Dulces de tamarindo—my favorite childhood treat. Sprung from its deep roots in my Hispanic heritage is a delicacy that’s reminiscent of visits to
the Mercado, road trips to Mexico, family fiestas and my beloved abuelito.
Painting is an enjoyable pleasure for me in much the same way. It’s the process one goes through on the way towards a delightful indulgence.
And, just like the tamarindo seed, there is something left behind that can be planted and grown—a personal masterpiece of the soul to be enjoyed by all.
