“Fierce Lil Bibi” is my creative alter ego. I created this for a class to show what my “expressive wild” self looks like.
Tonala-style Toucan. Acrylic on paper. 8”x8” (20cm x 20cm). Plucking ripe berries from trees!
Little Tonala-style hen with haiku. Acrylic on paper. 8” x 8” (20cm x 20cm). Time for breakfast!
Tonala-style Doves. Acrylic on paper. 8″x8″ (20cm x 20cm). The excerpt from a charming poem written by Louisa May Alcott.
Tonala-style Parrot, “Oscar”. Acrylic on paper. 8″ x 8″ (20cm x 20cm). Encircling words are a Chinese Proverb “Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.)
Tonala-style cat #7. Acrylic on paper. 7″ x 7″. Named “Salvador” for the artist who also has an extravagant mustache.
Tonala-style dog, “Rudo.” Acrylic on paper. 8.5″ x 8″. He’s a little fierce-looking thus the name, “Rudo” (Badass).
Tonala-style hedgehog, Acrylic on paper. 8.5″ x 6.5″. Hedgehogs are so endearing and I painted one in the style of Tonala, Mexico.
Tonala-style dog, “Arturo.” Acrylic on paper. 7″ x 7″ (17cm x 17cm). I used to own a plaster statue of the RCA “His Master’s Voice” Jack Russell Terrier. Arturo’s profile is copied from this statue and decorated with traditional Tonala patterns.
This little piggy has pesos! Acrylic painting of an Tonala-style piggy bank in a circle of Pesos. 7″x7.”
