old baby pictures and encaustic!

My parents are having their 50th wedding anniversary on Sunday and I wanted to create something special to give them on that day. So I went on digging through some old pictures I have in a box. As it turned out, I not only found what I needed to create something for them but other pictures as well. This pictures I used to create 4 more artworks. But today I'm going to show you three of them... it's kind of a series. People can buy them by themselves or as a group. Here they are:

They are made using encaustic on 6" x 6" wood panels. I have transferred the images into the encaustic and then I fussed it to it with the heat gun. I then used the scribing technique to imprint lines through them. Enjoy!

If you're reading make a comment, I'd love to hear from you...


here's my latest!

I spent two nights in a row creating two books that I want to display as my portfolio during my upcoming Solo Exhibit in January. Two nights where I only slept 1 hour the first night and 3 hours on the second night, but the good thing is that I managed to make them both. The first one is a compilation of most of my sculptures arranged in two chapters (From the Animal World - From the World Around Us), plus a first chapter with information about the process involved when I create each one of my pieces. The second book is about my mixed media work, compiled as a catalog form.

I'm very excited that I just can't wait to see the printed version of them!!! I'll let you know as soon as I get them...

and... yesterday morning, after no much sleep, I was still in my creative mode so I couldn't stop my self not even to have breakfast. So I added a new mixed media work to my collection. Here it is:

Yes! Fading Memories like mine was yesterday if I didn't get some sleep!!!

Now that I'm rested I'm back to working. I have two canvases ready for to you later!


the third one is done!

After you saw the picture of me working on the third painting the other day, you won't believe how it ended up.

As it turned out, the paper I used for this piece is not really recommended... I couldn't even pull it without getting it ripped as I was gluing it down, it shrank, and it broke. When dried some pieces got unglued and the paper became hard as cardboard. So I had to tame it down with some water and more glue. But when it was all set and done, I didn't like the way it looked and to top it off I tried to transfer some words into the surface and as I was varnishing the piece, the ink spread...what a mess!

Now, imagine the work trying to rip the paper off after it had a coat of varnish on top... so I re wet it to loose it up and only a few pieces came off. So I kept on trying until I started liking what I was seeing. Then, I had the idea to paint with acrylics to make it look as something old, like copper would do. Some greens here and there and VOILA! The painting is done! Enjoy!

Now, if it only had a name... My friend suggested to name it DYSFUNCTIONAL, as a follow up from my Family Tree Series. What do you think? I'd like to hear from you....


2 new today and the begining of a third

This morning I started working on a 20' x 20' canvas. I wanted to make one more painting related to my Family Tree series but not part of the series. It's just that I loved working on that technique so much that I keep going back to it. But this is my last one in this style... at least for now.

I started as always, tracing, cutting and pasting...

me at work!

My studio is a mess! sorry about that, but my January solo is keeping me very busy... no time for cleaning up and organizing for now!!

In the afternoon, in between driving kids around and doing laundry at the local Laundromat, I managed to finish this two mixed media paintings with encaustic:

P.S.: I apologize for the quality of the pictures but I want to post them as I finish them, usually late at night, so I don't have great light for pictures... I"ll post better pictures on my web-gallery soon. Keep checking!
