"La Maceta: Wenuke's Lei", 2010
10" H x 24" W
My still-life painting, "La Maceta: Wenuke's Lei" is included in my Lotería series and is inspired by the image pictured on the Mexican Lotería game card, 'La Maceta' or 'The Flower Pot.' This painting is a tribute to our dear friend, the American author, William T. Vollmann. The lei pictured here atop the elongated terra cotta flower pot, was from Hawai'i- Waikiki, O'Ahu, where my husband and I have often traveled to. Wenuke is a Siren ghost character in Bill Vollmann's book of short stories, entitled, "Last Stories."
