Cristi Fer Art Gallery new paintings August 2016

 Painting I just finished today, inspired by beautiful San Miguel de Allende and on my list to paint! At time I return several times to the same view every time I see it I notice something new or I want to emphasize something different, say the plants, or the building in the foreground, or the street out in the distance. But there are so many other new perspective that I want to explore, some more challenging then others. Some painters have a hard time deciding when to STOP. For me it is the opposite! As an expressionist painter I see the world in constant movement and changing in front of my eyes. As I am about half way into a painting I am already excited by the 3 to 5 other subjects percolating in the back of my mind. Capturing the ESSENCE of what I see and experience through my entire body represents expressing it with the LEAST amount of strokes.
