Alkairos World Map

I finally finished my fantasy world map for planet Alkairos! I spent way too much time on this, but I don't regret it one bit.

Gateway to The Artmosphere

"Gateway To The Artmosphere"
Acrylic On Canvas, 16" x 20"

When we try to reach outside our familiar territory, it can feel like entering a gateway into the unknown. It is strange, bizarre, and sometimes, even scary. Scary because it is hard to jump in without knowing where you'll fall. Very few people are willing to dive into doorways like that, but only those who do can, move on to the greatest of places.

The fear of the unknown is famous for turning opportunities into terrible monsters. Once you reach out and enter through the portal, you might realize it's the place where you were always meant to be.

Dreams never happen inside your comfort zone. Next time you see the gateway to chance, will you be willing to walk in?

Just Hit Replay

If dreams were like flowers, we'd wait for every spring.
If dreams were like hours, we'd wind the clock and set the ring.

My First Art Show

I did it! I got into my first juried art show :) These are pictures of my paintings "Sea of Dreams" and "Pink Dreamcatcher" hanging at The Barefoot Spa in Orlando FL. And here's other pieces in the show:

Blue and Pink Dream-catchers

I made these two paintings to submit to my first art show, along with my painting "Sea of Dreams", and one of them was accepted! I really love dream-catchers, the shape, the pattern, the mythical meaning behind them, everything. I didn't have enough time to paint something very elaborate and still make it to the deadline, so this was my shot at getting more than one artwork into the show, and I'm very glad it was successful.

The Beholder

"The Beholder" mixed media on canvas
30" x 40" (76cm x 100cm)
"The Beholder" is a painting I made based on a daydream I had, about a man with mirrors for eyes, who was telling me that he was the seller of dreams. He had a halo with threads sewn in between, in the shape of a dream-catcher. Even though I didn't add it, he was also holding 3 balloons.

2013 Tangy & Spicy

It's been a while since I've written freestyle, especially in Spanish, but after browsing my old posts, I came across one that got me back into it. This is a rebuttal post in freestyle form, from a previous post in this blog, 2008 Sweet & Sour. It is a reply to how I saw things 5 years ago, and this is it.

Dos mil trece tangy and spicy.

Cinco años más tarde, me encuentro en otra ciudad a miles de millas, llena de luces tan vibrantes como la gente que camina entre ellas. Giré como trompo, perspectiva ciento ochenta, de esas que cambias hasta de como piensas. Porque no hay mejor manera de encontrarte a ti mismo, que estar en un lugar donde no conoces nada, y nada te conoce. Ahí te das cuenta de quien realmente eres, y jode cabrón, pero vale la pena.
