If you’ve been to San Xavier Mission, you’ve experienced his skills. He helped in the restoration. His mural commissions include St. Mary’s Hospital, Casa Molina North restaurant and the offices of Surgical Associates. His work also graces the private collections of many prominent Tucsonans and of former first lady Pat Nixon. Many charitable groups have raised funds by auctioning paintings donated by Romo.
Thanks Al - Apolonio Hernandez Romo.
Here is an image from a recent posting from Mary Hess. Thank you Mary for sharing this delightful watercolor with us!
Nancy Alexander Koff has also contributed another Al Romo painting. This one is titled on the back: "San Ignacio" Kino Mission in Sonora near Magdalena, Mexico - Romo '73. Thank you Nancy for sharing another Al Romo treasure with us!
Here is another Al Romo's treasures found in a Tubac, Arizona estate sale by Hilda Dorgan. The subject should be easily recognizable to all as the San Xavier Mission historic Spanish Catholic mission located about 10 miles south of downtown Tucson, Arizona, on the Tohono O'odham San Xavier Indian Reservation. Thank you Hilda for sharing this with us!
