FATIMA RONQUILLO

"These jewel-like paintings intuitively fuse different aesthetic traditions, folk art and old master, with natural grace and an uncanny quality that may be a species of magic." —American Arts Quarterly

I have just released the first paintings for 2014 at the Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They are also the first of the works to be included for my upcoming solo show at the gallery in June. Two of the four have sold immediately before I can post this but “Girl with Yellow Finch” and “Smoker” are still available.

Dorabella

“Dorabella” 12×9 inches, oil on panel @ Meyer Gallery, Park City SOLD

I’ve always loved the name “Dorabella.” I was painting this while listening to Mozart’s opera “Cosi Fan Tutte” ~ and it was natural to name this piece “Dorabella” after one of the characters. I think that “Dorabella” means “beautiful” (bella) “gift” (dora.)
