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!

New oil and cold wax abstract paintings

Image
Oil and cold wax medium is my latest creative adventure. I invite visitors of San Miguel to drop by, and see them in person. Some are inspired by San Miguel some by other cities and places I lived in or visited. Some are more organic and resemble nature and may have the origin in the natural beauty of landscape. Here are some recently finished Cristi Introspection, by Cristi Fer  Oil and cold wax on panel

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.

One Painting in One Day painting started as demo

What makes a painting is the full experience of the moment

Image
Red door 2016 by Cristi Fer, acrylic on canvas board 11" x 14" The San Miguel bright light is always a point of inspiration for me. The full experience of San Miguel is not only visual but the sounds that accompany the visual perception: Right now I can here the birds in the tree across the street , traffic, a kaleidoscope of music from the passing cars, people talking, dogs barking and earlier the calls of roosters. All are part of the painting experience and the painting!
