From Semi-Abstract To Extreme Abstract

I wanted to share here a few out of almost twenty designs that I’ve recently created.
Above series is called Home Sweet Home. The designs are somewhat semi-abstract. Viewers could recognize some familiar objects. For example, on the left one called “Welcoming One” there are shelves, a cappuccino cup and sunflowers in the vase. The one on the right “Welcoming Two” has Venetian Chair, two glasses, and antique curtains. 

The next trio is more abstract, yet it may remind the observer some landscape features: sunrise, mist, and maybe a few mountains in the background.
I called this series simply “Abstract Landscapes

And the last abstract series is quite extreme. It was an inspiration after I saw one original of a great artist Paul Jenkins. I came home that day and let my watercolors flow on  a paper. 
The paint created unique designs for me. I had no control of where it goes or how it settles; I was an observer there, watching that pure colors dance. 
I called this series a Pure Color Inspiration:

Muy Caliente! Pineapple Habanero – Jam Labels Project

My Jam Labels project is developing into very interesting and a creative venue. Not only my customer makes delicious sweet jams, she also mixes a sweet with a heat. And here is the great wild example, pineapple habanero. When I received her request to paint that spicy family my mind was wondering how to accomplish this unusual combination, how to place papers next to the pineapple in the way they compliment each other. 
I cut my pineapple and left its beautiful leaves for the contrast. The habanero peppers were placed on both sides to give a stability to the composition. Their tails are up in the air as if whole painting is smiling. I swear when I painted this piece my mouth was watering just from thinking of flavor, sweetness and richness of this combination.
 And the good part to work on such projects such Jam Labels is that my customer provided me with the sample. And oh yeah: It was delicious! 
Muy Caliente!!!
