A glimpse of  Mexican culture we see so often in Texas; beautiful dresses, exciting music and lots of fun.

This is my tribute to Frida, of the phenomenal Swedish pop group, Abba. It’s from the video for “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” which is on their Arrival album.

Even though I love watercolor art I haven’t used that media in decades, maybe since college. I decided to give it a try. I looked in the cabinet and found a typical, school art class tray of Crayola watercolors; 8 colors. The box has my son’s name on it. I’m not sure if it’s from his high school days or junior high.

OK, let’s do something a little different.

This is what you might call “accidental art.” Some of you won’t call it art at all. But I like it.

Older folks will remember the mimeograph machine. You wrapped a stencil around a big drum, turned the drum, fed paper in one side, ink would be forced through the stencil and a printed sheet of paper would magically come out the other side. Eventually, technology advanced to the point where you didn’t have to hand-crank the thing.

When you were done printing you’d cautiously take the inky stencil off. If you might print more copies later you’d carefully lay the stencil on the original backing sheet.

Various random images would remain on the backing sheet after you took the stencil away. Here’s one that, for some reason, I saved.
