Most times I honestly paint sitting/laying right on the ground like a three-year-old!
These two are in progress for my second solo of the year, this Nov at @wbfinearts and it will all be about ebbs and flows of the heartblood..

First holiday since sometime spring today!! Boating in a lake that is home to nearly thousand wild swans and countless other birds, as well as gazillion water lilies, and wild horses and some wild cattle in the meadows around it. So beautiful!!

Sunset in the wheat fields before we started to count the shooting stars. I did some notes on the future work and ideas in the fading light. Just a few weeks of summer left here, the days are so beautiful.

Here's a detail shot of the witch bride from the "Maiden and the Beast" painting I posted in full a couple days ago, for Modern Eden gallery's 'Flower Child' exhibition in San Francisco.
Especially to stay in one's own power in this crazy eclipse and shooting star season..

Little slow progress, painting an Eve..

"Maiden and the Beast" painting for Modern Eden gallery's 'Flower Child' exhibition that opens tomorrow in San Francisco.
Something through this painting tells my story of the deeper darker aspects of womanhood, of the witch-power, the beast within and the beauty of the full moon night's madness..

Detail of something in the works. I have been building up a few new sets of paintings, and the exhibitions are approaching fast, I'm in the final stages of so many new wonderful things!!
All my upcoming projects of this year are in my website's news section.

Detail of a new 6.5 ft oil painting when it was still in progress. It is titled "Traveler to the Outer Limits of the Inner Space", it is finished now and shipped to Manila for my next month's solo exhibition in Vinyl on Vinyl gallery. So excited for the opening on Sept 22!! Come see me there, or contact the gallery for online collector's preview and inquiries info(at)vinylonvinylgallery.com

The workplace of the day..

Work in progress..
These days have been insane, so many ideas and thoughts and things coming into being.

Here's a little cropped detail of my 'maiden and the beast' painting for 'Flower Child' exhibition next month in Modern Eden gallery in San Francisco. The exhibition is dedicated to the 50 year anniversary of San Francisco’s infamous Summer of Love. My latest and probably one of most favorite ever solo exhibition was a year ago in this gallery, and it will be so good to be back at least with one painting. {The model for this is my Shadow the Cat}
