I'm not sure, but this might be my favorite of the face sculptures at Rosario's.

I have no idea what caused the strange lens flare in this photo. It seems rather fitting somehow though...

Check out Rosario's blog

I'll be posting artwork I photographed while visiting with him in San Felipe.

J. Rosario Torres

The Baja trip had many highlights.
We had the good fortune to take a tour of the J. Rosario Torres art studio.
It was wonderful. He is an amazing artist.

As we wandered through the grounds we came across face after face. Each one more compelling than the last. I took a LOT of photos. I'll start with some of the faces and try to update with more of his artwork soon.

I love the wire work on this.

Trip to Baja

I loved everything about the trip I took with Linda and Tom Hanson down to San Felipe, Baja.
The art work we saw ranged from the sublime, like the image above, to the ridiculous, like the image below.

The colors in Mexico are amazing. Everything is so intense.

Lots of textures.

It is all very inspiring. I'm hoping we can go to Baja for field trips on some of the art retreats Linda is planning. :)

Take another look at that first photo. You see this sort of recycled artwork everywhere. I can see where Micheal DeMeng gets some of his inspiration.
