Hi, everybody. / I am here to take my pictures out for a walk. I hope you like them and we can share some artistic views.

Thanks dear buyer/s

Selling a postcard is a feat, let alone three!
Some people have been interested enough in my work as to buy some cards, my warmest affection I send to them! Art hasn’t been often good business (not for the artist in any case), but in today’s world, where just a brand name can rocket up prices of, let’s say, a pair of sunglasses, if your own name is not “branded” you better find yourself a convenient post as a supermarket cashier or whatever. On the other hand, “branding yourself” maybe is not so difficult, just not my cup of tea, so when I happen to be spontaneously chosen as an artist by someone , well, that makes my day!

Thanks, dear buyer!

I sold today a card of “Blooming Carnation”. That’s indeed an unusual event and a best way to end the year, so….thanks dear buyer you contributed to uplift my spirits!

In the spotlight

Today the group Altered Art- Collage and Assemblage, where I am a member, has been selected for the community Spotlight groups, which is awesome. What is just incredible is that one of my images there (“Queen and courtiers”) is among the few ones chosen as examples of excellence in that group. I cannot be more proud and thankful. Just wanted to share this and thank our host, Teresita Troya, for her great direction and effort. Congratulations everybody in the group!

Solo Exhibition

Wow, today a bright star has shone on me and I got twelve of my works shown at a time in this wonderful group, Solo Exhibition. Even if for a brief time, since the activity in that group is constant, those were shown in two complete rows and I felt really satisfied with it, so I want to thank Frannie from here for the wonderful gift she has given me!

I got a prize!

Even if I missed the ceremony :((( and it took me a puzzled walk around to figure out where it must have been held (I am not too computer wise) in the end I found that I had got an award, this:


Special Recognition Award
