Hello my fellow art lovers, travelers and everyone who loves life and the art of life along with it. Today I bring you my new print “Santuario Revisited”, made from my original print in my gallery. The image is of a holy church in Chimayo, NM where people migrate from everywhere for its healing powers. I have made about 7 different prints and have sold a few at my art shows. It’s a great affordable option if you want to mat and frame yourself. I use a unique printing technique. I have printed this print on 80lb textured watercolor paper. The image appears to get interrupted by the texture, but it also adds a neat effect. Plus I signed it as well. The image is around 7×7 on a 8.5×11 paper. I’m selling copies for only $20. I’ll post more in the near future. You can easily purchase it via paypal below.
I completed this painting at the Easel Place in ABQ, NM right before Christmas and finally got around to taking a photo and posted for your enjoyment. My goal for this piece was to work from the previous Santuario painting (in my landscape gallery) and see what my perspective would be like in an acrylic painting. Turns out that it came out great, in my opinion. The colors are more vivid and clean, and the composition is unique. Instead of painting the towers a dark color, I lightened it up this time around and cast a simple blue sky. I wanted the foreground of flowers to show up a little more elaborate too. The more flowers, the better. I hope to make more church paintings in the near future. Whether it will be oil or acrylic, who knows, but I like how the colors pop here.
