Noches De Cultura

I guess most of my paintings tend to have a bit of Picasso. I like Picasso but he tended to distort women to the point of disfiguration. I can't do that I love women.

There is a reason people like a lot. It,s great. The colors and detail are real good. What size is this work and what kind of paint did you use?
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

I really like it. And I like that you put in that relatively realistic face, because it gives the eyes of those (of us) who are fans of various degrees of realism something to rest on for a bit; then the eyes dance around the painting to enjoy the other elements of it. It's a wonderful piece.

I agree with the others... Beautiful! I like how you mixed various art forms (music, theatre, painting) into the theme of this piece and I love the colors.
