Garcia Mural Project

I've been given the opportunity to create a mural on a friends backyard wall. The Garcia Home in Long Beach, CA. This wall is 23 feet by 7 feet roughly. Started this project on saturday, May 17 2014. Prepped the wall with primer (2 coats), then put on first layer of paint. I used a dark purple color on the left side that blended in with a pinkish color in the middle, followed by a small area of sporadic spray paint (Liquitex Burnt Sienna color) then finally on the right side of wall, green.

2nd day of mural.

So for this 2nd day of painting I went in and outlined the basic sketch of what the contents of the mural will be. A sun with it's rays on the left with clouds on the bottom of it connecting to clouds under a huge lotus flower which will be the focal point of the mural. 

On the right of the lotus flower I'll be painting in tree branches with cherry blossoms and finally on the right the om symbol which translates to: 

Clouds surround the mural top and bottom and on the right side. These clouds will be different colors with an arrangement of color that blends from each side of the color spectrum. Underneath the sun there is a cloud connecting there and that will have colors related to the sun, browns, reds, oranges and yellows. The lotus flower will have army green leaves (just a few) then as you can see the tiles inside the pool have a certain blue/black mixture in each one of them that i've re-created with the shapes inside the clouds next to the sun and those will continue just on the top part of the clouds. I'm having an idea to do the same idea for the bottom set of clouds except use an array of browns for those shapes. This mural should come together pretty swell. Can't wait to post the finished product!

Here's a video on the 3rd day of creation.

Talking about my art.

So i've decided to break down and start talking about my work.
The Healer in Her
16x20 Acrylic on Canvas

This piece is special. It took me more than two weeks to fully complete it and my intention for this was to show a healing woman. A woman who heals. A healer. A gifted woman who possess' healing powers.

The Mermaid
24x36 Acrylic on Wood Panel (Framed)

The cool story behind this piece is that i got this frame from a friend of a friend, but the friend who named me The Mermaid was right there when i came up on this nice vintage frame, so i decided to use the mermaid painting for this frame. I was nicknamed The Mermaid roughly 10 years ago by a guy who sensed my mermaid qualities. Hence the handfish animal spirit in which i stay proud of to back this up.

Art and Astrology

Midheaven/Venus aspect addresses the quality of individual love - either falling in love or deepening an existing relationship. According to esoteric astrology, Venus relates to concrete knowledge. This combination emphasizes profound awareness that all concrete knowledge is rooted in the principle of love. Another expression of the Mid-heaven/Venus conjunction is emerging artistic expression, involving either the physical world or interpersonal and social relations. The conjunction focuses on the individual's emerging awareness of the capacity to love, attachment and/or falling in love. Career advancements through recognition of your expression or creativity.

This is such a trip. I mean i don't base my whole life on reading up on my astrology but i guess i feel compelled to blog about stuff like this when i read exactly what is actually happening in my life at this moment just by pulling up my current astro transits (midheaven conjunct venus) and see that precisely what i'm going through is what in my astrology. To me that's just freaky and if i didn't want to pay attention to it...well that just couldn't happen cuz you can see how right on this shit is.

Sometimes I roll thoughts around in my head. Like debating to myself whether or not to write about my art or let it speak for itself. I think when it comes down to it my art should more than likely speak for itself one day. It wouldnt hurt to write about how why and what it took me to come up with such things as my paintings are leaning toward the mysterious abstract style, I get this. I would like to offer  my readers, viewers, art collecters and hard core fan's of mine a little bit more than just a picture to look at. This is why I feel I should write about what I'm creating so that...

1. People get to know me, the artist and either connect my art with who I am as a person or separately as an artist.
2. People can have a better understanding of what im trying to portray through my art.
3. Its always cooler to read about anything these days as opposed to not.
4. Last but not least,  my art name in itself carries more mystery I think than all my paintings put together and elaborating upon that would be something I should do for my peoples.
