Grimm Fairytales

I created a Grimm theme drawing for the upcoming gallery group show at Blackbird Studios located in Las Vegas. “Fair Maiden, malignant is blooming”, “35 x “23, mixed media on paper


20121124-092632.jpg Using loose materials: graphite dust, sumi inks and dyes along with water colors I created an emotional effect to the piece. My goal was to show the innocence of the young maiden with the sin taste of the poison apple. Grimm group show will open on The First Friday of December 2012 For more information and artwork inquires please contact Gina at Blackbird Studios


Update: Live painting

Two weeks ago, I did my first Live Painting for Japan-aid at Blackbird Studios.  I loved the experience Live-Painting, definitely a different experience than painting in my studio.

Best part is that the proceeds when to help Japan!  Here’s some photos from the event. -Cristina

The piece was of mother nature and the galaxies, inspired by my favorite Carl Sagan quotes.

” We are made of star stuff.”

“You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.” – from  Contact
