Tropical Surrealism

Posted on July 23, 2015 at 12:38pm 0 Comments

Since Magical Realism is so big in Colombia, I have decided to do a series of abstracts entitled Tropical Surrealism.  See recent postings on the Blog Section of rloliverartist.com.

Abstractions?

Posted on May 4, 2015 at 8:00am 14 Comments

Abstractions are neither easily definable or easily accomplished.  I find that what I call an abstraction, meaning lifted out of the realm of the specific to the realm of the general, is not seen as such by others, instead, they are often called expressive works.  So, I have tried to…

Salsa and Syncopation

Posted on March 11, 2015 at 8:37am 0 Comments

My recent work has tried to express the syncopated rhythm of salsa music visually.  I have had mixed results that found expression in the work called Salsa Struggles.  I am not sure if I have posted it TAC or not, but know I have on fanartreview.com and believe I did so on my website rloliverartist.com.  Regardless, my follow the bouncing ball portrayal of eight beats to the measure music has not been fondly received... or so it seems.  Interested in hearing feedback about it.

Getting there is half the fun,R L. I was thinking the same thing about my abstracts compared to yours!  P.J.

Hi R.L, I buy the water soluble oil paints at an art store near my home. You can also get them online at www.dickblick.com

Thank you R.L. for your nice compliments on my art. Lately I've been doing mostly pastel. But I also love to do colored pencil, some graphite and some mixed media. I used to do water soluble oil paintings but not much anymore. I like that I can finish one a lot quicker when I'm doing pastels and they're just so much more fun for me. I just love using them.

Thank you R.L. for your kind comment on my lion pastel. I had a lot of fun drawing him. I enjoy the cats and will do more of them. I appreciate it.
