    Tish

    This is another of my music posters. I liked my last venture and thought I´d keep at it for a bit. Not completely satisfied with this one, but here it is. (Just squint a bit). If you find the commentary and the music links irritating, just let me know.


    Tish Hinojosa, born and raised in San Antonio, TX, is the daughter of Mexican immigrants—the youngest of 13 children. I figure most of you don´t know her, except for maybe Sklyar, a Texas boy . She´s a Tejana folk singer who moves between English and Spanish in her lyrics. Some of her music is very political (e.g., dealing with the life of migrant farm workers), some is just good country/folk. One of her best Spanish-language albums is Sońar del laberinto (Dreaming from the labyrinth).


    I include a few links below if you´re interested.

    “Manos y huesos y sangre” (a great piece about Frida Kahlo and about art in general)

    I think this is a wonderful painting Scott, love the colours and the atmosphere. Listened to the links you kindly left and my favourite one is “Banderas del sol, I do enjoy listening to country music and have many cds but not any of hers. I found it like your painting very refreshing.

    Interesting and very effective style how to bring the attention to the poster. Very lovely and her singing is really comming from her heart and her soul. Thanks letting her known to us. Love the spanish and am learning it also...but...laziness many times overtakes me... uhm....
