Roscoe Todd Karns, Castillo in La Plaza, Ajijic, Oil on Canvas, 1971


Priced in Mexican Pesos. (Rocky) T. Karns, "Castillo in La Plaza", Ajijic, Oil on Canvas, 1971,  Affectionately known as Rocky, Roscoe Todd Karns was a child actor best remembered for playing George Bailey's younger brother, Harry Bailey, in the 1946 film It's a Wonderful Life.

Born in 1921 in Hollywood, he died in 2000 in Ajijic. 

In 1971 he retired to Ajijic with Kate,  his beloved wife.

If the dating is correct on this work, it would have been done the year he arrived in Ajijic.  It would not surprise anyone if he was impressed enough by the local custom of burning fireworks towers (known as Castillos) in the plaza for the annual Ajijic Saints' celebrations every November.  (Fiestas de San Andres)

26" by 38" signed dated lower left. In the original, very simple frame consistent with his primitive style of painting. (From the Estate of Hubert Harmon, a fellow painter in the Ajijic Clique group).
