"I enjoyed doing Bosquecito so much that I decided to do a final acrylic flow work and then return to the bosquecito, more realistic style."

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.

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.

Hi. R.L. You would know if you had it I can assure you. I'm on oxygen 24/7 and get out of breath getting in and out of a chair. I'm 77 and I was diagnosed with it when I was about 63.There is no cure and I'm afraid it only gradually gets worse. Take care. H

Cheers R.L I don't do much these days as I have C.O.P.D and I get out of breath even using the key board but I put my old ones up now and again. Cheers. H

Thank you R.L. for your great comment on my art and thanks for telling how you pour yours. You need plenty of space to do that I should imagine. Cheers. H

Thank you RL! I do love drawing the cats and right now I'm actually doing a wildcat, a lion. I hope to have it finished soon. I appreciate your nice comments.
