A big thank you to all those who submitted title suggestions! It was a tough choice since they were all so good! The one I finally settled on was, “Reunited” submitted by Victoria Moxley! I’ll be sending out the 8” X 10” soon! Thank you! #HelpMeNameThis #Reunited #MerryChristmas2020
A while back I asked my wife Anita to dress up as Frida and pose for me so I could take some photos as a reference for a painting. This portrait is the result. I gave it to her for her birthday. She gave it the title, “Mis Raíces”.
Cuauhtémoc also known as Cuauhtemotzín, Guatimozín or Guatémoc; c. 1495) was the Aztec ruler (tlatoani) of Tenochtitlan from 1520 to 1521, making him the last Aztec Emperor. The name Cuauhtémoc means “Descending Eagle” or “one who has descended like an eagle” (As it swoops down on its prey).
I painted this portrait of my father-in-law, Chano De la Rosa (May he Rest In Peace) a few month ago, but I wanted to mention him this Father’s Day as a great example of a father, father-in-law, grandfather and a true man of God. It was a common sight to see him reading the Word of God. I know he is rejoicing now with our Heavenly Father! “Like a father feels compassion for his children— that’s how the LORD feels compassion for those who honor him.” Psalms 103:13
