Paint The West Group 07 May 2010

From The Native American Series.I don’t do very much sculpture work anymore since my accident in early 2006. I can’t seem to swing the mallet with passion and desire, like before, cause I have to be very careful do to a weaken right arm, that will cause me great pain if I’m not careful.

As a self-taught working artist, I have always believed that we are all blessed with gifts. It’s up to us to recognize and develop them; to what extent we will use those gifts to benefit others that cross our path.

    Wonderful sculpture Reynaldo, it almost looks like it’s carved out of ivory, English Walnut must be a very light coloured timber. Sorry to hear about your accident, hope you arm doesn’t still cause you much pain. xox

  • Jenny you’re a sweetheart, thank you for your concern. I’m pretty good most of the time just have to be careful. I can’t make real fast moves with my right arm, so I have trained myself to paint and use my left hand more.

    Excellent work and feel of the great man. It is a shame that an accident has made the world be neglected of your sculpturing. Be very careful with your arm we do not want you in any pain. Great work and a great artist!

  • Thank you so much Michael for your visit and concern, went to doctor yerterday and he gave me a shot in my right shoulder feel great, since. Today I got back to work on an angel (bas-relielf) wood carving I had not worked on for 9 months, thank you for comments, kind Sir!

    I love the way how you show respect to great people in the past, to tragic historical happenings, how you keep in in memory of people – what artist are made for too.

  • Thank you Bernard for the kind words, My Grandmama was part Chiricahua Apache. And the Chiricahuas were special among the Apaches. cheers Rey

    Geronimo, one of my favorite figures and heroes. I love the beautiful bear claw necklace you carved around his neck. His features have fine planes that indicate his ethnicity; and his hair, so detailed, is beautiful. Reynaldo, your finish on this wood looks exceptional. I’m in awe! Just noticed this submitted to the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts Movement gallery; and had to come say “hello”.
