The Queen’s Art Inspiration

Toller Cranston

Toller Cranston, RIP

I am a self-taught artist and learned some techniques from Toller Cranston, a famous Olympic skater and artist, while visiting San Miguel. Overlapping colors and layers of paint shows a more dramatic look.  His home, full of art, was just magnificent. I will never forget the way he invited us into his home and shared his love of art. Several of my Red Hat friends purchased paintings that day. I feel indebted to the Art gallery personnel for arranging the tour. We had a most enjoyable time and celebrated with margaritas.

Friends on Art Tour

I love the bold colors of Mexico and love using that platform to interpret Pop Art in my paintings. I discovered the interest while on vacation in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. There the culture of the people is simple and fun. I love whimsical figures and putting it onto canvas is satisfying to me as an artist.

Dia de Muertos

Day of the Dead by Queen Rose

I will be traveling back to San Miguel next year and hope to add to my list of intriguing ideas. Sometimes you have to look and find art in secret places.

Travel with me to find your niche and tell me how you get creative. I want to hear and learn from you. Do you have a comment on Day of the Dead that you would like to share? I love the annual events that have at Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment with alters set up for love ones. I participate in the event each year and my best bud and I enjoy the outing with full dress. We will be looking for statues and other items on our trip in February 2016. Life is good!
