Tonala Tortoise

Tonala Tortoise with traditional motifs and patterns. Watercolor on paper. 11” x 8.5” (28cm x 22cm).

Backstory: I was walking in my neighborhood when I noticed what looked like a large rock moving in someone’s yard. It was a tortoise! A very friendly tortoise. It walked right up to the fence and gave me a good look. I was charmed. I had no idea tortoises could be so friendly and charismatic. My tortoise friend inspired this painting.

Tonala Bird #1

Tonala Bird #1. Watercolor on paper. 7.5”x 9” (18cm x 23cm). 

The pottery bird model for this painting looked to me like a cockatiel but apparently cockatiels are not native to Mexico. I’m now guessing it’s a type of parrot or a Crested Caracara also known as the Mexican Eagle. Perhaps both birds will sing a beautiful song if you keep a green tree in your heart.
