Tamale Lady Wall Paper Swatch

2019 acrylic on canvas. The painting pays homage to all the tamale ladies that inhabit random parking lots. Image humorously turns them into subjects for a possible wallpaper to decorate one's home. Size is 2' x 4'
A childhood memory from a mysterious woman who danced like a cat shamelessly and came to my Tia Nellie's many interesting parties.
