While doing some research on Mexican muralistÂ JosÃ© Clemente Orozco for a series I’d like to do do later on, I came across this post by Gabriela on another Mexican artist,Â Alfredo Ramos MartÃnez.Â I enjoyed learning more about this painter and seeing his works which oftenÂ depicted indigenous women, especially as flower vendors.Â The indigenous woman is presented as beautiful, delicate and yet still strong and determined.Â The recurring flower motif and use of earthy oranges and yellows, caught my attention.

Such a beautiful use of color, especially that warm, earthy shade of yellow.
That’s what caught my attention too.
It’s like if you touch it, it would feel like warmed adobe.
I like that comparison!
Thank you! ðŸ˜Š
