Luchador Flock

Acrylic on canvas, 2018

Grackles are silly but also feisty. Thinking about their aggressive behavior led me to thinking of wrestling and Luchadores.  It is a theme that I have returned to over and over again for many reasons.  I love the vibrancy of the masks, the fun of combining two elements that do not naturally go together, and the fact that people enjoy them.
