Sometimes when you have been dealing with negative things for a long time and suddenly, everything falls into place, and good things start happening, it's difficult to believe that something positive is actually occurring. It's a moment of disbelief and astonishment. Is this too good to be true? This is what this painting is about. Allowing yourself to receive the good in life.
This girl found a giant, fluffy, pink and white kitty in the darkness and is in disbelief. She is asking, "May I keep him?".

This painting has come from deep within my heart. It is the very first painting I have completed this year. It's a very personal piece. I hope you enjoy it!

It all started with a rough sketch.

There comes a time in a girl's life when she becomes a woman. She is strong and brave, ready to jump into life and take risks. She ventures away from the safety of her home and into the wild. When that occurs, women come across all kinds of beings throughout our journey. Sometimes we are lucky enough to come across some that accompany us and are willing to stand by us no matter what. This very special and personal piece is about that encounter, the adventure and magic that life is. Enjoy!

I'm learning the Tarot and decided to do a personal reading. There are many types of readings one can do. I decided on a simple past, present and future. I would do three paintings of this reading, not an exact copy of the card, but instead, an interpretation of the meaning. In another post I showed you the painting of the "Present" which was a wolf in sheep's clothing. I have now completed the "Past" piece. It is of a woman who cannot see because she is blindfolded and her body is a cage that holds her bleeding heart that has been punctured by sharp arrows. Take a look...
This is the final piece.

As an artist I am influenced by many incredible artists, I see them as teachers because the more I look at them, the more I learn from them.
There has been another type of artistic influence in my case, my family, we are a family of artists. My Dad, brother and my grandmother all had the artistic gene. I remember my Mom taught me how to draw a profile, I was about four and I still remember that moment. Here are a few images so that you can see what I'm talking about.
This is my Dad, Abel Reynoso in the 60's in Puebla Mexico when he was featured in Life Magazine
This is a mural my Dad painted for a church in Mexico
This was painted by my grandmother, Maria del Socorro Loya when she was a teenager.
This is the official 1984 Olympics poster painted by my brother, Abel Reynoso Jr.

I am learning how to do Tarot readings. The Tarot is a tool to receive otherworldly messages. I did a reading on myself and decided to interpret and paint the reading. It was a simple three card "past, present, future" reading and what was revealed was astonishing! On this post I will show you what my present revealed. "A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" is the message from the "present" card. It told me to beware and know that not all is what it seems!
Here I am blocking in colors for the underpainting.
