THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Perhaps showcasing how the human form is just as natural as the plants that grow in the wild, the Mujer Y Cartuchos 5 Painting features a large bouquet of three oversized flowers being held by a woman of color, concealing part of her body. Her ultra long purple hair cascades behind her as if being carried by a breeze, and the only parts of her body that one can see are the curve of her hips and the swell of her breasts. The three flowers are cast in dark green, greenish-yellow and orange colors which look beautiful against her skin tone and hair.
