Dancing Hyacinths

Dancing Hyacinths 18" X 24" Oil on canvas 

Dancing Hyacinths is another piece in an ongoing series of collaborative works begun as a sketch by the late artist Brandon Crotty, and completed by me under the direction of Ricardo Chavez-Mendez.  Using techniques of Curvismo developed by Ricardo, for this piece I have also applied my own style, but maintained the integrity of the unfinished composition sketched by Brandon.  This collection is a tribute to his passion and talent for art.  A portion of the proceeds from purchases of these collaborative works will be donated to the New Mexico Philharmonic, formerly the New Mexico Symphony, as Brandon was a supporter of them and their music.  This was one of three originals accepted to be exhibited at the 2013 New Mexico State Fair - Fine Arts.

The original is available for purchase at CDA and 50% of proceeds will be donated to an ME/CFS charity.

20" X 24" Oil on canvas

"Support" is part of a collaborative series begun by the deceased Albuquerque artist Brandon Crotty, and they were completed by me under the tutelage of Ricardo Chavez-Mendez.  Although I remained true to Brandon's original compositions and basic colors, I applied Curvismo techniques and additional contrast in values, along with my own concepts.  A portion of the proceeds collected from the sales of this collaborative project will be donated to the Albuquerque Philharmonic, formerly the NM Symphony Orchestra, who Brandon supported. This project is a tribute to him.

This original piece is available for putchase on CDA and 50% of proceeds will go to an ME/CFS charity.
