Thanks for the tour. 

Love them all. 

The one in the center looks like a Mondrian.

I love the variety...from the vibrant colors to the black and white photographs.  You can truly feel the passion of the Latino people.  You have such great photos and insight into so many things to do in Carlsbad.

Lenn - that was my thought as well. Glad you enjoyed it - I need to go back and spend more time looking instead of taking pics. There was also one was that rather Daliesque.

Diane - well the photos do not do them justice, but the compliment is appreciated.

Hi Jeff, That first one you posted is outstanding!!! How great is it that you have this type of local gallery at your fingertips? I love visiting the local galleries and meeting artists, it kinda clears the head static.

Art transcends does it not?   Thanks for posting Jeff.  I'm serious too.  Going through an art gallery or experiencing some really cool art anywhere takes me to a different place and changes my mind for the better.
