Soñando Con Pomarrosas, my new Multimedia piece.

I battled with this piece for weeks, not knowing what the end result would be. At the end I destroyed it in pieces and reconstructed it again. It has a lot of meaning for me, one that I did not anticipated.

True acceptance of finding beauty in things as they are. Beauty is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete... Wabisabi way... 

Here is a video of the process, thanks for reading!!

Creating Art with texture

After creating artwork with figurative portraits, I’m back again at painting abstracts. This time playing with textures. I really liked doing this pieces, playing around with acrylic skins and textile.

After I finishes the first piece, I noticed it had the same color scheme as the previous portrait I did. My mind is a sponge for sure.

The second piece I did, I decided to add strips of fabric I had from another multimedia piece I will share with you soon. I have a time-lapse vide that I did so you can se my process. You can watch it below.

This last piece reminds me of Las Salinas in Cabo Rojo Puerto Rico, a salt flat that forms a pretty pink lake. Is a great visit if you are in the island.

Can’t wait to create a bigger body of work with skins!!
