Portrait of Guacamole, 2016


Oil on canvas, 30×40

In this portrait of guacamole, everything we love about Washington DC unites brilliantly. Set against a backdrop of history, the food scene in this iconic city provides the perfect marriage of cultures; intersections of American portraiture and Mexican cuisine near Chinatown. Just as a perfect bowl of guacamole, flavors of people in this city collide and the combination in Washington is pure magic.
