For Love


I Love You Like Bella Loves Edward
7x7"
mixed media on wood block


I made this one for my husband.
He was getting kind of jealous
due to my insane crush on Edward Cullen,
so I did this to make it up to him.
He loved it !!!!!!!
...and made so much fun of his silly wife.

I created this one while obviously craving for something sweet. What can ever be more sweet that chocolate brown and bubble gum/cup cake pink? It's a spaceship landing on our planet, packed with treats for their new, terrestrial friends.

Heading East



Just because it's almost summer and I can't wait !!!

Solid and hollow shapes virtually defining my fish,

making you see some behind, some in front.

The Chocolate Castle and the Smiling Rock




I'm trying to diet and exercise, but the more exercise I do, the more hungry I get after I'm done. So what's the point here? To keep me inspired and paint over my candy and chocolate cravings? Oh my. I just feel I wanna eat this chocolate castle! The rock? It was just an excuse to add a smile. I HAD to add a smile to this so very cute pinkalicious piece.

Downtown Rush at Night




I came up with an accidental shape of a ring, the one at the right. I gave him a couple (pimp looking one with animal print and everything). I then wanted to create a night scene, to go with the romance of the two rings. Then a moon, celestial bodies. The idea of the buildings was just the result of playing around with some round-edge squares I had previously cut gor no reason, and the blond in the window is a leftover from cutting a funny shape out of a red piece of paper. How I wish this all made sense...hahaha

Spread


A rootless, floating, and spinning tree who was spontaneously born, and whose branches keep spreading to nest all sorts of living beings...birds, flowers, fruits, and little monsters.

Fertility

These two pieces were the result of processing some of the things around my life lately (as usual). My sister's pregnancy, James Bond (my son's latest obsession), Easter eggs, marbles, the current nice weather, and who knows what else is behind the curtains in my unconscious mind.

Funny process...it's like a food processor (another thing in my life) in which you add all these things, plus accidental or planned colour combinations, a little of trial and error, and my luggage (or lifetime experiences), and you never know what you'll get. Sometimes everything works around an idea though, but it's always a surprise anyways. At least for me. No wonder art can be so exciting; this creative act keeps everything going on ...and on...

Surprise Element

River

Underground Cities

These are my new ones. They have nothing in common as you can tell. My art has always been quite experimental; I guess that's why the results are usually different. As I take a route, I get distracted by another, and so and so. My paintings rarely end up being what I planned first. The surprise element is so important to me...sometimes I feel the piece "paints" itself, or that there's somebody else behind it. I can clearly see the influences of my daily experiences and the things I like in them, but the structure or "grammar" of my pieces comes to life the moment I create them. I guess that's why art is so important to me. I never know what I will get, and it helps me explore and reveal my unconscious mind.

My Adventures in Garage Sales


The top cushion is from Emma Lamb;
the bottom one sitting at a chair, I can't remember
but it's from a well-known design firm.

I got mines (below) at a garage sale for $2 each,
and thought I was the only happy owner of such.
The blogsphere has proven me wrong once again.

Update on my life
























I just noticed my last post was # 100 !!!

Time passes by so fast.

Yes, I've been away from the blogosphere for a while, so I'm just going to make a little update about my life lately.

So, we were back home (Colombia) for Christmas holidays and had the best time ever ! Family wedding, boat trips, lots of sun, pool, ocean, parties, even fishing. So, for my sister's wedding my mom made this beautiful, orange, origami lilies that I taught her how to do through Skype!!! Can you believe that ? That was hilarious. (Before you think that orange is weird for weddings: It was a VERY tropical wedding). A friend of us who is a landscape and floral designer did the rest. The long, linen shirt that the men are wearing is called "Guayabera". It's a very typical and traditional Caribbean outfit. The location was beautiful. They got married in Cartagena, a old, beautiful colonial city in the coast of Colombia. It took place at the Convention Center, more exactly the terrace from where you can see the ocean and the boats coming in and out. Sunset. It was amazing. The orchestra played Cuban music most of the time. Check out the pics.

For New Year's, we travelled to my husbands home town, Santa Marta, were my children had a blast. My husband and son love fishing, water skiing, everything related to water. We spent some awesome time with our families and friends. Check our landscape!!! Ocean and mountain together.

We came back to Canada the fourth of January, and a couple weeks later I had the exhibition shown on the post below. Right now, I'm taking an online Photoshop course. I want to explore with more photographic resources for my art and illustration, and in that way I can combine my art with these two frustrated passions.

Well, that's too much talking. I know, I'm just a BIG chatter.

See ya !!!!
