Blue Angel


 

Watercolor / Gauche / Prisma Color

"The imagery in Blue Angel appeared to me in a vivid dream.  I could not get the image of a powerful and beautiful blue angel rising out of the SF Bay waters out of my mind.  The surreal imagery concerns Good transcending Evil forces.

"The painting was completed on thick watercolor paper.  I used bright and vivid blue, green and yellow watercolors.  After the water colors were dry I detailed some areas with bright Prisma colored pencils."

Somebody Up There Likes Me


 

Watercolor / Gauche / Prisma Color

6” x 10”

$1,200.00

"This watercolor was inspired by my “guardian angel”.  I believe that I do have a guardian angel that  hovers over me  during the day and night.   I have included images from the inner city of Oakland, CA in the background.

"Originally the watercolor areas were painted, later I detailed areas with Prisma colored pencils.  In parts of the painting I cut out  areas and collaged diverse textures.  This gives portions of the watercolor a 3-D effect."

DIego Marcial RIos Blue Terrie painting

Blue Terrie


 

Water Color / Guache / Prisma Color

2' x 3'

Price: $2800.00

"I was inspired to create this surreal vision two years  after the birth of my daughter.  I dreamed of  a multi-dimensional female (mother like) figure along side my floating  child.  The mother and child iconography is very traditional in Spanish art.  I was drawn to the color blue and green, colors often associated with creation and even transformation during the Renaissance and even early art from Europe.
 
"The female figure is very angelic and consists of plants, animals and even other angels.  There are hundreds of rendered details in within the figure."

"My rambunctious daughter named Ramona inspired this water color painting.  She was only 3 years old and less than 2.5 feet tall when I painting this surreal portrait of her.  The animal imagery and even the Fire Ball image are representative of her personality. 

"I used water color and gauche for the initial painting.   I added details in Prisma colored pencils and pen/ink."
