This painting could save a child

Make a life easier for a child to breath. If you know of child that suffers from asthma, ask them a simple question; “What is it like to have asthma”? See and hear from their perspective how it feels not to breath.

That’s why “Tenderness”, the proceeds from the sale one of my original paintings for my upcoming exhibit “Gift of the Rose”, will be donated to the Golisano’s Children’s Hospital to further benefit the Pediatric Asthma Support. One of the best gifts you could give is helping save a child’s life!

tenderness of mother and child, yellow rose gift of the rose collection I’m inspired to paint flowers because I see the parallel lives between nature and human lives, perfect example is tenderness.  In “Tenderness” I feel the bond and tenderness between a parent and child, the maternal instinct to protect and nurture. This beautiful piece was in the May issue of American Art Collector and in the Xanadu’s Gallery Collectors Catalogue. It’s an 20×16″ oil panting on Ampersand Gessobord. Painting is $400, delivered or mailed after the exhibit.


At last, “Tenderness”, in American Art Collector!

At last the May issue of American Art Collector is out and “Tenderness” made a graceful debut under the Xanadu Gallery! Thank you Jason for such an amazing opportunity to be part of the studio group of artists. If you’re not familiar with American Art Collector, it’s the countries leading magazine for art collectors, art galleries and fine art artists. Most artists, like myself, aspire to be in such quality magazine even if it’s once in your lifetime. Made my day!

Yellow Rose of Texas

Here is an interesting story about the “Yellow Rose of Texas” and how this beauty made it’s travel from Manhattan to Texas, thank you for sharing!

“Tenderness” in American Art Collector

tenderness of mother and child, yellow rose gift of the rose collectionWhen I left my full time job in 2009 to pursue a career in art, one of my long-term goals was to be in a major art magazine such as American Art Collector perhaps in about 10 years or so. I’m extremely happy to announce “Tenderness” will be in American Art Collector! Perhaps the May issue, yet to be confirmed. This rose took me about a total of 3-4 days to paint, not bad for a newbie to oils. I’m learning so much and enjoying painting with oils, I’m stretching my skills and just warming up!

I relate flowers to human nature events and emotions. “Tenderness” is about the relationship between mother and child, the mother rose protecting a young one.  Having three daughters and a grandson, I feel very close to this piece, enjoy!

Yellow rose in progress

Here is a full view of a yellow orange flower, almost done. This is a yellow rose with hints of orange, I fell in love with the dark and light middle left area. I started this painting a with a light value underpainting with Burnt Sienna. It’s a little to orange-y, my next step with is to  add lighter values of a range of yellows and add a few more details to the leaves. I’m painting on a variety of Ampersand panels, this one is an 18×24″ Gessobord, so smooth and beautiful, it saves me a ton of time from  gessoing and sanding.

Love this piece, goes perfect in my Tuscany room! My Tuscany room was the family room, now it’s my studio ( well, one of the rooms). My dream is to paint in Tuscany one day, till I get there, I painted this room in warm orange yellow colors, draped with moss green curtains and I painted scenes of Tuscany on gold plates…a little Yanni music and I’m there!

Would love any feedback or suggestions from my artsy friends!
