1&1/4 Cup of Flower



1&1/4 Cup of Flower 13"x17"

I realized that being Mr. Mom for the past 7 years has crept into my art in such an unusual way. . . these last few paintings that I thought were my enjoying the Food Network Challenges are really about me painting my surroundings, making food that I hope the kids will eat, cleaning, laundry, taking care of to create a good environment that nurtures caring, loving, creative kids. I've learned so much about being a good parent especially when I thought I was doing it all wrong.

So, I look at these new paintings in a new light and have found that they really do reflect just another part of who I am. In addition to my culturally identifying images, it's just another facet of my evolving life. I hope you enjoy them as much as I've learned from them.

If you're interested in purchasing this one, feel free to contact me at:

You've found beauty in everyday items and captured it beautifully. Great painting. The shadow is really nice.

Hola Pablo, es todo un alarde de suaves texturas unido a una hermosa y original composición. Se puede palpar la sutileza de los pétalos, parecen de seda, así como el metal del cacharro y sus reflejos. ¡me encanta!

Beautiful painting - interesting musings. :)
When I was young, I thought that at a certain age everything would just fall into place. How thankful I am that we never stop growing and changing!
