Every Wednesday my nephew gets me one way or another. He’s always sending me memes, gifs, and other fun social postings provide a quick chuckle or two to get me through the day.
These typically come on hump day, which couldn’t be a more perfect day to send them, lol.
Given that the work week is just about half over, I figured I’d release this week’s latest from the Miami Series.
I spent a significant amount of time just observing all the wise old Cuban men hanging around Little Havana. Given that I’m not a shy guy (I know what you’re thinking, shocker right) I like to mingle with the locals.
In doing so, I had some wonderful conversations with a couple of old men who came over from Cuba. They were hanging out at one of the cigar shops by the Cuban Art Museum and the Domino Park.
It was a great experience speaking with these men. If I learn something new from someone that’s older and wiser than myself, then I consider it a win.
This piece is titled, “Mr.Cuban Cigar” and it’s an 11″ x 14″ watercolor on 300lb high-quality paper.
The piece is for sale – click here to check it out.
Here’s a quick image of it…
Also, I’d like to share this recent plant piece that I had fun painting. It’s called “Mary Jane” and the leaves couldn’t have screamed “paint me” any louder.
It too is a 11×14 watercolor. Check that out here.
Lastly, I’ve started sharing my views on some artists. Those showcased, I respect the heck out of. Being a professional painting is a never-ending learning process. I’ve learned from a lot of artists. One I admire is right here – Van Gogh – read my blog post on him if interested. He was insane, no doubt about that!
Have a good hump day.
Back to the easel…
