30 x 40 Oil on canvas
The Flamboyan is a beautiful tropical tree that grows in the island of Puerto Rico. This tree is inspired by my father's friendship to artist/painter Wichie Torres. After my fathers passing, I was fortunate to meet my fathers friend, Wichie. After a night of good drinks, heart warming stories and admiring his personal gallery, Wichie gave me a beautiful Giclee print of the Flamboyan. This was a symbolic moment to me, I was deeply touched by this gift, it represented to me, Wichie's immeasurable friendship and love for my dad. After returning home from Puerto Rico I immersed myself into this painting...in memory of my father.
