Mural Painting for International School of Boston

I painted this mural as a gift to the children of the International School of Boston, where I serve as Extracurricular Activities Manager.

The idea came from the book: ” Life Story” from Virginia Lee Burton. It is a time line of animals starting with simple bacteria all the way to humans.

The mural is made of acrylic paint on plywood, it is made of three panels, and it measures in total: 21 feet long bt 4 feet tall.

It took me a year to complete and by the time I finished, the destination wall in the cafeteria of the school was removed for enlarging the space. Now the mural is in the school, but waiting to have a new assigned destination.  It was a great experience to work in that format over a long period of time. I had fun doing it, I challenged myself, and these things were worth my effort.

This is my new web site. Thanks to Philip, my husband, I have the opportunity to share my art with you,  through the  “window” of technology, at any time, from anywhere. I will also write regulary about what I am thinking, doing or wanting to do.  I will write in English, Spanish or French, depending on which language express better the particular ideas of the day. Making a website is also an emotional challenge because I had to dig old photos from pieces that I made longtime ago, and I still consider them important even if I feel far away from them. Seing art on a computer screen is a sort of “objective” experience, I can critizice my own pieces better than when I see them in my studio, full size. It’s like they get concentrated in some sort of “pure extract”. Some are too sweet, some are bitter or acidic or have little taste. I want to delete some of them and a minute later I want to embrace them all and learn from observing what worked better.
