Maiden’s Voyage

Oil Painting Maiden’s Voyage sails proudly as the “artistic juices” flow! Mindful not to brag too much, I am enjoying this new surge of inspiration to finish this collection, “Sea Monsters.” I’m also looking for around 4 more paintings to round out this collection. Just a few notes on the subject of this painting. I’m…

See Serpent

Oil Painting “See Serpent” is a-long-awaited Whimsically Bizarre Surreal oil painting. Why “a-long-waited”, because it took me the better part of last year and this, in order to finish. My theory of Whimsically Bizarre Surrealism toke a awhile to develop and more so to do. (You can check my website: http://www.jacabostudio.com to read.) This painting…

Metamorphic Tears

Drawing / Sketch Metamorphic Tears was extremely difficult to draw for me. I was emotionally crashing at the time. The sharp, hard lines and power driven anguish unearthed a reptilian image of lost days from many, many years past. A shadow of perhaps what could have been? Or what tragically was discarded by youthful inexperience.…

Winter Cabin

Oil Painting Winter Cabin is a little painting that speaks well of the concept, “less is more.” It blew me away right from the start. I managed to do a decent job with the knife. Looks like I’m back in the swing things after a long “dry spell”. Sometimes I like doing a different style…

Vanity’s Veil

Oil Painting Painted for a very special person in my life, Vanity’s Veil reflects several different stages of this person. I threw everything I could remember about her, and her likes (and dislikes). I really had fun doing it. And cradled within this scene, is a very strange looking chair, I couldn’t symbolically leave a…

Hand Out

Drawing / Sketch Hand Out is a charcoal, pencil and conte drawing that I did several weeks ago only due to my guilt. That is, I pushed myself out of a slump that I was in. It shows how desperate I was! My subject was drowning and so was I metaforically speaking. One good thing…

Pink Splatter

Mixed Media Digital Art 18in. x 24 in. This a short break from my more serious work. I like the gradient feel of this piece, it reminds me of 1980s art. jacabo

False Face

Oil painting — False Face is a refreshing look at a new style of painting for me. In this series I wanted to capture the “old” along with the “surreal”. This 18 in. x 24 in. oil on canvas is one of my favorite paintings I did from “Your Pretty Face” collection. I think what…

Water Nymph

Oil Painting Water Nymph is only 20 in. X 16 in. oil on canvas painting. Here I continue my desire to experiment with my Whimsically Bizarre Surrealistic theory. The images are simply and I’ve pulled back on the heavy use of color in order to blend the hidden images better. One challenge here I must…

Watering Hole

Drawing / Sketch Well – what about Watering Hole? I like it (12 in. x 18 in., charcoal, pencil & conte on charcoal paper). Everyday brings new and unusual images to light. Enjoy it first for what it is, then look for what is hidden. Maybe you might “envision” something different then what I do?…

Prima Ballerina

Drawing / Sketch Prima Ballerina is one of my early surrealistic drawings. It’s 14 in. X 17 in. I used charcoal, pencil and conte on charcoal paper. I began to develop my theory of the Whimsically Bizarre; combining strange replacements for body parts but carefully creating an artistic feel rather than an illustrative one. jacabo…

Fish Fry

Drawing / Sketch 24 in. X 18 in. Charcoal, pencil, and conte. I want to point out the over fishing going on in many areas of the world! This surreal drawing draws on my concept of “Whimsically Bizarre” Surrealism. I try to bring together different objects in order to provoke confusing and awake the viewer’s…
