Titled: The way you… remember me




Made in 140lb  watercolor paper  about 12” by 18”  The time spent on this painting is worth it, standing proud on the canvas with a realistic look an inviting pose, happy to be able and share it.

please note: camera muted some of the colors, the shot was then taken in a slanted angle.

Wile working on miniatures, other watercolors that need touchups and rework

watercolor flower painting poppy




Watercolor flower poppy 22” by 30” 

The  goal for this one was to incorporate  movement with in the flower by adding extra petals, abstraction and form combined with high color loaded with energy and intensity, the flower was positioned off center for a better view.

But not all this is just mainly technical there’s a lot of feelings in to them, painting just to paint…don’t think so… But painting with feelings, good energy, perhaps memories or conversations… makes it more interesting.

~The artist in a room full of people he or she is the one in a corner making notes, sketching and observing… everything is interesting an never boring.

Oil painting beach girl




Heavy textured oil painting of a girl sun bathing at the beach on a canvas panel, the sketch is 8” by 10” incorporating different objects to make this an interesting piece, having fun with the bristles and the use of a painting knife for some areas. Painting is happy, drying at the moment.

Hope you are having fun this summer!

and the song goes… she had an… itsie bitsie …..

Oil painting study



Bailando tango

The not so simple task of composition in a developing  painting, some come out as paintings some don’t make it… but the idea is passed on to the next, at the moment re arrange or positioning the figures in the case of the sketch, 9” by 8” how both subjects interact with each other is important.  The idea for the next oil painting.  After, the 20” watercolor is finished, put on hold for the past weeks since my health being on a storm.


Explaining in details  the technical part of painting is important, gives an idea to the viewer about the research, time dedicated and value.
