Wonderful gallery! Love your "Rememberances of Taste" series, very nice style.


I love the strong images and colours of "Remberance of Taste", "Conversing with a Byzantine" has a wonderful Byzantium feel, and love your complete change of style with Stories of Water.

Hi Erica,thanks for your comments, I am glad that you like my Icons.I have learned technique during my art study as part of painterly techniques.Also, friend of mine , she is a nun, showed me a lot, especially the method they are practicing in her monastery.I fill there is lot more to learn,and practice itself is learning curve.I am planing to hopefully organize exhibition of Icons at one point, and I am planing to produce much larger serial.I feel that iconography is influencing my art work, and I like everything about it, from counter perspective, to light, , drawing, under paint layering to preying which I like the most.


Erica good morning!!!Are you on facebook???I was wondering if you were .I have a group there for artist to get to know each other and it is fun in case you want to join or see.Take care ,Nelly.


Hello Erica, Thank you for your comments (a lot to live up to!) Someday I will be masterful, I trust. I am busy now with a delicious Spring in my courtyard and will get back to the blank canvas twittering at me once the weather gets too damn hot. I had visits from mentors recently, who gave me honest and useful critiques. I look forward to how this information will manifest. I may start at the beginning again with a color wheel. I really like your work and learn much from it as well. You have a tremendous sense of perspective and your tablescapes are delightful! Plenty in the Lily family, garlic and onions! Beautiful.


hello!!!thanks for the comment .I like Paul gaughin and Monet,but the colors of Picasso abstract make me smile.I love primitive art. I get inspired by my culture too!!.As a puertorican artist I add to all my paintings a little bit of criolle style :)Music it is in my heart and soul.I got Taino blood .I love to paint women faces .To me painting a woman face it is the closes I can get to the inner beauty of the female.You are so beautiful!!!I see hapinness in your eyes.Eyes are the windows of your soul!!You art it is mafnifico!!!:) Have a great day Erica!!,Nelly.
