Some time ago I wrote a post about an original work of art that I bought in Mérida, Mexico. The picture was done in colored pencil by a local artist by the name of Luis Coral, and it portrays a Mayan woman with her daughter asleep in a hammock. Unfortunately, it has been tucked away in a closet for over five years. I wanted to get it reframed and re-matted, and finally last month I got around to taking it in to a framing shop. The beautiful picture is now hanging in my room.
I also found tucked away a couple of small prints by the same artist that I had bought on another trip to Mérida. I took those in to be framed also, and they are now hanging next to the larger picture.
I also brought out an original watercolor which I had purchased a few years ago from a friend who is a talented artist. Although the painting is of an Italian scene, it could just as easily be of Mexico, and fits in very well with the motif of the room. I hung that one also, although I think that I will take it in to be reframed... probably a black frame to go along with the other artwork.
