Yucatan Cow - Acrylic Painting - Yucatan Brama Bull. Acrylic. Many years ago I took a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. At one person’s house, the bus stopped and we got to look around. I snapped a photo of the back yard where this Brama bull was standing.
La Fiesta - This was for a college 2-D design class project. We were to paint a song—it represents “La Fiesta” by Maynard Ferguson. The top triangles represent the high, screechy trumpets, the lower portion is the keyboard and rhythm sections. The middle wavy blue line is the trombone solo. The colors used for the wavy line and the background pink create an optical illusion where it looks like there is a dark line next to the blue and a white line next to the pink.
