I'm not a good painter. Actually I don't like acrylic painting so much, I do have a great admiration for those who do it, for artists that painting is their way to express themselves and art.
I'm not sure what it is, I think is my fear of not having control over the medium. With other mediums like watercolors and linoleum I feel very confident about the final results but not with acrylic paint. I'm sure is a matter of practice and that's why I decided to create some pieces with it.
So I will start with a little bit of story and how Henri Rousseau became my inspiration. All started the last month, when I didn't feel well. I was burned, depressed and very very frustrated with everything around me.
Then one of those days I started to remember a short travel to NYC that my partner and I have it. Those days where art days, a short trip only for museums. And one painting of Henri Rousseau came to my mind and soul.
I don't know, but I'm sure that I always have what I call "artists angels" because in some events of my life, when I feel miserable an artist and its art appear to "save me".
I'm sure it is my instincts, I don't know, something. After that I started reading about Rousseau's life and I started to look all his paintings. I've created a Pinterest board for inspiration and I started to take photos of nature, vibrants greens, leafs, textures, everything that reminds me connectedness and nature. Here's some pictures of what I described above.
Stay tuned for more information and progress on this art journey and how will evolve.
With gratitude and love,
