Guatemalan Still Life Painting of Flowers in a Blue Vase, "Garden Flowers"
"I found my inspiration for this painting in the joy that comes with having flowers at home. I remember these blossoming in my parents' garden when I was a child, as well as that of my friends. These flowers left a mark in our childhood," says Juan Henry Mendez fondly. He paints this still life with oils and acrylics in a vivid and intense palette of colors.
Titled "Flores del jardin" in Spanish.
Nude Painting, "Two and One"$889.99
Looking to classical art for his inspiration, Emilio Medeiros creates a surreal composition. He depicts the Three Graces of Greek mythology, the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome. The trio moves amid three different visual planes in neutral colors, in such a way that one is an improper member of the relationship. "There are never three," the artist explains. "There are always two and one. When there are three, a couple cannot flourish. When there is a nearer proximity of two, the third is separate. Trio is a more complex concept, one that the human spirit resists." The painting arrives in a pinewood frame.
Titled "Dos y una" in Spanish.
