New York State Of Mind No.34

Just in recent “Turn of the Century” from 1993 to 2003, more or less, I was using religious images as a main theme for my art. 
For the last ten years I have been working on some other subjects.
Few months ago I made a drawing of a cuban “Saint Lazarus” for a dear friend that happens to be ‘Irish’…and wanted to have it as a permanent tattoo. 
My drawing is now a tattoo on one of his legs…and today is “Babalú Day”…same as in “Baba-Lucy…Ricardo”…that all of us know!

tertulia is a social gathering with literary or artistic overtones, especially in Iberia or Latin America. The word is originally Spanish, and has only moderate currency in English, in describing Latin cultural contexts. It is rather similar to a salon, but a typical tertulia in recent centuries has been a regularly scheduled event in a public place such as a bar, although some tertulias are held in more private spaces, such as someone's living room. Participants may share their recent creations (poetry, short stories, other writings, even artwork or songs). Usually (but not always) the participants in a regularly scheduled tertulia are, in some respects, likeminded, whether by having similar politics, similar literary tastes, etc.

En una visita que hice al pintor cubano Cepp Selgas, que vive en el Upper West Side de Manhattan, al pie de los Cloisters, me tomaron esta foto; una de esas imágenes que capta, más que el contorno objetivo de las cosas, la proyección intangible de las almas...
