This past year I made two short trips without José Antonio. The first was to New York and the second to Havana, Cuba. When I returned home he talked to me for hours about what I had done, had seen and how I felt about the trip. He then began painting the places I had been. This painting is from New York:
It is called East River Reflections, New York. It is a lovely smallish cityscape in an interesting format that would fit nicely over a chest of drawers, over a table or over a fireplace mantel. Its width is 36″ which is a standard width size for many pieces of furniture and the height is only 18″ making it fit into a space with limited vertical height. I point this out as clients often ask for a work in this format and José Antonio does not often produce them.
The second painting is of Cuba. He is still working on this one so you will have to wait for a bit before I put it on the website.
What fascinates me is the way José Antonio shares my travel adventures with me. After our talk about my travels he conjures up from his imagination his view of place and through his artwork he is there with me. This is so wonderful!
