"Thank you Rita! and Pamela! and John!  The work evolved into what it is now. It started as a tribute to the Farallones!  It is a chain of mountains on the western cordillera of the Andes that has the Pico de Loro or Parrot´s Beak as…"

Doing it for love

Posted on December 20, 2017 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

When I started this latest immersion in drawing and painting, I was looking for my old self that enjoyed it deeply and at times could do it hour after hour.  I had lost that for too long, and was more than ready for the fond memories that came to mind in the early 2000s when I was into illustrating words and verses and not much into images in themselves.  So, I took a formal class or two in watercolor, something I had avoided as much as possible before, and discovered happily that I loved…

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.

Oh, I am so sorry, I meant my words as a compliment!  When a piece shouts at me visually, I am compelled to study it further and  find out why it was calling my name! I am VERY, VERY visual  and tactile learner so that combo is a real draw for me! jean

Hey RL

I think doing a series on trees sounds like a great idea....so many varieties out there is should be a fun project. Looking forward to seeing your results my friend.

Hey RL

Thanks again for the like on my painting of the pooch. Much appreciated my friend. Your gallery is rolling by here and it looks just great. Keep up the good work and I loved those recent trees you put up into the gallery. Top notch work.  John
