New work for purchase titled "Raíces" (Roots)
Story: Though this piece was inspired by a combination of things that I love and feel very connected to (la isla, bomba, cultura, nature and history) as the painting progressed the inspiration and focus shifted onto the fauna, foliage and nature (especially when I returned from Puerto Rico).
For those who don't know me well -- or at all, I've always felt a very strong connection to the Earth, vegetation, the ocean and Sun. I believe it's why tranquility is so easily found for me in places like El Yunque, or high up in the hills in Caguas, or while in the ocean, the caves in Arecibo or in Bosque de Piñones (Piñones Mangrove Forest).
It's why I felt so blissful while hiking near Indian Wells in the California desert last year; oblivious to the 105 degree dry heat, because I was THAT consumed with joy. It's no coincidence that 71% of the Earth's surface is covered with water and the human body is 75% water. We ARE nature. There's absolutely no separation. We're just a fragment of a much larger consciousness at work. This piece seeks to celebrate nature, my beloved El Yunque and the beauty and vitality of God's tapestry.
