I will participate at the collective Art exhibition held by the Tucson Arts District on Saturday the 25th of October 2003 at the downtown area. My participation will include one entry only for October, as an introduction and will follow with more at the November exhibition. My entry consists of an original watercolor painting of a shack located at the San Xavier Mission area in Tucson. The name of my entry is the Shack of Silence. For who would like to see the original version please visit the Tucson Arts District exibition on the above mentioned date.
Enjoy and thanks,

My thirst for Art is a silent battle of survival which started as a childhood curiosity, and quickly grew into my passion. I am alway eager to find creative ways to express my emotions and I do so through design, watercolors and ornamental stained glass. Being and Architect allows me to be more versatile and permits me to focus on detail. There is more to being and artist than possessing a particular talent. Art is expressing your view using color, form, light, texture, knowledge, technique, and most of all the patience to complete the work.
Old people, still life, demolished houses in the countryside, are my subjects because they hold an unsolvable mistery for me.
My one and only beloved daughter Sara is my inspiration.
