Title: Missing Link.

Sometimes we find pieces of ourselves in other people...That's the main idea behind this painting.

Also, I'm excited about the lime hue in this piece :)

This series of paintings is coming out straight from a deep inner place. Nothing is more rewarding than creating from the heart. It makes you feel connected with yourself and with the universe.

Have you noticed how the most meaningful things  are usually said without words? This painting is about that, about connecting with yourself in the quiet language of the soul.

Here is my latest painting. The idea behind it comes from some sort of poem that has been in my mind lately. This painting is a visual representation of it. 

I don't know how to write a poem properly, so here is my attempt to describe it with words.

A minuscule woman swims in water. Water in the shape of a drop. This water that contains itself and the woman is so small that nobody notices. The woman starts drowning, not in the water, but in her own fear to become invisible. As a blue bird approaches, the woman starts singing a good bye song, a song that sounds like the wind. The bird sees the drop of water and drinks it quickly. The woman wakes up to realize that it was only a dream.

Something tells me that this has to do with my friend Debra's departure. Even though she's not physically alive anymore, her spirit is vibrantly present in my heart.

A Hand that Wants to be a Wing.

Here is a new piece that I wanted to share with you. It could be for the show in Miami, Florida or for another show that I have in Panama this year. I love this painting in person so much. The text inside the hand is in Spanish and it says:

"A la mano que se mantiene abierta por un largo periodo de tiempo empiezan a salirle plumas y luego se convierte en ala."

Here is an attempt to translate this idea into English:

"A hand that is held open for a long period of time begins to sprout feathers and then it turns into a wing."

I'm working on 10 new necklaces that I'm absolutely loving. There is a little piece of my heart in each one of them. I wanted them to be little artworks filled with tiny details and lots magic. I can't even tell you how much I enjoy this kind of work. It's very therapeutic. 

I can't wait to show you all of them in detail! Stay tuned!

A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
Tony Robbins

Action is important. We can't do the things that we want to do by just thinking. Action is a magic thing. As soon as we move into action we feel a sense of purpose that keeps us going. One little action at a time is all it takes to change the world (our world). 

Happy Birthday to my Husband!


Cold Mountain Movie PremiereDecember 7, 2003 - Westwood, CA. With our daughter Natalie.

I want to dedicate this post to my wonderful husband. He's turning 53 today. We met when he was 41. Metting Bill in my small apartment in Havana 12 years ago was the beginning of the most important adventure of my life. It is amazing how much a single person can teach/change you. Bill is my daily inspiration. He's my teacher and my friend and the love of my life. Sometimes I wake up in the morning and I can't believe how lucky I am to be married to this wonderful man. 

Thank you Billy for everything that you do for me and for our family. Thank you for being so patiente and loving and understanding and smart. Thank you for working so hard in order to support us and thank you for always letting us know, without words, but with actions, that we're the most important thing for you.

I love you so much.

Happy Birthday!!!

Elsi :)
