THE TRAVELER acrylic on board 24×24 abstract expression

We all begin to travel from the day we are born to an undisclosed destination.   Many years ago I had a discussion with a dear and close friend of mine about the length of time our travel could take and I remember telling him no one knows.  There are some of us who will take that time and put it to good use by helping others and being generous and selfless, not only to one’s family but to those who need it.  I think my friend is  one of those people who did not waste his time, he put it to good use.  This painting reminds me of the day we had that discussion. Well done RK.

LA BOHEME 20×24 Acrylic on canvas abstract expression

A tribute to Charles Aznavour, the most influential composer, poet, singer in my life.  I was 17 years old when I first heard his SUR MA VIE and since then he has been in my life as well almost all of my friends’.  LA BOHEME  is one of my favorite songs  being an artist myself, I visualized Monmartre from his description  in an abstract expression. When you are young you see everything positive, colorful and lovely and as you get older things change a little.  Everyone  has a little bit of La Boheme in our lives.  I am happy to say that I still have some LA BOHEME in my life and I  hope you have some in yours too.

“Wild Orchids “of my mind.48″x48″ acrylic on canvas, abstract impression

Abstract expression is  the art of painting  a feeling instead of a picture,  like happiness,  sorrow, depression, music, love, hate.  An abstract expression is reaching inside of yourself to bring out  the feeling you have at that moment, unpremeditated, instant and spontaneous, put it on canvas and hope that whoever views  your painting can feel and maybe even  relate it to an experience they have had.  The beauty  is that everyone sees something different and it becomes personal to  the person, as if they  painted it themselves.  I love flowers and orchids, they have  a way  of getting  into my paintings subconsciously, after all the most beautiful things in life are  nature, flowers, music good food and wine.

“Blue Jays” 14″x14″ acrylic on canvas, abstract impression

I enjoy feeding  blue jays that come every morning to our backyard and scream for peanuts in a shell.   I decided to paint an abstract expression of the jays and found myself  hinting the jays in my painting.  I would call that an abstract impression because one can see the silhouettes of the birds.

“Bullfight” 30″x24″ acrylic on canvas, abstract impression

I have been to a few bullfights in my time, very exciting, the music , the warm colors,  you are happy that the toreador prevails but you feel a little sadness that the bull must die.  So it’s a mixed feeling, like the gladiators fighting for their lives knowing that you either live or die. There is a certain majestic powerful and arrogant  look that the bull displays, very intimidating.   The young toreador who looks so elegant but frail in his costume and cape.  A  David and Goliath story.

CORAL 24″x24″ acrylic on board, abstract expression

Snorkeling in St. Thomas is a great experience.  I spent a week there and I was in the water all day snorkeling.  I loved the colorful species of fish, but I was mesmerized by the underwater landscape and the  coral.   I have painted this painting remembering how beautiful  nature is.
