Last month I took part in a gallery exhibition with an Indian theme. This month the theme is Mexico. I thought it would be quite easy to get inspiration but have to admit it was a real struggle. I didn't want to do the typical Frida Calho paintings that people would expect from an exhibition like this. After much reading and google searching on the subject I decided to use Chihuahuas as my inspiration since they are native to Mexico. They are such cute dogs and it was a lot of fun painting them.
The first painting I did was with Chihuahuas only. I love the red jumper and also added the flowers as a fun element.
Original oil on board 40x60cm
I decided to do a Frida painting after all but also added the chihuahua and flowers just to add another elements to the painting.
