In this painting you can see the insides of the man... that's how I like to paint the human body, from inside-out. It is a very linear painting, drawn with paint.
Fluorescent yellow Group of 2 paintings.
October 09. Acrylics on Canvas. 4 x 10 inches
October 09. Acrylics on Canvas. 4 x 5 1/2 inches
This is a quite small and cute group of paintings. I specially like the one of the upper right. I have used fluorescent orange, copper, gold, and iridiscent colors to create this little paintings that are going to work great as a little installation.
I painted this after a hiking weekend trip to Bear Mountain during the month of November. In this painting I reflect the memory of multi-colored wet leaves on the ground while walking in the forest. The best way to look at this painting is from above, while the painting is on the floor.

During the Summer I took a landscape painting course with Melissa Brown. Since then my paintings have become more spacial and less controlled than they were before. This painting is abstract but still informed by landscape, in this case there seems to be a blue mountain, in front of it there are tree branches and clouds, in the bottom there is a blue stain surrounded by a dripping grid. This is mostly a stain-painting in which passage of time is part of the process. There are many layers of water and paint within the painting that create a sense of depth within the space as well as a sense of story telling. The painting has also been inspired by Chinese landscape painting.

Acrylics on Canvas 24 x 18 inches
This is the first painting that I created during the Fall 09 semester. It is one of my favorite paintings because I used my bedroom as a frame of reference to create this artwork. The textures and the contrast between bright and dark color is what I think that makes the painting interesting. I think that this painting eludes a sense of warmth created by warm colors and blended fibers texture.
