Flowers, Glasswork and Pottery
(These Paintings are up for sale)
Every spring I’ve been painting the wild flowers which are most of the flower paintings I’ve made but always with glass unless they’re growing somewhere. Spring is the best time for me when all the colors in Madrid burst out at once.
A resin-oil. my favorite technique. I love the candied look of resin-oil in glass jars and when they have just a bit of color; it’s amazing.
This small painting is a resin-oil of spring flowers in my neighborhood. There are so many different types and colors and that’s what I love about spring in Madrid.

Spanish Wild Flowers in Red Bottle 2012 – Egg Tempera on Canvas – 16 in x 13 in – 41 cm x 33 cm €170
This is a mixed technique of Wild flowers and Deep Red Poppies that start blooming in the Spring here around March. They are my favorites because they are so colorful and the shapes are great contrasting and complementing with this red bottle.
This is my favorite blue vase and I paint it often. One day there was a gigantic rose on my terrace so…
There was a funny plant growing on the terrace all winter long and something unexpected and unusual happen in June. Suddenly it got really cold and we had a hail storm. The next morning all these yellow flowers bloomed and it was really hot.
I remember this being a really hot day. I wanted to paint two paintings in different lights north and west.
This one was painted in the west light and I like the blue light on the leaves.
There is a white rose bush on the terrace. Sometimes I wait for them to bloom so I can paint them in one of my favorite glass vases.
I tried a new color to see how it would affect the look of the glass. The color and light effect is a bit different than usual.
The candelabra, the blue ewer vase and the Andalusian clay deep dish are my favorite objects. I like to adorn them with simple fruit.
The roses are from the terrace. When they start to bloom, I usually paint them. My grandmother left the vase in my care. It is an old Talvera vase.
