Painting: Acrylic on Paper.
Size: 30 H x 22 W x 0.3 in
This is the second painting of the "Chichicastenango" series accomplished in 2010 and inspired by Guatemalan indigenous textile colors and woven fabrics. Chichicastenango is a town in Guatemala known for its market place where literally thousands of colorful textiles are sold by the local people. In this painting, horizontal bars of color are repeated on a red painterly background. I like the contrast between the irregular deckled edge of the Arches 300 lb watercolor paper and the straight geometric horizontal lines.
