LIFE THAT WON’T STAY STILL acrylic on canvas 14×14 abstract expression

The title of this painting came from my client/friend D.C.  I agreed with him right away when he suggested it,  I had called it still life, this painting hangs on his wall in the  beautiful home that I helped design and build.

Being an interior designer I was always looking for a touch of color or interest on small uninteresting walls. I have painted a number of small  paintings 14×14 and 12×12 for that reason, not only for small areas but  one can bunch them together for a larger  wall.

Everyone needs a little color in their lives, life would be boring without it.

RAINFOREST acrylic on canvas 48×36 abstract expression

Tropical islands are my favorite  places to visit for a week of relaxation, I love swimming and snorkeling in the warm Caribbean waters,  the lush green vegetation and the exotic flowers.

Even though the islands have a lot of similarities, I have had a different experience in each one.  I was inspired by Bora Bora for this painting, I was at the Club Med spending a week with my wife,  we had a  small  bungalow raised above water, it was a beautiful setting.  The food, the fresh bread, the cheese and the wine were great and needless to say I was happy. Life was beautiful and I had a great time.

When I got back I could not wait to express the wonderful experience on canvas,  RAINFOREST was created, I have thought of other titles like Bird of Paradise and a few others but at the end Rainforest was my choice.

Isn’t nature beautiful, it’s  good to be alive.

SUMMERTIME acrylic on board 24×24 abstract expression

Summer is my favorite  season. Everything is easier in summer, no rain, no snow, vacation time, going to the beach, a little swimming, a little fishing, picnics.

I have lived in Toronto Canada, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, winters were hard on me, I used to dream of summer a lot.

When I moved to Southern California, I found the weather that went well with my personality, although you still have different seasons, they are much milder and easy to live with.

George Gershwin’s SUMMERTIME was at my side while painting this one, imagining  the easy living and the fish that were jumping.

Gershwin, what a genius, definitely one of my all time favorite composers.

TEMPEST 48×48 acrylic on canvas abstract expression

Stormy weather, violent weather, wind, rain, hail and snow. We get those every so often, although not always in the weather, sometimes in our lives, in our  health. I don’t enjoy it but I expect it.

Life would be boring if the sun shined all the time  and the weather was picture perfect.

Though it would be  rough  on  us  and  those close to us,  look at the silver lining, after a tempest comes a perfect day with sunshine, flowers, butterflies and  even a rainbow.

I guess what I am thinking here is that in our travel through  life we will all have one or more  tempests.  If you think of what follows a stormy weather you will be able to accept both the good and the bad, even if it means that we have arrived to  our  final destination.

It’s alright to be a little late arriving to this appointment, no one will get upset.
