Don’t be afraid to look in the mirror!!!




In memory of beloved Mexican screenwriter, actor, comedian, film director, television director, playwright, songwriter, and author Roberto Gómez Bolaños aka Chespirito. He will live forever in our hearts through the iconic characters he created and portrayed: El Chavo del Ocho, El Chapulin Colorado, La Chilindrina, Kiko.

Chespirito died Nov 28, 2014 of heart failure in Cancún, Quintana Roo, he was 85 years old.

I was inspired by Chespirito and his characters, you can see my paintings in my Chespirito page ( ) of my website.

Thanksgiving Walking Dead

This Norman Rockwell painting “Freedom From Want” aka “The Thanksgiving Picture” or “I’ll be home for Christhmas” is one of four paintings of Rockwell’s Freedom Series. The other three Freedoms are: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, and Freedom from Fear.

On this Thanksgiving Day I want to give thanks to Norman Rockwell  for his amazing talent.

“Art historically, Neo-Latinoism stands as the 21st Century’s first Hispanic art movement.  Thanks to Villarreal’s enlightened revival of Neo-Latinoism, the possibility of an artistic community linked by cultural solidarity is growing. Under Villarreal’s curatorial leadership, the second wave of the Neo-Latino art movement is being launched in winter 2014-2015 within County College of Morris’s new CCM Art Gallery, featuring cutting-edge images of social significance, imaginative visions, and strong visual vitality that are both archetypal and intrinsic to contemporary Latino community(ies) in the metropolitan area.”
