Moving Painting Reveal: The Accordion PlayerMusic dances through and around my paintings. I created this abstract oil painting from a picture of an accordion player my fiancé saw in Old San Juan. Here you see the transition from my painting to the original photo. The song is an accordion tango clip, common to the area. 
Moving Painting Reveal: Blue HousesMy hope with this series is to increase awareness of Puerto Rico, showcasing its natural beauty, history, and heart. In this video you see my painting transition to the original photo it was inspired from. I wanted to capture the beautiful Caribbean colors of Old San Juan in large geometric shapes to emphasize light and dark registrations of the scene. My process involves digitally distorting the original image so that I can extract out color, light, and dark geometric shapes. The idea here is to capture the vibrancy of emotions and movement of Puerto Rico in its most simplest form. The chirping you hear are Coqui frogs, indigenous to Puerto Rico.
Moving Painting Reveal: Street of Old San JuanThis painting is inspired by a picture I took of a long narrow street in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico which led all the way to the sea if you stand to look from the top. This picture has high light and dark contrasts, which is depicted through geometric shapes to show how vibrant this area is. Carlos Hernandez, a local street musician in Puerto Rico sings "Guantanamera" in the background.
Moving Painting Reveal: GradientsI was walking through Old San Juan and noticed this blue building being shown in yellow from the street lights. It was a beautiful gradient transitioning from yellow to green to blue. My interpretation in this painting is through a Spanish mosaic tiled lens, which you see everywhere in Puerto Rico. I captured the yellow light from the streets, while the black windows look as if they are dancing figures. In this video you see the transition from my painting to the original photo. The song, "Ya Estoy en Humacao," was composed and performed by Pijuan, a famous musician in Puerto Rico who has given us the rights to use his music.
