I just got notified that this painting which I entered in a juried on line show, was select for display at the North Western Pastel Society's 25th Annual Internationa Open Exhibit. I was very delighted, of course, as I don't often do work with pastels. The work is mixed media and is going to be shipped to Tacoma, Washington for exhibition there. The work is small 6x12. It is framed in black and in a shadow box, the bordeers are yellow.There are buttons and a string glued on.

I am working on a series reminiscing old times in my youth in Cuba. We wore lots of beautiful dresses made in materials such as organza, polish cotton, satin, etc which tend not to be in used much any more. We would go all dresses up to the park to hear a band that played in a gazebo at the park and where young people met. Such beautiful times long gone now.

This piece is a companion to the other Musical Moments. I will be framing them in black. Am going to paint a series of membrance as part of memories of the now distant yet close land I came from. There were many years of separation when it was not possible to travel between this country and Cuba and didn't see my folks for close to 20 years. I am going to do a series incorporating some of the letters that sustained us duiring those painful years. .
This small painting was inspired by my love for music. It is a small watercolors with bits of collage and its size is 5x9.inches.The painting is also done in my very favorite colors, blue and sienna. It is for sale at firstname.lastname@example.org
