On Our Lady of Guadalupe day (not MY Lady of Guadalupe!), Suzan and I were touring The Plaza when we found James' work. It's in the lobby area at the entrance to Art Under the Arches gallery around the corner of the Visitors' Center.
Roderick's rich colors vividly capture the pathos that surrounds this iconic figure. But it's his unique take on the gal that makes the work interesting: Our Lady astride a Harley; warming her hands at a campfire; contemplating her likeness on candles.
Approx 14 w x 24 h
He also has a coloring book.
Roderick's had a long-term interest in goddesses and has painted images from Buddhist and Hindu mythologies as well.
