Jessica Torres

Luis Navarro y Maximo

Acrylic on drum

This portrait captures a mutual connection experienced between a human being and an animal, which can sometimes parallel the love and sacrifices made between a father and a son, a line that can span from California to Michoacan, Mexico.

    • Jessica, I love how this turned out! It was incredible watching you in the process of painting. I especially love the closeness the audience can feel despite a first read of the exterior details, including his facial expression and the distance separating them. From the way that his torso is angled towards the horse and his hand is ready to reach out, the connection you speak of in your description is apparent but subtle.
