Caper gold reds oranges are one of the most reach color combination incorporated in the sophisticated stile of internationally collected Mexican painter Fernando Gonzalez.

New abstract paintings at Cristi Fer Art Gallery and Workshops March 2019

I enjoy a structured abstract that reflects and incorporated all elements of art. One favorite of mine is the negative space, relationship between shapes variety of lines and subdued contract of color.
The following are some paintings that derived from the same subject.
The titles are

New from the artist studio

I new them I am exploring, women on the beach. May be because it's soooo cold here and I need a visit to the Caribbean. I know many Canadians would take our freezing Winter of 44-60 C over their own!
