Solliday creates an homage to Old California ranchero life, the Hacienda, and its Mexican roots. The fiesta colors of red, yellow, turquoise and orange bring to mind a celebration of western heritage and culture. The subject focuses on the traditions of farming, weaving, pottery, and craftsmanship—skillfully portrayed in the handling of textures ranging from smooth peppers to a woven wool blanket. The worn sombrero conveys a message of dedication to working outdoors with one's hands.
