Dia de Guadalupe 3

July 11, 2014

Most of the boys dressed like Juan Diego, the peasant who first saw the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.  He wore the typical loose pants and a tunic in a bleached muslin.  This young boy also wore bleached cotton pants  & tunic but with this  beautifully coloured vest on top.  Surprise, surprise – I was attracted to the colour.  His straw hat was decorated with some crepe paper and a photo of the Virgin.  Who could resist painting those big dark eyes.   They do seem to pull people into the painting.
