Art on Vinyl

I have been invited to participate, in a group Art Show “Discolandia” at Wonderland SF, next Saturday December 15. I just started working on my Vinyl. I got an old Christmas record for $2 in Goodwill-First, I Painted it with gesso and  drew some random geometric patterns, and colored them with acrylics. I’ve made a video of the process! Follow my creative journey... see the video and stay tuned for updates!

“Breaking through”

“Breaking Through”

24”x24” Acrylic on Recycled Canvas.

I found this discarded painting on the street yesterday, just around the corner from my apartment. Anytime I see a canvas being trashed, I rescued it, bring it home and do something new with it!  Usually I paint over it and cover the original image with paint, but I didn’t want to do it with this one. Because to me, this was not a bad painting, this was just an incomplete  painting. Which is different. So I thought it was my obligation, as an artist to resume the work, already started by another artist.  Here are the before and after pictures. If you have $100 to take this painting out of my hands! I would appreciate it! I am running out of room in my studio...

“Another Frida”

I was invited to participate in a “Frida Kahlo” art show “Many Personas of Frida” But I didn’t want to wear “Frida”, paint “Frida” Instead I wanted to be “Frida” the Artist! And the only way for me to accomplish this was by painting my own portrait in ‘Frida’ inspired manner. So I set up a mirror next to my easel, and painted my portrait.

And just as Frida, I wanted to capture the pain and beauty we both carry in our story.

“Another Frida” will be on display at The Laundry, part of a group show called

“Many Personas of Frida”
