Fusión Semptiembre!

Hey People! September is independence month here is Mexico and the arts & crafts sale I'm in has themed this edition "El mes más Mexicano" so it inspired me to try and paint a few objects with what feels like Mexican to me. Everything in this country always looks so festive, cheerful, colorful and bright. I used a lot of red, which I don't usually go for, and some new shapes and forms. Also, coincidently, I had just finished painting my "Ojo de Dios" (bottom left) which I wrote about a few weeks ago. If you're in the area I'd love to see you there :)

Este fin de semana voy a estar en Bazar Fusión, si estás o vas a estar en el DF el fin de semana del 2, 3 y 4 de Septiembre pasa a saludar, he estado trabajando mucho para llevarles cosas nuevas! Pueden encontrar toda la información AQUÍ

New Bookmaks in the shop!

Wooden Wall Letters 

Here are a few styles of wooden letters I paint. These are mostly feathers and roses, but I do a lot of different floral styles, leaves, beachy, cosmic, etc etc... I've listed these letters on Etsy, for personalized monograms. I can basically paint any idea you like as long as it's related to nature and I'll interpret it with my personal style as best I can!

Ojo De Dios

They're so pretty! It's called "Ojo de Dios" (God's Eye) and they are the work of The Huicholes here in Mexico. These are made with sticks and yarn but I made my own with acrylic paint and paper. Check out these by Jay Mohler, he's a genius.

"El "ojo de Dios" es la figura instrumental religiosa más conocida de la cultura huichola. Representa los cinco puntos cardinales del cosmos wirrárika -oriente, poniente, norte, sur y centro- y en él se reivindica al oriente, donde surge "abuelo fuego", punto geográfico más importante del universo. Un "ojo de Dios" equivale a un año en la vida de un niño y cada año, después de su iniciación en la "Fiesta del tambor" apenas recién nacido, su padre debe elaborar uno hasta que cumpla cinco años de edad, para que siempre esté protegido. Estos amuletos integran un "árbol cósmico" que se tira al mar en un lugar sagrado que los wirrárikas tienen en San Blas, Nayarit."
