TRANSCENDENCE IN PROCESS…

OMG is it May already? I finally got some wood to paint on! I didn’t think it would be so tough to find art materials in my homeland. I’ve been on the hunt for canvas for weeks with no luck. Cardboard is not as easy to find on the corner streets, piled up daily to trash as it is in NY. People do not consume the┬áunnecessary┬áhere, and all that packaging is iliminated by using recycled bins to move product into stores, or when you shop you bring your canasta! I’ve had to come to terms that I will not get as lucky with carboard pieces, or canvas here to create my new works. There is NO art store like Blick or a Pearl Paint to get what I want. In retrospective, I don’t really need. Living in the states makes you so damn spoiled to have everything at your finger tips. Then I remember why the world is in such a mess. I hit up my cousins wood shop got a bunch of wood pieces he had laying around and called it a day. Whew! I can finally get started on my new works…

Almost there…

Our “maestro” aka family wood craftsman made a handmade wood frame for my piece today, I love it! So natural. I’m gonna frame all my pieces for this series this way…
