As an artist I have the desire to tell the story of my paintings. I will be posting my art with the story next to it,so people can understand my inspiration at the time of painting it.

" Western Buddha "
It is difficult to paint at the house, little space to display all the art stuff, but now and then I manage to finish a painting.
My friend Patricia and I are trying hard to rent the space we had two years ago. We really worked hard over there and produced a lot.
It is incredible how the mind speaks through my artist fingers.I was amazed when I saw what came out in my last painting.
A BUDDHA..my whole body was claiming some meditation.
Thanks to the outcome of this painting I started looking for a space to meditate and I found one.

Why is it so difficult to update everything

Our lives are directed by the media exposure.
 It is our mails, more than one, Messenger, Facebook and all the other sites that we are into.

This year I decided not to work full time to have time for myself.
  I have updated my www.fineartamerica.com web site, I open that site every day and connect with discussions with other artists, I am glad I am doing it.

 I am also trying to sell at www.zazzle.com/active2*, this is fun, trying to place designs into some clothes and other household goods that they have.

I also engaged with www.spoonflower.com after realizing that my last designs would look nice into fabric. Made some swatches and left my design to sell there.

It has been really busy but I have not neglected my art.

I have drawn some hands, then I placed them on the computer and did some effects on them, finally I used the original drawing to do an artwork that resulted in "Rage behind close doors"

Might be I saw something on TV that led me to this work! who knows!

Digital Painting

Digital Painting came to me some years ago when I first started learning Photoshop and Illustrator.
I have taken new courses two months ago and have started a new series of paintings.
I have a whole new collection of them, I presented 4 of them last month at the New York Affordable art fair,
I really enjoy doing them and would very much like to take them to a new level.

Working on it.!!!

After one year

It has been one year since I wrote on this blog.
I was really mortified the last time when I could not upload my pictures, I have worked a lot during last year.
I continued my painting but I also took new courses on Digital Painting which I also love.

These two paintings are the last ones on my collection of indigenous art.

Southern Cross is made over Wall Paper, painted over with acrylics and the cross made out of leather.

Indian Trail was made over canvas, painted with acrylics and it was my first time using gold painting to give it a touch of richness to it. It has leather and wood added to it as well.
