Las dos Hermanas ( Two sisters)

watercolor gesso and charcoal on Kraft paper
I just adore this piece. Ever since I let myself loose yesterday I feel I've turned the page to a new chapter in my life. I feel a sense of freedom. I no longer feel a tightness in my figure tips, not afraid to go buck wild with color. I just let my imagination and hand guide loosely. It's great and yet beautiful to paint the imperfections.

Sargasso cover on Language and gender

watercolor and pen and ink
Sargasso book of Porto Rico talks about topics of the Caribbean culture - for one, on Language and gender, art, music, poetry and history. A book cover in color about language and gender in the Caribbean islands. A friend of mine suggested that I'd do the cover for this coming issue. I was honored to do the piece. It turned out beautiful!
