Now that i'm retired…

Now that i'm retired i have dedicated myself fully to painting the setting of the current Chicano movement with no reason to stop me and every reason to push foward...My pieces literally grab you,move you and are as vocal as my vibrant personality.With each canvas touching on different aspects of Chicanismo,The day of the dead skeletons express the acknowledgement of those who came & went before me & their spirit which lives on in the movement today.
