Fruit ladybug 91


oil on canvas panel
10.2" x 7.2" (25.7 cm x 18.2 cm)

A ladybug checking its fruit or just standing on it to admire the view of the rest of its world.  It's a colorful painting that makes the eye happy.  The original is a lot better than the photo.

Inside 90


oil on canvas panel
6" x 6" (15 cm x 15 cm)

Microcosm inspires and thrills me.  In my imagination whole worlds inhabit inside the very small that deserves our attention and admiration.  I've painted a lot of flower close up paintings.  This one with the curling petal is one of my favorites.

Ladybug cocooning 89


oil on canvas panel
10.2" x 7.2" (25.7 cm x 18.2 cm)

As everybody knows about me, I love ladybugs.  This insect conquers many of my small paintings just because.  When I saw this photo, I just had to paint it.  I couldn't live without hugging in a painting this couple of ladybugs that cocoon in a dried leaf.

Pink in green 87


oil on canvas 
8" x 8" (20 cm x 20 cm)

I took the photo last summer from a tree just under my home.  I was walking by every day and the flowers were calling me.  When I did, I took a lot of photos - this is based on one of them.  I may paint more of them.

Cloud shadow 85


soft pastel on Fabriano 200g pastel paper
8.5" x 12" (21 cm x 29.7 cm)

It's the pastel study on a photo I took last summer.  There is much intense at the ground and even more at the sky where clouds seem interesting while they move leaving traveling shadows.

pink 83


10" x 7" (25.7 x 18.2 cm) - oil on canvas panel
It was one of the paintings that take a long time to finish.  Going back and forwards till the image itself decided it was ok to stop.  I am happy with the result though.
