Santuario Dom Bosco: Brasília, Brazil

I have had the most incredible summer of travel including a recent trip to Brazil. Although, I was only able to see a tiny portion of this country I found the people to be so hospitable and understanding to my poor attempt at Portugese. Although, there were some language barriers I found towards the end of the trip an ease in communicating that I didn’t have at the beginning. These images are of a the church Santuario Dom Bosco in Brasília, Brazil.

The colors were absolutely breadth taking and it inspired me to want to explore the color blue (tints, hues etc.) in my art work. I brought the work in progress”blissful” on my travels and noticed that while painting, the visit to this church influenced me enough subconsciously that I started adding more blue into the composition. I’ll post that image next week.

Well, I’ve been back in the Bay Area for about a week now and I’m ready to start focusing in the studio. Next week my intention is to continue working on the figurative works I started earlier in the summer.
