FACT: I found this wonderful religious, surrealistic, naive painting hiding in the back of an antique store. It is unsigned, except for the name of San Luis Potosi, which is a city in Northeastern Mexico, so I'm assuming it's a Mexican oil, painted by a very talented visionary, primitive Catholic artist.
I'm interpreting, so feel free to do so yourself. It looks to me that it's about the Garden of Gethsemane, the tree with the forbidden fruit, the serpent, and the sin entering the world in the form of those solid lethal looking raindrops and that scarey X like icon coming down from the skies. It's that X that really makes me love this painting. It's a story, in the story.
If you like symbolism, surrealism, and primitive art, you may love this painting.
No need to frame it. It's on stretched canvas and in good shape, just one area that looks stretched from something leaning on it. It will stretch out with a little steam.

FICTION: Carlos was losing weight. Eating made him feel guilty. Every human need made him run to confession. He painted all night long, trying to free himself through art. He prayed to be released from his desires for pastries, rum, and the touch of Consuelo. In his dreams, just as Consuelo was about to remove the first article of clothing, the serpent entered, the heavens opened and the red weapon descended to obliterate him.
