A Cigar for Your Thoughts: Loteria Red Box #77 El Puro
I created this piece for a call out from the Arte De La Vida Gallery in Tucson. They specialize in Vintage Mexican art. The show was centered around the Mexican Loteria bingo cards. This show was to re create the cards from the Red Box set from the 1950's sold only in Mexico. It was not as popular as other sets and was quickly discontinued so the sets are quite rare today. Each artist drew a number from a hat and that number was the card that you were to re create. I got the cigar which showed a single cigar against a green background. I chose to have fun with it....The show runs through Nov 21 2023
