New Painting!

Broken Wings, 2007, oil on canvas, 10 x 9 inches
Yes it has been a while since I've actually finished a painting. Was getting worried if I should still call myself an artist or not. I feel good today, not just because of the finished piece, but because this painting made me realize something. It made me realize that I am very happy to be an artist. Things in life will always change, events will arise that could shake the very ground one walks on, but the advantage as an artist is that no matter how much life may change art will always be there. The drive and the passion to create will never stop. Painting is getting me through some changes at this moment and it's such a good feeling to find myself helping me get through it all by painting some more.

It's beautiful, Luis. All of your work is. I agree that our creative lives are who we are. I had a weekend where I did 2 paintings and am not exactly thrilled with them, but have learned that means, good things will follow and soon. Keep your chin up. Love your work.

Best, Robert Hoover

Thanks Robert for your support. It's great to hear you've been working hard painting. Keep it up as well. Like the portraits you've been doing!

That's a solid piece, I'm impressed by how you portraied the thin onion skin and the thickness of the onion. It's a dynamic piece of still life painting.

Good job Artist!
