Painting - Archival Quality Giclee Print On Canvas
Margarita art in the still life motif featuring a frozen margarita with chips, salsa and mariachi figurines. Bar art created for this series of paintings was initially inspired by a trip to Cabo San Lucas. The "Cervezas y Nachos" painting was the first in the series followed "Mariachi Margarita" and ultimately the remaining Hawaii inspired pieces in the series.
The Margarita art presented here was created by Steve Simon from a staged still life. You will notice that all the major elements in the painting are physically connected or "touch" their neighbor. This is a typical still life tactic used to suggest integration of each with the whole. In this margarita painting the tactic is employed to connect the variety of Mexican cultural elements under the umbrella of the experience of enjoying a margarita. The margarita rises above the other elements, leaving little doubt that she is the lead actor on this stage.
