I made 6 frames for 8X8 canvas paintings. They are going into a media room at a church as a part of an advanced Girl-Scouts service project. I like the idea all the way around and I couldn’t resist adding my touch. I hope they go perfect with the paintings. I hope the artists get to pick out the one they feel compliments their paintings. I hope I get to see the framed art. ;)
When I was building these frames, I started to hear some music. Much of it was music from my youth as I spent my time working with some upholsterers in El Paso Texas. The radio was always on their favorite channel. They whistled, sang and fired their staple guns to the music. Much of the music was sung and played by Mariachis. I can remember one of the guys would get into the music and yell out Aye, Aye, Aye Aye, Aye in that familiar piercing falsetto voice that was right on the money.
Think about this for a moment, where have you seen and heard the Mariachis perform? If the answer is no-where then pick your favorite music genre and ride along.
Wedding or Boda?
Sweet 16 or Quinciniera?
Bar or Cantina?
I miss some of the things I grew up with although you would never guess that a teenager from the 70’s looks back on anything that was NON-ROCK-and-ROLL fondly. To be sure, I hated that music back then. Now? I’d love to sit down with those guys in a Cantina while drinking some domestic (for Mexico) beer.
I hope the Church media room get’s along with the Mariachis. Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye!!!!
Thanks for taking a look.
