Oaxaca, Mexico

This is a City of Colour, Murals & Art are everywhere.  I found inspiration all around.  The Cathedrals, the beautiful embroidery, patterns and rich history along with Clowns!

I also discovered a real connection between the Indigenous people of Oaxaca, the Zapotec and the Indigenous peoples of Saskatchewan.

I plan to continue with this stream of painting creating a body of work based on everyday lives and the similarities.
