This spring I figured I'd get out of the studio and away from my hectic corporate life with two missions, get inspired by the magnificent playground God has created for us with an artist eye. Secondly, get my yearly itch for art workshops and artist networking scratched real good early in the year to give me juice for the rest of the year. Being away for what seemed like a month has been a great distraction from the mundane obligations of a very busy life. You might be inspired to hop on a ...

What was I hunting for in Costa Rica? A new life!  Many people don't know my story but I was born in Alajuela, Costa Rica to Cuban exiles fleeing the Castro regime. We came to america before I was 1 year old. Ever since my father, RIP, told me about the wonderful people of Costa Rica and the rich land topology. He strongly encouraged me to go back one day; 44 years later I did just that this last March. I learned a new phrase while there, PURA VIDA! My better half, Michelle,  and I headed ...

This last weekend was a special treat to be part of a Call to Artists by Barbara Tejeda of Grove House Artists in Miami Florida. The weather was brisk and the day fairly clear. This was a first time for me with this group and was missing my usual posse from Chiaroscuro Studio of Art. The Call to Artists was a Saturday and Sunday event but I was only able to make it on Sunday and it was a 3 hour window to finish. After arriving at this new location for me I was greeted by Barbara Tejeda ...

Always dreamed of painting the rocky sites of the Pacific coast, along the California state road 1 aka the Pacific Coast Highway. This month I got to travel to San Francisco for the first time for one week of business and one week of vacation. San Francisco, beautiful in it's own right just didn't wow me, being that I'm a city boy and all. It was a step up from Manhattan in some regards, mainly ...

 Earlier in the year I got a call that stopped me in my tracks as it was from  a young living master painter that I regard very highly for his draftsmanship and entrepreneurship. As I saw the caller ID I wondered what in the world could he be calling me for? Did I offend him on Social Media? Did he need my help for something? Was he inviting me to an exhibition? No, he was answering my prayers for an opportunity to learn from this young master. Let me tell you what an amazing experience and ...

Being a representational artist and having the pinnacle of mastery in figurative art in your backyard I literally broke the law by speeding to get to the Flagler Museum in West Palm Beach, FL. for the final hour of the exhibition. Yes, it's that important, it's like going to Paris and not visiting the Louvre if I would have missed it. Allow me to share my experience.When I first heard the exhibition was coming to town, I quickly jumped on Social Media sounded the alarm to all my local artist ...
