This brightly colored painting makes you want to visit this village in Mexico and get away from the traffic and hectic pace of city life. The work is signed Davie Diaz. I’ve researched this artist, and there are two David Diaz artists, but they are both American and the original purchaser of the painting wrote on the back that it was purchased in Mexico in 1970. I haven’t been able to find a Davie Diaz who would have been from Mexico. The purchaser also refers to it as a pastel, but it appears to be a watercolor. It may be a mixed media, with some pastel, but mainly watercolor.
The overall framed piece measures 21” tall and 17 ¾” wide; the painting, as seen, measures 12 3/8” tall and 9 ¼” wide. The painting appears to be in very good condition. The frame is nice with steel-blue-green and bronze distressed features; there are a few rub marks on the frame, but in overall good condition. The piece is double matted with a blue-green mat and a burlap mat. The dust cover on the back is brittle and torn across the top; there are also water stains, but they appear to be on the frame and no evidence of moisture in on the artwork itself. There is non-glare glass protecting the artwork, which adds to the substantial weight of this piece. The art was framed by a reputable and upscale frame shop in Wichita Falls, Robinson Galleries, as marked on the dust cover.
