Acrylic Conch Painting

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 ;)

Oyster Painting

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.

I got myself into painting my first mural in the office. We thought of breaking wall first and making it a window that will face another wall… but plans changed last minute  :)

Special thanks to Alexandra Molina for jumping in through the last phases of this piece and helping me finish it.

New Orleans Art

new_orleans_paintingHot, muggy, fun and spicy. This is a spot for romance, art, jazz, and Cajun everything! Each time I visit I can’t help but pig out. Good thing this is a town in which you can burn calories by getting to places on foot. The European influence is quiet heavy. All buildings are different and some have a unique story to tell. Eventually like every tourist I got sucked into checking a out a few eerie graveyards. I was surprised on how detailed the tombstones were. The above-ground cemeteries resemble a time in which New Orleans was under the Spanish rule. I must of overwhelmed my camera with pictures. The way the light was hitting the tombstones was magical. I decided to paint a few pieces to experiment with light and a new (to me that is) style. Below is the result…
