I Shall eat that prickly pear, even though I *** myself

The name is a rough translation of "Me he de comer esa tuna aunque me espine la mano", from a folk mexican song.

I painted this a La Prima, I could not reisist the soft tones of this standing on a fruit bowl in my kitchen. There was light comming from neary every corner of the kitchen, so I took it as a challenge. For those who does´nt know a Prickly Pear is a fruit from a cactus, very sublte flavor. The rest of the painting are  small pink, potatos and a grapefruit

I AM A SELF TOUGHT ARTIST. I LOVED PAINTING SINCE I CAN REMEMBER IT´S BEEN ONLY 15 YEARS SINCE I DECIDED TO START  PAINTING WITHOUT ANY FORMAL EDUCATION  (MOSTLY   I´VE LEARNT A LOT THROUGH VIDEOS AND BOOKS) I´M STILL LEARNING BECAUSE THIS IS A NEVER ENDING PROCESS. "Painting takes me out of this drabness, and helps me appreciate beauty, colours, as well as soothes me, taking me to a different plane out of this sordid world. It is a different matter that I have not achieved the high standards of painting. But even my attempts make me realise that there is something else beyond this material world."
