1. “Y por fin amanece” (Dawn at Last) 2016
Even though it was painted in 2016 it exemplifies the spirit of the people from Puerto Rico when facing adversity such as the aftermath of Hurricane “María”. It is inspired in the waking hour of the rural landscape. After a long night of worries and tribulations that appears endless. Gets darker by the minute, and then, just after the darkest hour…its Dawn at Last (“Por fin Amanece”).
2. “La Casita de la Villa del Parque” (The Parkville Home) 2016
Inspired by the story of beautiful home of Arq. Otto Reyes and wife Vionette Veray. Art lovers and collectors that have lived in the same house for over 50 years. Otto’s passion for art and design talent were all evident in their home renovation several years ago. A house that stands out in a very humble kind of way. Retaining the strong bones and respecting the look and feel neighborhood; this home blends a sutil plantation look along with trees, wood, stones, art. The artist depicts in this painting elements of the house, it’s owners, and the neighborhood into The Parkville Home (“La Casita de la Villa del Parque”)
3. “Faros de Esperanza” (Light Houses of Faith) 2017
Another work inspired by vision and Hope. Before modern navigation, sailors depended on reliable signs to recon their way to shore. Light houses were one of the first constructions erected by Spaniards in the coastlines throughout the Caribbean. Cross Atlantic navigation was risky and dangerous. At night they were guided by the stars and the moon often facing life threatening challenges such as thick cloudy skies, storms, coral reef areas.. With no GPS, they relied on the vigilant watching from the top of the mast. Hoping and Praying on hope was hearing the vigilant’s call: “TIERRA” (Land) when seeing for the first time the light coming out of the Light Houses of Faith (“La Casita de la Villa del Parque”).
4. “El Mangle Rojo” (The Red Mangrove) 2016
The Mangrove is one of the most important, if not the most important, of the elements of the ocean’s eco system. It is where live begins because is the safe haven for many spices to lay egg away from predators. Mangroves are rich, lively, varied and home for sea animals, micro organisms, birds and plants. It was also a safe haven for seamen. The Great-Grandfather of the artist was a schooner Captain that sailed cargo around the Caribbean. Sailing was his livelihood and whenever there was a big storm or a Hurricane coming and they needed to protect their ships, otherwise lose everything. He would mention often that the place that was the safest, wasn’t at se or even at the dock, the safest place was the Mangrove, The Red Mangrove (“El Mangle Rojo”).
5. “El Rafteo” (The Boat Rafting) 2017
Life at the beach is not only relaxing, but also fun. Among the many beautiful beaches of the Caribbean, many are located in small keys “islotes” along the coastlines. Marinas, sailboats, charters and pleasure boats are abundant. Boat owners are passionate, happy and friendly. They flock to nearby keys to anchor their boats together with the boats’ stern facing the beach. Often times they get together; friends and family move from one boat to the other, enjoy dancing, music while floating around in The Boat Rafting (“El Rafteo”).
