This beautiful painting created by Antonio Broccoli Porto, titled, Loíza a Osun (along with Samuel Lind’s portrait of the Queen of the Taíno tribe) is my favorite. It is a portrait of a Bomba dancer in Loíza, Puerto Rico. Porto used acrylic on canvas to do his interpretation of the English painter & sculptor, Sir Frederic Leighton‘s ‘Flaming June‘ which Leighton used oil on canvas.
I love the colors in both artists paintings every time I look at these two paintings. Here are a few photos of some flowers I took earlier this summer that I found similar color pallets painted by mother nature herself.
To view and/or purchase Porto’s paintings you can go to his site, Studio Porto and Sir Leighton’s painting, Flaming June currently resides at the Ponce Museum of Art.
