Today I was inspired by my beautiful daughter and I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her by making her a painting. Her favorite flowers are the delicate peonies, I must admit I have never painted peonies for what I knew this was going to be a challenge. I thought about it for a while and I finally decided to approach it as an abstract painting which allowed me to be more loose and free without having to worry so much about the details and instead focus on capturing the essence of the flower. My daughter ended up loving it and that is all I can ask for.
My latest painting called “Fairy Tale” Mixed Media on stretched canvas, inspired by the tale of Sleeping Beauty. Original is available for purchase, prints soon to be produced.
|“I sit awake, watching you sleeping.
Ah, such beauty and extravagance.
The stars in the sky wilted and weeping,
Dimmen in light of your radiance.
The darkest eyes among the living.
A sweet smile coming of tender lips.
The aura of a goddess surrounds you giving-
A mere man of morals unwitting slips”
By Michael Anderson

You can purchase tickets for the event at the door. Hope to see you there!
I just got the latest prints of my painting “Souls”
In this painting I fused the styles of two of my favourite artists: Painter Gustav Klimt and Architect Antoni Gaudi. Is there anyone not familiar with the organic and spectacular work of Gaudi or the brilliant colors and textures that characterized Klimt’s work? Both of these artists were innovators ahead of their time. That was the inspiration that served as the backdrop for this painting. The main theme is feminine strength. The female figures conform to the architecture of the building almost like building blocks that represents the strength of a woman, as one and as many. Women build a united front of community despite the path each has walked in their own lives. The unity of the women cannot be held back by the trials and tribulations of life.
Limited edition prints available now for purchase
22” x 28” $119
Beautifully printed on Arches Aquarelle rag, pure white, textured paper and hand embellished by the artist.
Original painting is available, message me for details.
If you decided to ask your friends or family to describe art, what do you think they would say? Would it be the same definition across the board? Actually the answer that is it would be highly unlikely. Art is subjective and varies person to person. It is undefined and open to interpretation.
Walking through a museum on a Saturday afternoon I glanced at the gallery artwork and began to really think about the story behind the dynamic aesthetic of art. At one point certain artwork techniques were introduced to art community and met with some kind of resistance or doubt. Once upon a time it was all new. It Read More
Do you love art but need help with the execution? Maybe want to try a new technique? Delving into the world of technology and art fusion can be daunting and quickly overwhelming for first time users. We all face the initial “where do I start?” as well as the age old question of “how do I even do this?”Read More
Who am I? By now it may or may not have crossed your mind concerning the author of this blog. Well my fellow readers please let me enlighten you a little further about how I came to be here. I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a child I always had the urge to create and fascination with color.
I grew up in an impoverished home that couldn’t afford me the materials so I began to search for alternatives to use to create. I would search for materials from everyday things and turn them into the tools needed to execute what I wanted. I would use my skills and talents throughout grade school to make trades with my classmates or raise a little extra money on the side to buy more art supplies. When I was 18 I moved to the United States to be Read More
