RIO AFTER CARNIVAL
Acrylic on paper
People from all corners of the world converge on Rio for two weeks of Carnival. This painting conveys the connections, closeness of cultures, and harmony of different groups. A colorful festival fed by a crowd of masked revelers who have escaped to Rio to indulge their carnal senses, deny their inhibitions, and tap into the human soul, releasing the wellspring of forbidden desires that lay deep within.
