Mixed Media on Canvas



Paris is a city that inspires adventure, romance, and fun. The most celebrated artists, thinkers, writers, and creatives around the world found inspiration in its beauty and truth. I was mesmerized by ‘she’. Wanting to commemorate the realization of a lifelong dream, Vacation Pictures in Paris is the result of photographs taken when vacationing in Paris last year.

Unplanned, these quick and casual, but beautiful shots gave birth to paintings similar in style to modern painters. Influenced by Van Gogh, Cezanne, and other impressionists, these works of art showcase quick brushstrokes, savage use of the paint, raw colors, and incorporate mixed media, including pens and highlighters. When in Paris you want a taste of everything and anything, irremediably anything goes in these works of art.

Other pieces are so pure. Results in honest communication between the media and the recipient. The author is just a brush in these works. A picture of the big bang. Whatever images may be on the canvas, habit in the spectator’s personal universe. The audience owns the story, travels to a personal yet common ground. 

Enjoy looking at vacation pictures; learn, process, and let go.

"COVID-19 tainted not only my present and my future,

but now I feel like also my memories are being affected..." 


Looking at vacation pictures is like traveling in a way. However,  who has time for vacations when COVID-19 is affecting the world.

There is little to nothing being made to stop the practices that lead to this pandemic.

How many lives more are needed to do something about illegal trade, unfair trade, unfair globalization, along unfair economics.  

We must do something so everybody wins, otherwise inevitably, sooner or later, everybody loses.
