Okay, there are FAR from perfect but they were fun things to create... I'm trying to force myself to use more vibrant colours

They are all on wee 6" x 6" canvas' painted with acrylic.

As a Mexican fanatic of Lucha Libre I have to tell that I love your work. I like how you use bright colors for the back of all the paintings that remind me the Loteria cards. Fantastic job!

I LOVE the one with the orange background.  He makes me long for my little acrobatic, super speedy Rey Mysterio.

Thanks folks!

I kinda wish that there were Lucha things around these parts, but they are scarce. I have to rely on the web and youtube for all that goodness.

I love Lucha Libre since I was a little girl. I have some action figures of mi idols like "Perro Aguayo", "Blue Demon", "Dr. Wagner", etc. I also have a little boxing ring hanging on one of my walls. Right now, since we can watch American wrestling on national channels, our Lucha Libre it's changing in order to get more audience. In the 60's the figure of luchador was so important because of "Santo", who became a kind of superhero who fights against different kind of enemies, from drug dealers (or narcos) to classic horror monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Werewolves), aliens, etc.

Anyway, thank you, your work fueled my passion.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.
