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.

  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.
