Hello dear Alyson and sweet friends!
Here I am joining this great and really fun party, I always look so forward to Alyson's challenge ideas for "Favorites on the First," as it's always so enjoyable and interesting to see what we all come up with and this one is great, about our favorite artwork at home. Although I have many paintings and favorites.. and it was very difficult for me to choose a few, I certainly did. Hope you like them too.
|The beautiful calla oil painting at your left was made by a famous uncle of Alejandro, Luis Crespo O., who died in Spain in 2004 at almost 100 years old.|
|Another beautiful painting by Alejandro's uncle, which I keep in the dining room and I need to change the frame to something more modern and elegant.|
|This oil portrait of our granddaughters when they were very young, was painted by a young discapasitated artist, who has become famous all over Latin America and maybe Europe, since he has won many awards and first places in many countries, because he has no hands and paints with his "mouth." I placed the link here so you can check this special artist. My Mil when she was alive, promoted his talent because this boy was the son of her cleaning lady. Isn't Santiago Guillermo amazing and so talented..and with his mouth!!!|
|The last painting is an antique, of course; Colonial Virgin Mary, with original frame and all, that my Mil gave us when we first got married, back in 1975, so I've always had it for 38 years now and I love her. The right end of the frame is broken, but I have the piece, I have to take it so it gets restored professionally, as I never could glue it on!|
Here you have some of my favorite paintings from my house and I'm thanking lovely Alyson for her terrific party: FAVORITES ON THE FIRST at, http://thepolohouse.blogspot.com and I can't wait to go visit the friends that have join today!
