"The Renacer Collection"

on exhibit at the

Northport Public Library.



Every now and again, we get the great fortune as artists to get our own solo exhibit.  This is mine: "The Renacer Collection"

 

Many ask me why that particular title?  There is reason behind my madness, I say.  Renacer is from spanish, it's translation is: to be reborn, rebirth.  That is pretty much how I felt when I created this collection.  At this point in time, I am changing my life completely.  I have gone from a stable management job, to the life of an artist.  Good most of the time however, at times very financially rough but, I wouldn't have it any other way.  At fifty, I feel that I am finally coming into my own, a rebirth of sorts.

 

No one said life as an artist would ever be easy, but it sure is fullfiling. To create something out of a blank canvas and watching it slowly come to life is a feeling that only another artist would understand; it is almost magical. To see the works that I have stressed over to create and seeing them now hanging on the walls of clients and galleries; wow! I get butterflies when I realize and say to myself, those are mine and they like them.  They really like my art work; the short thin, quiet man from Colombia. I wish I could express what I feel when someone buys or shows interest in one of my paintings...
