I created this piece a number of years ago but lost focus. Recently I was asked to frame one for a friend and rediscovered it's beauty. There are many layers in El Rustico including the use of dried flowers and insects. I find the insects over the summer, usually on the car windshield. They bring an extra magical touch; In a way finding new life in this piece of artwork. I want the viewer to be taken back to a summer setting, to a moment where the warm breeze kisses her face.
