The name is a rough translation of "Me he de comer esa tuna aunque me espine la mano", from a folk mexican song.
I painted this a La Prima, I could not reisist the soft tones of this standing on a fruit bowl in my kitchen. There was light comming from neary every corner of the kitchen, so I took it as a challenge. For those who does´nt know a Prickly Pear is a fruit from a cactus, very sublte flavor. The rest of the painting are small pink, potatos and a grapefruit
