Work In Progress

I've been working on these little 4x5 paintings. I like working this small, it's fun and intense. I will be doing two more little ones after this. Just wanted to show you what I was up to. I told my sister, Adriana, that I was going to make some prints to sell and she said, "Prince?". That gave me an idea, maybe I will paint Prince, who knows, maybe I won't.

Ave Maria

My next little piece is in the works. Here is a sketch. Like the one before, it is of a woman with an animal fetus. We are all interlaced, animal, people, plants and earth. It also comes from me calling my boys "pollitos" or little chicks.

The End Of Me, The Beginning Of We

I'm pleased with how this turned out. I went back to my own memories of pregnancy and the moment when it hit me that from then on, it wasn't all about me anymore. After I had my first child, I stopped talking in singular and started referring to myself as "we". What a shock.

I'm Back

After a break from painting, I'm back with a load of new ideas. When I was a very small child I drew a lot of pregnant women who's bellies you could see through. You could see the baby. I must have been fascinated by my mom being pregnant that I drew this a lot. When I find the old drawings, I'll post them. This memory inspired me to start a new series of pregnant women paintings. They will be very small, like tiny baby paintings. The first piece will be called: "The End Of Me, The Beginning Of We". Here's a sketch, and, yes, that is a lamb fetus.
