Amy and I give each other gifts on the first day of the month. My all time personal favorite gift that Amy gave me was a Remote Control Fart Machine. This month, I’m giving her a painting from Emilio Lobato, one of our favorite artists, which I just picked up from the William Havu Gallery in Denver.
This 60” x 60” beaut is titled Vestido en Soledad which – according to Google Translate Spanish to English – means “Dress in Solitude.” If you’ve ever been to my office or my house, you’ll see plenty of Lobato’s hanging around. Of course, one of my favorite things about his paintings is that he makes me think of Emilio Lizardo from The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai. Happy April 1st Amy.
