Art of the Day: “Good Friday” By Tony Mendoza

Tony Mendoza captures the hispanic tradtion during Good Friday or “Viernes Santo.’ A word fro the artist:

“Viernes Santos” (Good Friday) Painting created in 2004…a depiction based on childhood memories of that most solemn of days in Little Havana..the mother prepares the traditional Bacalao (Cod Fish) for supper…the children are bored since playing, television and listening to music where all prohibited . Older neighbor ladies garbed in the then traditional black dress for older ladies …with lace mantillas are on route to mass with an umbrella to protect them from the strong tropic sun. -Tony Mendoza
