This is my new painting collection of original portraits on plywood.
“We Were All to be Queens” is a poem by Gabriela Mistral, a Chilean poet. As I was painting this series of portraits of women deep in their thoughts, I remembered this beautiful short poem written in 1938 related to FEMININE decision making. Although the poem is rather sad, I love the idea that despite the difficult circumstances of life, we should always have DREAMS that make us react and achieve the impossible.
My collection of imaginary characters aims to honor the secrets and experiences that we treasure in our ancestral memory. I want to create a MAGICAL REALITY around our memories because I realize that we all have a spiritual story to tell.
I think these paintings would look perfect as a set. You could image and create a unique story by placing them together!
The paintings shown here are 21cm x 29cm (8′ x 11′) small original paintings on plywood. With a unique hand-made tray frame they stand out enormously on a plain wall.
