I find so interesting the variations in the sized of the doors, relationship to the windows, how the top of the doors rarely align. This painting is of a street off the side from Mercado Ramirez in San Miguel de Allende. This painting it's available at Cristi Fer Art Gallery, in San Miguel de Allende Hernandez Macias 34 A, just 3.5 blocks from the main plaza. If you are visiting San Miguel stop by the gallery! You'll find the most original San Miguel inspired art!

 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 week acrylic painting workshop at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende

Participant painting A recent review from July 2016 workshop participant. Thank you Jennifer!  "I took a week long painting class with my mother and sister at Cristi Fer studio. I had been to San Miguel in past but this class allowed me to appreciate San Miguel in a whole new way. With the guidance of 2 extremely talented artists/teachers, Cristi and Fernando, we were able to create paintings of typical San Miguel street scenes; in addition, to gaining a greater appreciation for and confidence in the artistic process. Some of the best souvenirs a person could ask for. I highly recommend taking advantage of what Cristi Fer studio has to offer for your next visit to San Miguel. It was a truly unique experience beyond the typical tourist activities. If you don't have time to take a painting class, you should consider stopping by the gallery and taking home one of their beautiful original artworks." Visited July 2016, USA

New paintings at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende Mexico

Every morning I walk my dogs, and as I do, I look around and take in my surroundings. Most of the time I discover new exciting subjects. Lately... in the last 10 years I have focused on the architecture of the town I lived in. At times introducing people in the market, mariachi, vendors.  But the morning walk takes my attention to the shadows. We stroll and I take my time.  I think it is essential for an artist of any genre to internalize the world. For me it is a detached enjoyment.  It is like floating in the ocean.  No effort, no directing, no  projecting. Just being with the shapes and shadows, with the light and color.

Latest review from painting workshop participant

Image
"We signed up for the five-day acrylic class, which run in the mornings M-F. Each day, Cristi had a different concept/technique to teach us. Starting from abstract warm ups and use of tools, then progressing to shading, perspective, and negative spaces. Both Cristi and Fernando are accomplished artists, each quite different in style, and it was a privilege to be guided through the creation of works by them. We created three final paintings, plus the warm ups. Classes are in studio, and they work with each individual in what one is interested in creating and one's ability. You work fast and furious, and in flash the week was gone. I'm thrilled with the result and have even more respect for artists and their knowledge. Never again will I say, "I can do that!" when I see an abstract, I can now really appreciate works not just for beauty, but the act of creation." July 2016, Melbourne, Australia

What makes a painting is the full experience of the moment

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!

"Abstract Moon" original mixed media  at Cristi Fer Art Studio August 2015  New additions in our Cristi Fer Art Galley. Painting for a life time has tough me to experiment. The best results are when we experiment without expectations. Try new things and approaches. Embrace the art materials in a new way, re discover them. Some people call them "weapons" I do not agree or relate. The art materials are precious, to be loved and appreciated. They are friends that don't let me down. This are small paintings 10" x 13" paper. "Abstract 1" mixed media at Cristi Fer original abstract at August 2015

Original painting of San Miguel street by Cristiana Marinescu  I just finished this painting last week and it represents the street of Recreo in San Miguel de Allende. Always busy this street leads to the main plaza. During holidays and events it is a pedestrian street only. What captured my eye was the tower against the blue sky and the yellow building in front. It is painted on heavy  pastel paper with acrylics. 19.5" x 27.5 "
