Revolution No. 11

Revolution No. 11, 48 x 36 inches, acrylic on canvas, $1800

There are far fewer images of women than men in the photos documenting the Mexican Revolution, although the suffering of the times was shared by all.  This lady fighter would have been the wife or daughter of some wealthy hacendado, pictured astride a horse in her fancy clothing and stylish hat.  

This work is available for viewing and purchase in Tucson, Arizona.  Contact Gerardo Campos at chilesanto at gmail dot com.

Revolution No. 10, 48 x 36 inches, acrylic on canvas, $1800
The tenth in the Revolution series, featuring a dog.  I have a great fondness for Mexican street dogs, who have a series of their own.  They are valiant creatures, infinite in their variety, and I'm happy to report that their fortunes have improved immensely since I started visiting Mexico in the 1970s.   This work is available for viewing and purchase in Tucson, Arizona.  Contact Gerardo Campos at chilesanto at gmail dot com.

Igor Feroz

Igor Feroz, 8 x 8 inches, acrylic on masonite, $85
Igor when he was tiny, looking very fierce.  I've never actually seen Igor looking fierce -- he's sweetness personified -- but the camera caught this expression and I couldn't resist making a painting of it.  Buy it now at the Daily Paintworks link at the right.
