Art is here!
Art is what you make it, how you see it and your general attitude towards life and living. Ever notice that negative people don't seem to appreciate anything that's around them?
If you open your eyes and get rid of the crap that is all around us you can then only see what is really important.
I could go on and on but then you already know, since you are taking your precious time to read this blog.
The photo I took from an artist, a local artist who displayed his work at the plaza on the Day of the Dead about 4 years ago. I enjoyed it so much that I purchased the work and was eagerly looking for him the next year.
Where did he go?
Did he not see that others appreciated his toils?
As most artists did he have to stop practicing and do other things to feed his family?
Sad, I was anxious to see and support him.
There is a lot of talent here in Michoacan. The best handman guitars are created here.
superb copper work
meticulously made baskets are wooven
and so few people really get to see it all!
