Moises Nostra Vega is a Mexican American artist based in Dallas, Texas.  Born in Monclova Vieja, Coahuila De Zaragoza, Mexico, most of his work is has to do with Mexican culture, history, etc. and he’s only been painting for the last year or so.  

He has created (or is still creating) four paintings based on photographs I took during my 2012 trip to Juventino Rosas.  The image of the painting shown is the latest in the series and was inspired by this photograph.  The painting is not yet finished, I’ll post an update when it’s done. 

It’s an honor to have an artist create a painting(s) based on photos that I took. Humbling and flattering at the same time.  Even better is I have gotten to know Moises and consider him a friend. 

I’ve taken a few snapshots of him at various art events we’ve both attended and I’m planning to do a formal portrait of him very soon.

This photo means a lot to me. This little girl and her family live on the same street where I was staying and prior to the parade I was sitting on the curb fiddling with my camera and noticed her playing nearby.  She was curious as she cautiously approached me and showed some interest in what I was doing.  I began showing her all of the photos I had taken in her town and even though we couldn’t use language to communicate we were able to speak to each other looking at the images I had taken.  
She was with her parents in the parade In this photo and as she recognized me she paused briefly to smile for a picture as they walked by.
