Manzanillo Beach Art Print

Manzanillo is located on the southern tip of the Limón province on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, near Panama. In this painting, a palm tree is hanging out in the warm late-morning breeze, next to the Caribbean water gently rolling up to the shore. Red flowers are in bloom on a bush right below the palm tree.

This art print is of an oil painting of an evening beach sunset along the shores of Puerto Viejo! Puerto Viejo is just a little further north up the coast from Manzanillo.

These Costa Rica art prints are available as ultra premium prints, unframed or framed, in my Spanglish America Etsy shop. They make for excellent beach decor, especially for those that have vacationed or lived in Costa Rica (I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer there from 2006 to 2008 and came to know the country intimately).

Luscious Greens Landscape Painting

This oil painting is of a vivid and luminous green landscape in a mid-afternoon setting that is painted in an impressionism style!

This one makes me think of an abundance of leafy green vegetables in the summertime.

Progress on Portrait Painting

Here’s some recent progress on the portrait painting I’m currently working on:

Oil Portrait Progress

I just have to paint in the marina in the background, and her husband next to her! It’s still quite a bit of work left – each person takes around 20 hours to draw and paint. The background probably takes about 10 hours of work…and making the canvas is about 2 hours of work…for a rough estimate of about 52 hours of work! It should be a great gift and I’m looking forward to delivering the finished painting!

Painting Hair

Painting hair in a portrait painting can be rather tricky! If you’re like me and have very short hair, or even better yet (or worse?), if you’re bald, it’s rather easy. BUT, if you have a head full of curls, that is a whole ‘nother story!

I’m not sure how other Artists do it, but what I do is draw out all of the details of the hair, with proper proportional measurements, and start painting it all in with layer after layer, gradually blending it all together and getting the colors right. The lighting was low when I took this photo, so the colors are a little off, but here is a current shot of where I’m at with this portrait:

I need to soften up the lines a bit more on the blending of all of the strands of hair and continue adjusting the colors some, but I’m getting there, slowly but surely!

New Portrait Oil Painting

Surprise Gift of Custom Art

This new portrait painting is of a husband and wife on vacation with a scene of sailboats in the background! It will be a surprise gift for the Mrs.

The unique mission for this painting was change the headshot of the wife from this photo for one from another photo, but to do it seamlessly so that it appears natural! With a little bit of math, I was able to do this and now have it all drawn out, ready to paint. This one will be done with top-quality oil paints on this hand-constructed organic cotton canvas:

Getting close to finishing this painting! After the paint for the trees dries up (still need to finish the trees on the left-hand side), I’ll add in the foliage. This painting will be a part of the One Loudoun Spring Fine Art Exhibit on May 19th in Ashburn. Painted on Green Artist Canvas.

Kiwi Color Burst Oil Painting

Kiwi is so delicious. Every time I eat one, I wish they were 10x bigger, because I eat them in about 20 seconds and am always left wanting more!

For the past few weeks, we’ve been buying our groceries through the online grocery store Door to Door Organics, and part of the delivery is a box of fresh organic fruit. I highly recommend them for the convenience and quality of food. It’s been perfect every time! So much so, that the fruit has been inspiring my latest paintings, including this one. This is an oil painting on 9″ x 12″ linen paper. The original and prints are available for purchase here – https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Kiwi-Color-Burst/842088/3435915/view
