Inspiration For Resin Collection
Posted on May 28 2018
The colors and theme for these pieces are inspired by my trip to Mexico this past February.Our first stop was the city of Guanajuato in the state of Guanajuato.
My husband, who visited for the first time, was in complete awe at the beautiful old brightly colored buildings and the large amount of diversity within the city.
According to my cousin, who acted as our guide during our trip, these historic buildings are protected by the city and homeowners are not allowed to change their outside appearance. Ensuring that the Guanajuato keeps its charm that is known for.
At the center of the town is where all of life happens. People from all over the world walking every which way. To buy some tacos made with fresh handmade tortillas (yum!), shop at the stores of local artists, taking a leisurely stroll through the tree-lined plaza, or are en-route to work.
There are also tourists snapping away pictures of the monuments, lush gardens, and centuries-old churches.
The energy that radiates from the city is electrifying.
I want my paintings in this collection to capture all of that.
Just like the city of Guanajuato these paintings are filled with so much movement, life, and positive energy.
I seriously can’t help but smile every time I take a peek at them.
Though the new collection is taking a little longer to come together than I had planned.
The resin process is intense. It takes about 3 days to fully cure, which means that I can only work on one piece at a time.
I only have so much space in my studio!
