Yay the New Year is here, finally 2011
We get to start over , new things , new ideas , and New Art signed with 2011.
This Year will be a learning Year for me , I want to get in to new things, Pick up Oil Painting as a full time and Start working on Realistic Portraits, My First painting will be of my Daughter, I need to organize myself some how and divide my time between Painting for my Store , Creating Art to practice and Take care of my almost 3 year old Girl.
Last Year " month ago" Lucy and I went to visit my Family in California and Tijuana Mexico, We spend 10 days having a great time, enjoying our Family like no other, and Lucy meeting her Family for the first Time, Playing with her cousins and meeting cool New Aunts and Uncles , the best part of all was Getting to Meet her Great Grandmother Luz /Nana Grande, having to see her Grandma Rosalinda for the second time 2.5 years later and talking to her like she knew her from forever, First thing out of her Mouth Was " Hi Nana" Bringing Tears to my Mom's Face. It was an amazing adventure traveling with a toddler on a plane for the first time. I would do it again and again. But there is no need to do that since next time we visit Familia Andrade in California will be all of us Together yay!!
I got to see few of my very close friends that are Family to me, and had not seen since i left Mexico, Seeing my friends all grown up " Some of them" :) with Children made me think wow Time Goes by way to fast and you don't really feel it till you see an old friend you haven't seen and it hits you! were did those 10 years go. I feel like i just got out of High School.
When i moved away the image of my family stayed in my head, the same way i left them , young, babies, single, time stood still to me, Everyone stayed the way i left them , I don't know why and i don't know how to explain it. Some of my cousins all grown up and dating going to College , I use to babysit them, It was weird seeing them all , getting to know them again , getting to know the young Adults not children , It was a lot of fun and i wish i had more time to be able to talk to each and one of them spend time with them but everything went so fast and in no time My mom and i Were crossing the border back to San Diego to Catch a plane the next day and head back to Ohio to my Love. Visiting California felt like a dream, went to fast, to many things in so little time.
Seeing my brothers was one of the best things ever ! I couldn't get enough of them , is incredible how much i miss them, Chatting during the day with them is nothing like being face to face , looking at their expressions and faces , laughing so hard that you have to run to the bathroom so you wont pee yourself, Memories i will forever cherish till i see them again very very soon! Visiting proved i can't stay away to long . Family is everything to me , Is what keeps life going , its who you are.
Being able to see my Mom , to hug her and kiss her and talk to for hours was truly a blessing, I am grateful to have her, and to call her my Best Friend because that is what she is. She is the reason i am The Person that i am Today.
I love you Mom
This trip was more then what i Expected it to be , but i missed my Husband more then i could of ever imagine and I am very happy to be home. This New Year will be full of goals and one of them is to Go back and visit Familia Andrade.
Date on picture is wrong :P
Born and raise in Tijuana Mexico.
My interest in the darker but innocent side of art began in the earliest stages of my teenage years.
Working with different artist and styles inspired me to create a fantasy of surreal creatures with enormous eyes.
I am a self-taught artist, Specialize in Big Eyed creatures with a Gothic touch.
I do little bit of sculpting, ornaments, and pu pots.
I am available for commissions on a limited basis. It depends on the project, the time frame, and the subject matter((Please get in touch with me for a possible commission)).
I create out of joy and this reflects in my work, a fantasy of creatures are born each time I pick up a brush and start painting, I give life to enormous eye characters.
