable. i will need to go back to again to
be able to appreciate the scope of his work.
this is the study of the mural he painted along the freeway for the 1984 olympics.
Happy Friday with wishes for an enjoyable weekend!
