After moving from LA to New Orleans took a while to get my creativity going again, just weired times... interesting how a move can be traumatic even being something you want for yourself... So several new projects are up, and these are some of the pieces I finished over the past year. The bartenders are the newest ones, Im trying to create a series of New Orleans bars and restaurants paintings. Also I have Dan Edmonson landscape and advanced still life workshop to do at home... Some friends are asking me some portraits comissions which are very challenging, because I havent had much experience doing those... More details on the paintings Im publishing today, soon.

Study


In these very last weeks of dental school, Im overcome in anxiety.  I have finished all my requirements but still dont know if Im graduating on time. 
      So I paint instead. This painting started with a drawing from a photo I took in Rome, years ago. Well, the inspiration wasn't there. I started painting the sky and it became full of big fluffy clouds, and as I painted it  down to the horizon, I ended up with a very expansive sky.
      I first thought to paint an ocean scene, then Thinking of a flat landscape  finally the canyon scene came to my mind. I search in the web to find images , and came up with this, "Grand Canyon " oil study 8x10. 
Probably and hopefully this is my last painting while in dental school.

And this is the latest painting, 8x10 "Lemon Tea". For the art show at Howard University, I'm entering 22 paintings which 2 of them already have been sold to a friend...

  Its Easter 2014... two years since my last post. Im about to finish my program at Howard University College of Dentistry and can't wait to be back to L.A.
In the last 2 years much I have done in art, a few paintings and drawings. One workshop with Fred Guess in  New Orleans, which open my pallete to be more colorful.
 I finished my 10th still life from Dan Edmondson's workshop, which Im posting as well. The most exciting, besides finishing up with dental school, I'm participating on a group art show at the art gallery of Howard University Blackburn Center. Most of still life paintings which I completed during Dan's workshop and other originals of mine.

This is my latest painting in oil...  Persimonn, acorn squash and  copper pitcher  20 x 12 canvas  - oil. This is my Still Life 39 of Dan Edmondson workshop.    This first quarter of 2012 has been very exciting and stressfull. I'm posting this entry from D.C. where I'm living for the next 2 years. I got accepted to Howard University College of Dentistry  International Dentist program , which will give me my 2nd DDS degree and open many more opportunities in the dental field.  I sold two paintings to my good friend Bill, and that was very neat - and I promptly decided to paint the next still life. I was to go forward to #10, but I went to my own composition instead.   It is one of my best so far, I;m so happy. Hopefully I will be able to paint more in the next 2 years.
