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.
