My Backyard Patio Makeover: A Mexican Tile Inspired Painting

When I was working on my backyard I knew I could fill it with furniture and pillows to add color and pattern to the space, but it would still be surrounded by lots of wood fencing that isn’t very nice to look at.  So, I decided to create a large painting to fill some of the wall space.  I have always been inspired by painted Talavera tiles from Mexico.  So, I created a painting based on  this tile.
