Like Water For Roses

acrylic, 8/2019
A Mexican cafe scene with a singer in the background. I really liked the turquoise color of the furniture. I added a cup of roses and a glass of water, which are significant for the title. Mexico has beautiful rivers, waterfalls, and springs with turquoise color water coming from manganese and calcium carbonate in limestone. At the same time, there is water scarcity and contamination everywhere. I wanted to express the beauty and preciousness of water through a table where food and drink is served.
