TRANQUERA was just juried into the April exhibition of the San Diego Watercolor Society.
Rïse Parberry was this month's juror. "Tranquera" is based on sketches I did on location, and pictures taken at my friend's Lalo and Estela's Estancia in Villa Catalina, Córdoba, Argentina.

Marbella is a beautiful and elegant town on the South of Spain, where Dali sculptures grace the downtown plaza leading from the gorgeous beach to the lovely Old Town shops, bars and restaurants area. This is a sketch of a quite villa of condominiums nearby.
To get to Marbella, you can fly into Malaga, and visit the several Picasso museums in Malaga, since he was born there. His native house in front of the plaza is one of the museums.

One of the several bridges that crosses the industrial and University city of Toulouse, and its main river: La Garone. Le Pont Neuf is particularly beautiful as the sun goes down. Older, traditional buildings in Toulouse have been built with bricks, giving the town a reddish color, thus called:" la ville rose". Tango Festival in the summer is fantastic, with people dancing tango everywhere!

We recently took a tour-cruise on the San Diego Harbor, and learned that "Harbor Island" didn't exist a hundred years ago. It was created with the accumulation of silt and rocks from the bottom of the bay, to deepen the San Diego Bay. Now there are some beautiful hotels, restaurants, parks, yatch club, it is a lovely ride with a gorgeous view of the San Diego skyline.

In painting as in life, it is not WHAT you do, or WHERE you do it, but HOW and WHY you do it. It's the motive, the goal, the company that counts.

"The Arts are man's protest to accepting the world at its face value. ...... Within each straight-away the road seems clear, but the memory of earlier directions warns that the view never can be the same for all people." Just like in life... I loved this book.

She works her magic in white ceramic, day and day out. She's a true artist, because as one of my professor's at the University of California once said: "If you work with your hands, you are a laborer, if you work with your hands and your brains, you are a professional, if you work with your hands, your brains, and your heart, you are an artist."

Having grown up in Mendoza, Argentina, near the Andes, from the age of two to twelve, the love of mountains has stayed with me. I love all mountains everywhere. There is a sense of infinite mystery, beauty, silence, and marvel. I particularly love the French mountains, the Pyrénées, and the Alpes.

This art piece is part of a collaborative exhibition by the artists at The Glashaus Studios and Gallery. We combined our artistic skills and crazy ideas, and came up with new work we had not even imagined before we started! We surprised each other and ourselves. The result was a fantastic collaboration of different media never attempted before. It was awesome! It is a beautiful show, only two more weeks.
