Formentera, Spain – Seascape Painting on Canvas

The inspiration for this seascape painting came from a beach on the Spanish island of Formentera, and the beautiful blue hues of the Mediterranean Sea!

The canvas is made of Texas-grown organic cotton and is hand-stretched and hand-primed. The wood stretcher bars are FSC-certified and the all-natural gesso primer is made of limestone power, French marble dust, water and a touch of honey.

The canvas measures 8″ in height and 20″ in length.

Costa Rica Art Prints

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.

Down Dog Yoga Portrait Painting

Work in Progress

It feels like it’s been a long while since I’ve written a post here! In the past couple of months, I’ve mostly taken a break from painting, as I’ve been focusing my artistic energy on building out a few of my Etsy shops (The Accounting Artist, Spanglish América and Kids Yoga Art).

However, luckily I have my wife to keep me on track for our personal paintings in our home! There is one that has been pending for some time, and now I’ve got a due date to get it done, which is helpful. It’s of our youngest son doing downward dog, which will match another one I did a couple years ago of our older son doing downward dog.

Here is a progress photo of the painting, which will be a combination of oil (for the portrait part) and acrylic (for the background).

World Map Watercolor Painting

Recently I’ve started a series of 25 world map watercolor paintings for a translation/interpretation company (UNO Translations) to give to their clients for the New Year. Each painting has a unique design – this one is full of roses!

Oil Portrait for the Holidays

This portrait painting is going to be given as a surprise gift for Christmas from the husband to the wife!

Finishing a portrait painting always feels like a grand accomplishment to me. A lot of work goes into these, from the initial construction of the canvas, to measuring proportions and sketching out the image, to painting all of the details, subtle tonal changes, and adding depth through thin layers of paint!
