I came back from a baby shower party on a sunny Sunday and also today is Mother's Day here. It was kind of weird because usually only women are invited at baby showers but not here in Costa Rica. Men are also invited to join this celebration. We had a great time though and a lot of games and food. I thought of sharing this to you because I painted a red rose which I symbolized it as the newly born baby. There can not be a fruit without a flower. There can not be a baby without a mother. A flower represents our heart like an empty container that only with a childlike attitude can be filled with the true joy of heaven. This will be listed at my Ebay Store this week. The size of this is a huge original painting rendered on two stretched canvases which can be hung even without a frame. I invite you to visit my art in auction. Thank you for reading my blog.

It is always raining here in Costa Rica but it only rains in the afternoon and very sunny in the morning which I like though. One day I went to a nearby resort with swimming pools and beautiful trees surrounding them. The interesting thing here is that the water in the pool is a natural spring water coming from underground to the pools. I was walking in the field and saw some beautiful bamboo trees and behind them is the beautiful sunset almost resting to meet the night. I painted this scene and called it "Sunset Peace". This painting reminded me the thought that at this time of the day everything that is created are looking for a place to rest after a tiring day. Interior rest is the true rest where we have to silence our inner hearts from anything that disturbs our peace. This is true rest, "interior peace". This painting is currently in auction with huge size painted at two stretched canvases, ready to hang even with no frame. You may check it out to see how it looks. Thank you for reading my blog.

I just came from my painting trip! It was a very beautiful trip which keep my creative energy alive and active. I went to see the outer skirts of Costa Rica where I have more time to view the tropical beaches, mountains, exotic tropical flowers, waterfalls, and even the city of San Jose. With this experience aside from the flower subject matters that I rendered I was inspired to paint some landscapes. In my upcoming art auction you will expect to see landscapes especially the tropical sceneries. This painting above is an inspiration that I get. I titled this, Petals Of Joy, which is currently in auction with a very low starting price. Just click the title above to enter and view my paintings in auction. Thank you for reading my blog.
