Coming from a poor upbringing in Uruguay, a small country in South America, I relate to poverty and hunger. I was homeless a couple of years ago and I understand the desperation of being a woman without a roof over your head. This is why I paint images of homeless women in an impressionist abstract manner. I call my process spontaneous realism. My work is about using simple texture, line, color, shape, space, and form to create emotions. These works are a reminder that in a country as large and the United States, many homeless women are treated like street furniture, ignored, and unnoticed.
Boat on a Dock is an impressionist landscape paintingusing the technique of pointillism. I used the dynamic phi rectangle armature for compositional design. Boat on a Dock follows the rule of movement with the water movement, creating the effect of implied motion. Boat on a Dock is part of my initial body of work, and it is for sale in support of the Feed Me Project, which raises funds for homeless women and homeless shelters.
