Hey everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend wherever you are. Changes in the season are cause for celebration as leaves and flowers bloom everywhere. It’s a gorgeously warm day here in the New York City area and that alone is enough to test my patience. The reason is an urgent need to work on projects, while thinking about going outdoors. I think a little walk away from the usual is in order! I find it’s a great idea to step away from whatever we do at home, even if for a little while. Later on, I won’t regret that I missed out on much-needed sunshine. Where I’m situated, it’s a must with all the lengthy cold and gloomy days we otherwise experience.

My recent exhibition in “Sound and Vision” at ConArtist Collective Gallery was a whole lot of fun. I’m onto the next one in: “But Is It Art,” which opens this Wednesday, May 6th, 2015. 

I’ve added the piece I showed at Sound and Vision “Speak and Spell Re-envisioned” to my Gallery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved creating it.

Until next time, be well and enjoy some of this glorious season!

Images Added: Updates on the #BassBoomProject

Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

As promised, I carved out a little time to add the images here as part of the  #BassBoomProject.

These are the completed images of how the entire piece looks. Since it is a three dimensional, box shaped piece, I include several images for better viewing. After the finishes were applied, its smooth black background turned out flawless! I used Matte Mod Podge for the final steps. Although it’s a favorite of mine, I do offer it for sale. If you are interested in this or any other piece, please contact me directly via email.

Please enjoy and take a look back at the story behind this very loved project. Without further ado, here is the entire #BassBoomProject:

Please feel free to return and follow me for future updates.

With Love and Peace Always,

The #BassBoomProject

Uncategorized

In June 2014 over Father’s Day weekend I participated along other Artist Members of ConArtist Collective in the Paterson Art Walk.

All of us were given choice in the selection of pieces to show. Since the Paterson Art Factory is made up of many buildings and is an old mill converted into art studios, the square footage is huge…I mean, the dreamy kind of large any artist could wish for! If ever you have the opportunity, visiting the Art Factory will prove an adventure in itself.
The one piece I really wanted to stand out is a Subwoofer I’d painted on all four sides and the top. It’s been in the family for quite awhile and is still kicking out a mean bass! That little sound box was originally part of a gaming system my nephews and niece first owned and shared with my children whenever they got down to battle in digital mode.  The title and theme I used for promotional aspects is: “The #BassBoom Project.” I use the hashtag here as it can be found across many web platforms within social media.

My response to The Daily Post: "To Sleep, Perchance To Dream."

Prominent Dreams: The Ones We Remember Can Be the Best

Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

Throughout most of my life, I have enjoyed creating art which stems from such things as: dreams, emotions and the dailies of life.

Dreams may not be the only subject in all my artwork. They are a common denominator, if you will-as written in my Artist’s Statement.   They just happen to be the most I’ve created into visual form. Documenting it here online as I have on paper or other surfaces is the main reason I started this blog and website. It’s meant to be a place where I share the process and finished products of my art and how I arrived at them becoming tactile forms. Spontaneous inspiration, life’s daily moments and the emotions which stem from them are among the subjects in the rest of my artistic accomplishments. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey as much as I have and join me here as these stories unfold from imagination to surface.

Today I will share how a momentary waking vision turns into visual art by memory. I learned a very long time ago, that if you jot down your dreams as soon as you wake, it helps to sort out what may be bringing us moments of joy, delight, anger, sadness, worries and so on. It’s also a truly wonderful way of creating one’s own journal of sorts, helping to resolve anything.

In the interest of sharing knowledge, I answer what has helped me gain what I needed to understand dreams or waking visions. How do we jot down dreams when many of the details dissipate before rising out of bed?  The easiest way I’ve learned is by keeping a notebook and writing instrument handy at bedside. As soon as you’re awoken, remind yourself there is something nearby onto which you can write it on. No need to get out of bed! The repetition of this self reminder becomes more than handy, as you realize your dreams become memorable, clearer visions. Not only that…it helps to gain control over what you can dream of; recall things you may have forgotten ; healing moments of distress and result in a better overall quality of life.

As the title here implies: Prominent Dreams: The Ones We Remember Can Be the Best!

Among some of my own favorites in art I’ve completed, are the ones where I’ve captured someone else’s idea, vision for a piece or even their dreams.  Those commissions are excellent reminders of how I test my strengths in realizing a visual which didn’t sprout from my own imagination. 

If ever you’d like to have a visual reminder of something wonderful you dream up, Art is an excellent way to achieve it. Feel free to contact me directly with any inquiries to this regard or any other.

Until next time….dream pleasantly and Thank You all for visiting!

Hey there art lovers, family, friends and all of the above!

Now that I’ve updated information on my paintings, I invite you to have a look at the collection I will keep here, titled:

“Artworks Added to My Gallery of Paintings.”

It is with great love and passion, in which I make my artworks a real, tangible item to behold with just as much feeling as one can put into them.

Here you’ll find the most recent and earlier works, as well as, any I add as I create. Underneath each one you’ll see Title, Medium, Size, and Price. Further information on the description of each piece can be found on my website for Prints.

Please feel free to inquire about my Originals, Commissions and Special Orders. I am also available to answer any inquiries regarding Limited Editions.

I may be reached directly via email replying within a reasonable time of 48 hours or business phone number during hours listed.

Another alternative to starting your art collection or adding to an existing one, other than with Originals – is by learning of the great many affordable options I offer in Fine Art Prints, which may be purchased at: http://adrianajgarces.artistwebsites.com  Each can be ordered by various size, paper or canvas types, framed, unframed and in Greeting Cards. The images included in this post link directly to its corresponding Reprints Sale Page. Please remember to contact me directly for Originals and Limited Edition runs.

I hope you enjoy viewing some of the work I feel impassioned about creating and that you may return for updates. As an original piece of artwork may be fully appreciated up close, consider attending the exhibitions I participate in. Part of the excitement for me in exhibiting is the opportunity to meet art lovers from all walks of life and sharing how I arrived at creating any particular piece or project I have worked on. Feel free to say hello, enjoy the show and disconnect for a while!

Until next time…
