Description: Alfonso is a young struggling artist in Mexico who brings his artwork to Arizona periodically in order to be sold at the Art One Gallery in Scottsdale. In this particular piece he shows one of the locals dressed in a party hat and holding a stick. The chicken in the right hand corner signifies the chicken that everybody chases and tries to catch in order to win a prize. One of the most interesting features of this painting (besides the vibrant colors) is the fact that the wrist-watch is being worn by the shirtless local.
