@Regran_ed from @laspektator - “If there's no feeling, no meaning, say something
Did I mean something to you?
You show nothing, was it real?
Did I block it? It's my fault we lost it
And look at us now, us is holding us hostage.”
This idea of a photo series popped in my head and I knew the exact backdrop I wanted. So I got to work and within half an hour I had the basic foundation of it. I hadn’t painted on such a massive surface for at least 3 years, so I was surprised at how easy it was for me to achieve it. This is acrylic paint on a 54x36 canvas.
My vision finally came to life with the huge help and talent from Marcos and Jeanette. I would not have been able to pull off the hair and makeup the way Jeanette did. I love the fact that she’s always up for the challenge whenever I come to her with my crazy ideas. And I love, even more, the fact that I get to call her my friend. Marcos was able to capture exactly what I had in mind, with the lighting, angles and editing. It still blows my mind how we’re able to work together so effortlessly as if we’ve known each other for a lifetime. We always have so much fun working together, he’s a natural.

Homecoming, a painting from a few years ago... inspired by a courageous young woman with poetry in her soul, the seasons and the trees... *I'm a painter and for over 20 years I've explored themes of women, nature and healing. This will continue as a life-long passion I believe. More recently I'm into digital mediums and graphic design as well, and finding surprising creative moments there. Excited for all of it, and grateful to those who encouraged me along the way.* #muchlove#grateful#artist#painter#acryliconcanvas#womenandnature#healing#passion
Electric - acrylic and pastel on canvas. My goal for my next pieces is high energy, bold, and punchy. I'm not sure where this transition is coming from, but painting with these colors and movements feels right at the moment.
Just finished this commission for a friend. She asked if I could put some blue sky at the end of the wet road and stormy sky. A great imagine to share. May your future be bright.❤
