Story Behind the Painting

This sultry painting is of the the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven (Catedral Metropolitana de la Asunción de la Santísima Virgen María a los cielos) in downtown Mexico City. I loved the juxtaposition of the succulent yucca plants in front of the old and brittle building structure.
