Ready to Hang

The reason I chose the title for this piece is because it's the first painting that I took a video of me doing it. I did a very shortcut in the video, something that took me hours looks less than 2 minutes. The part when I'm drawing the trees gave me the idea for the name.

I created this piece on june 2015. Experimenting what does my computer have (I have 3 years, I'm not a high tech person) and I found an app, so that's how I decided to try something different and make a video.

My inspiration in creating this piece was the feeling of doing something new. I was filming myself, and I got lost in the music and color palette that I selected.

The colors make me happy, and I hope you can also feel that way when you look at it :)

I'm a self-taught Mixed Media artist born in McAllen, Texas. I was raised in Diaz Ordaz (Tamaulipas, Mexico). At the age of 15 I moved to Monterrey (Mexico) to continue my education, where I finished high school and later obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. I began my professional career as an economist working in privately owned financial institutions where I dedicated 8 years of my life. In 2011, I returned to McAllen to start a new life with my family, and I spent several months job hunting until a proposal position at a financial institution was offered to me. However, this involved doing the same thing that I had already done for 8 years in Monterrey, so I decided not to accept it. Using my small inventory of acrylic paintings and forty dollars from remaining budget I began painting. Now I have my studio at the McAllen Creative Incubator. This is my dream job, I paint having fun and listen music.
