El Musico, Card #32
¡Hola! If you've ever played Loteria, the popular Mexican bingo game, then you know this is The Musician. But not any musician, because this is my interpretation of the famous, original Don Clemente card series. I'm sure it's inspired in part by a visitor to my studio (a lot of musicians come in). It's 9 x 12, acrylic on canvas, and available at The Cactus Gallery NOW. And if you've never played Loteria, then here's a little tip on how it's done. Every player gets a card (like a bingo card) with images on it, and there's a host who calls out the card, usually by rhyming a poem. You put a bean on every image that's called out. The winner is the first player that shouts "¡Buena!" or "¡Lotería!" right after completing a tabla or a previous agreed pattern: row, column, diagonal, or a pozo.
