A few months ago I made a Changó who is living in Poughkeepsie. This one is still looking for home!
Acrylic, silver, gold and cooper leaf on canvas.
Here you have, the latest Ochun I've painted. This time she's carrying honey, her favorite sweet!
24x36" Acrylic and gold leaf.
Here they are, my last two paintings: Ogun and Ochosi. They always go together and live in the forest. I just couldn't make them separately!
Here it goes! Two more Orishas from the Santos Series. Hope you enjoy watching them as much as I enjoyed painting them!
Acrylic, gold leaf and silver leaf.
My last painting is Oyá, another Orisha from the Yoruba Religion. She loves purple, red and has the lightning and fire power like her first husband Changó. Gold hair, like fire, holding the keys of the dead people.
If you want an Orisha, I painte them only by commission. You can find me here firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll give you prizes!
Another paint in the Santos Series. This is Elegguá.
Acrylic painting 24x36"
Lately I've been painting in a larger format than usual. Maybe because I have a nice studio that make it easier.
I'm painting the Yoruba Santos from my own point of view. They all have different attributes and specific colors, amazing histories behind each of them.
Here yo have Changó, Ochun and Yemayá.
24x36" Acrylic on canvas, silver/gold leaf.
Commissioned paintings available upon request.
