Mini Portraits Series

I love making portraits, there is something fascinating about creating faces. Every now and then I crave doing figurative work, more likely after I have painted a lot of abstract art. This small studies are 5x7 on Yupo paper and they were a lot of fun to make.

I also painted 3 mini portraits on canvas with the same color scheme. They were a challenge, the main goal was to create different faces but similar…

After taking photos of the mini faces to document my work, I realized they look like people from all over the world. I didn’t do this on purpose, but now I’m glad they turned on like that, because I’m thinking of creating a mini book or a zine around people from around the world.

My art work is inspired by my life experiences, and traveling has been very important in my life. I got to meet so many people from different countries in my travels and each of them have made a mark in me.

Let’s see where this project takes me.

Vibrant colorful art

I have updated my shop with two new pieces.  One is a print of vibrant red lips, the other one an original colorful eye...maybe I'm missing the nose? I need to work on that...

I'm trying to paint whenever I can and getting my series full of new work.  I find myself having ideas while I paint, and I tend to forget, that it is while working and painting,  that we exercise our creativity to the fullest.

Thanks for stopping!!!!
