MEXICALI ROSE: Where are You?
Barn Gallery Show 2020 There are eight (8) paintings in the Mexicali Rose series: painted in Mixed Media on Stonhenge paper. 12″x”18″
The title of the series is from the song “Mexicali Rose.” The song was very popular with music by Jack Tenney and lyrics by Helen Stone, published in 1923. “The song is a love song of a man who must leave his love for a while.” I have added to the song’s title: “Where are You?” to distibguish the series from the song itself. The abstract series I did, does not represent the song’s lyrics, but does bring back memories I have of my painting residence in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico from 1987-2012.
