I was asked what "Zapodorada" means.  

This is a legitimate question as the word makes no sense in Spanish, English nor any other language. So, here's the story. The image was originally titled, "Shoe". Pretty exciting, eh? So, I renamed it, "Shoe Under Golden Light". In Spanish, that translates to, Un zapato debajo de la luz dorada. 

Now, though it's not unusual to have long titles (I have a work with a much longer name), Un zapato debajo de la luz dorada is cumbersome, so I took the zap and o from zapato and added the dorada. Ergo: Zapodorada. And anyway, it's my birthday and I can name it whatever I like.    

As Edith Ann would say, 

Zapodorada is showing in the exhibition currently at the Gray Loft Gallery in Oakland until August 12, 2016.
