Frida y Miguel

Frida y Locuras!
By checking out a Local Events post in San Antonio this morning I learned of a local Frida show on July 9. I was not aware of this show and am exuberant to learn of this showing and discussion group. Gracias for allowing me the format to write and share one of my top passions of many. I will definitely try to attend.
It may have been about 1968, when I first learned of Frida. The more I learned of her the more she consumed me. I know many persons enjoy and love her. I truly identify with her in many levels; besides her talent, I especially admire her free-spirit and her ability to laugh at life in a body and heart riddled with pain.
I have had the good fortune of attending several Frida art shows in Berkeley, San Fransisco, Los Angeles and Mexico City. I have also seen, been gifted and purchased a few custom made pieces. My favorite artist is Mi Famigo, Miguel Vazquez of Whittier. I have had a beautiful relationship with him and his wife, Linda for many years.

Mi Corazon and I were having a winemaker dinner at a local Paso Robles restaurant named Paris. Sad to say, Chef Claude is no longer in Paso Robles and is managing a restaurant in Paris, France. He was a phenomenal chef specializing in French cuisine.
i noticed them from across the restaurant. I went up to their table and introduced myself and we have loved each other since. They enjoy our wine and I luv his Frida art. Miguel later drew up several Hug labels and a few other art projects for us. I have many art pieces by him. He is so humble and talented. My utmost respect and love to both Miguel and Linda. Allow me share some of Miguel’s Art displayed in my home studio.
Abrazos y Besos

I am perpetually creative, and my eyes “feel” art everywhere. Who am I, I am an open book. I believe that sharing “from the heart” with one another is what connects us, heals us, and inspires us! My love for my Lord, family, friends, cooking, crafting, gardening/nature, vintage, sewing and different cultures; these passions and too many more to list, have moved my hand to paper, thus, Abrazos y Besos. In addition to a nudge by my baby sister, Dudies. My last name is Hug which means Abrazo in Spanish, hence the name of my blog: “Abrazos y Besos” translating to “Hugs & Kisses.” I will focus on our personal life journey with Mi Corazon (Augie Hug) sprinkled with love, spice and fun. Please tune in. Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV) 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
