Forever Young at Art Center

There is no doubt that Toti Cerda is a master of watercolor. His children playing with and in the water are competition classics. In Forever Young, children at play are his subjects (as always, so it seems, but who's tired of it?). There at attempts to achieve a more contemporary feel in some of the larger pieces: flat solid backgrounds, fictitious URLs running across the canvas, titles within the composition.

let's play!

But my three favorite pieces (technically 11), to my own surprise, are these square acrylic paintings, with the backgrounds built in very thin layers like watercolor. I felt an inexplicable joy. Wish I could be a little girl again.
