“Everywhere He Ever Walked”, acrylic on canvas, 36″ x 30″


“Everywhere He ever walked” views the Santo Niño de Atocha as the patron saint of the Mexican American experience. He is the traveler who walks the path of Mexican migration through the desert, along the Tierra Adentra, the US highways and urban centers of the U.S. to offer comfort and hope for those who appeal to Him for help. “Everywhere He ever walked” appears on the book cover jacket of Crossing Borders with the Santo Niño de Atocha by Juan Javier Pescador, published by the University of New Mexico Press, 2009. The painting was also exhibited at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago in 2009.
