El Balero y El Trompo

I want to thank all of you for such kind words on my Los Baleros post. I think in that painting I poured my sadness into it and also the hope we all wish for; for ourselves and those we love. Our family is moving on and healing.

I have some exciting news about Los Baleros. A new art friend, Fernado at Sol Digital Studio in Ontario, Ca. has put up Los Baleros in his gallery for sale and/or giclée copies of the original. Everyday brings forth a new venture!

I bought some new Mexican toys during last week's trip into Los Angeles and Olvera Street. This pencil sketch is a preliminary study for hopefully another successful painting. My dusting and vacuuming will just have to wait!

    What a great preliminary sketch - can't wait to see the finished product and CONGRATULATIONS!!

  3. Deborah Says:

    Good for you, Marta. These are wonderful....can't wait to see more. I asked the dishes and they said they didn't mind sitting in the sink dirty so I'm sure the furniture and the carpets don't care either!

  4. Congratulations, Marta! This is a great beginning for another fine painting.

  5. Emma Pod Says:

    Nice sketch Marta! And congratulations on the success with your other painting. I hope you are doing better each day and healing inside.

    You have the right idea about housework - dusting and vacuuming will always be there, waiting to be done. Save them for a day when inspiration is waning and you need a menial, rhythmic task to get your brain going again. If you're lucky that day won't come for awhile!!

  6. Cool! :)

    Housework will always be there. That's the lesson I am learning. Your paintings are so beautiful and loose and your colors so vibrant (sometimes) and subtle (other times). But, they always look perfect. Outstanding work!
