Starting with these geranium paintings, I began to draw flowers from memory. Recalling playing with my cousin at my aunt’s garden, plucking the dry leaves and petals from geranium plants, mix them with water and dirt “haciendo brujeria”... (“playing witchcraft...”)
The title of the painting is a phrase my cousin would tell me before playing.
