On May 22, 2011 at 12:55 pm I began to paint this image of the goddess Coaltlique (she is mother of gods and the goddess of death and rebirth) [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coatlicue]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C oatlicue[/url]
and I combined Coatlicue with the Virgin of Guadalupe. At 2;30 pm a tornado came though our neighborhood in North Minneapolis destroying hundreds of homes. Killing two people and injuring dozens more. Miraculously, our home was not damaged. Perhaps the goddess and the virgin protected us.
The painting will be in a group show "Grupo Soap del Corazoan " .
the exhibition is titled "El Milagro " at Intermedia Arts
2822 South Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis. The show opens on August 3rd the actual opening night is Saturday night, August 20th, from 7-10 p.m. As with all Grupo Soap exhibitions, opening night will be a fiesta, filled with wonderful art, great music and food, intermingling cultures, lots of interesting people – and great joy that Grupo Soap has survived and prospered for over ten years.
