Mexican Folk Art Painting - Amate Bark Painting

Just discovered this amazing art form while investigating images that would help inspire me in a birthday present I am creating for a friend. Above are my rough draft takes on it. At the very top are examples of the real thing. AMAZING! Wow. The colors are so bold and fantastic!

I know what you mean about art a case of it myself! Love the bark paintings, so vibrant and lively! It is always fun to try new things! Let me know if you get around to trying the welding, I have always been curious!
