Libertè. Liberty. Freedom. Lady Liberty.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries sheWith silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
(State of Liberty Poem - engraved on a bronze plaque and contained inside of the Statue of Liberty.)

This is my first self portrait. It was supposed to be darker, almost in a grey scale but somehow it ended up like this. Maybe I'm not that glommy after all. I tooke inspiration on Jenny Saville's huge paintings. If you don't know her you must check out her work. She is amazing.

My mother is naïf art lover. She asked me for a painting characterized by a childlike simplicity.

I was so happy with the progress of this painting till this vimpire woman shows up. I hate her. She is ugly, deformed, disproportionate... even stinks!
I first painted the background and it was ok, then I painted the blond guy and I felt like Michelangelo and then... I ruined the whole thing with her!
Compare with the first study. It was much better.
Now, I will put it aside and just later try to fix Mrs. Dracula up.
Kids, do not paint like that!

Well, I know you can not call it a "studio" but that's where I work.
I'm working in this painting now. I drew on cavas using charcoal and now I'm oxidating before I start with colors. I'm travelling next week, so it won't be finished so soon.

Abaixo um quadro que pintei praticando, inspirado por Stephen Magsig. Um pintor que vem há vinte anos retratando Detroit e a "pátina da vida " como ele costuma dizer. Vale a pena visitar seu blog: http://myartspage.blogspot.com/
Back from the beach to the easel!
Practicing I painted inspired by Stephen Magsig as you can see below. He has painted Detroit for more than 20 years and enjoy painting the "patina of life" as he use to say. Visit his blog at http://myartspage.blogspot.com/. It is worth it!
