Talent and Excellence are achievable; we just must keep seeking them.
We as human beings are a myriad of beautiful and incredible things, we like to write, sing, express love and color.
Painting is a joy with many ups and downs, which requires to challenge our fears, constantly update our knowledge data, and never leave those brushes at rest, but above all, to be willing to go forward in spite of the five thousand paintings disasters that are awaiting us in the way.
Painting is experiencing the joy of being creative, even though our masterpiece could be improved.
Watercolor painting was my first love, later dabbled with acrylics, oil, mix media; each technique has its own particular charm.
My stile and themes continue to develop, and it got extended in different directions. I know I still have a great deal to learn, but today and just for today I am thrilled with level of progress I have achieved as an artist and teacher. Accept my invitation to DColorex, express yourself in color, challenge your fear and marvel yourself and the world with a masterpiece that is waiting to by created by you.
