This was a surprisingly good outcome of an experiment. I’ve never made a painting without looking closely at each and every detail. I begun with a small seashell in my hand and then this happened. Sometimes we wear our emotions on canvas 😉

I built my first wood panel made of sturdiest birch. It’s so well put together that it can survive a drop, kick and whatever abuse you can do this painting.
This jelly fish painting is slightly different to my first one. It’s definitely larger in scale and the paint is an iridescent green. It glows no matter how the light hits it. Even in a dim room this piece glows. I’m amazed by the transparency and flexibility this paint allows. Pretty hooked on this iridescent green.
I’m pretty dangerous with a hand saw

I made this painting for my mom’s Birthday. It’s momma and baby jelly fish. There’s a little heart on the bottom left. Acrylic on canvas 14″x48″.

I absolutely love this Acrylic Conch Painting. We picked it up on a diving trip to Cat Cay Bahamas. I didn’t bleach the conch since I wanted to preserve it’s natural beauty. Honestly I’m not even sure why most people bleach sea shells. The bleach eats away the natural color of the shell and leaves it plain dull white.
This acrylic conch painting measures 30″ x 40″. The original sold already but prints of this painting are still available. Below are the pictures of progress and final piece.
I told myself I would never create prints from my artwork. Well I was so wrong because prints are an amazing solution for those artists that don’t have much time to paint. To be honest parting with my favorite paintings is an emotional ordeal for me. After spending a few months on each piece it’s tough to just put a price on it and sell it. So finally I gave into making prints. I’m beyond happy with the quality and results of the printer. Below are some of my prints already framed that I’m willing to sell 😉
What a tough time I’m having photographing this piece. Paint is taking long to dry and every stroke is glowing in the photograph. This piece is a gift to a very special person in our family. I can’t wait to drop it off when it dries fully.
I went from despising acrylics to absolutely falling in love with these fast drying bright colors. Here’s a 15″x15″ painting I made last month. I took the picture in Elbow Cay during a small swell.
Just sold the Jelly Fish. Acrylic on canvas 15″ x 15″.
The jelly fish have a glossy finish on each jelly making them appear wet and transparent in the water. The tentacles on the two big ones are intertwined forming a heart.
This is an idea a friend from Jacksonville gave me. I’m so glad that I was able to open up to new ideas and step away from my traditional painting techniques. I find this oyster so rich in color, so complete and vibrant. The middle section has a thick glossy finish that doesn’t show in pictures. Also rustic edges are popping out with a unique texture effect.
I’m always inspired each time I travel to a new place. One of those places is Bahamas. It’s this strangely familiar place I gravitate towards. Feels like my childhood all over again.
At the end of the island there is a spot called Tiloo Cut in Elbow Cay. When I first saw this I fell in love with the emerald colors of the ocean. In this painting you can clearly see why.
