I have had the good fortune to speak to Elias while he was working about our mutual love of painting. He is a local Melaque Mexico resident and after working at his family's restaurant 6 days a week, he has taught himself to paint in the summers. Elia invited Ross, Sue and I to come to his parents' house to see his paintings. Well we were treated to freshly cut coconut, with the juice and meat with lime, salt and hot sauce and local tiny bananas that tasted like candy. This certainly felt like an event for us. Elias has a very good command of English so we were free to ask lots of questions about his art, family, food and life. What a wonderful time spent ON HIS ONLY DAY OFF! @eliasangel1977
I did not realize that the photo above captured more of the street reflections than his painting until I got home, my apologies. All Elias paintings are of what he seas and loves, the ocean, surrounding land and water life. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing of your beautiful artwork Elias, we had a wonderful and memorable time!!!
