2003 to 2019

I did stop painting back in 2003 due to personal reasons. At the time I thought it was going to be a short period of
time, I had painted without stop from 1997 and it was a big part of my life then. When I moved from the sunny Seville to Norrbottens Boden I had already hadnt painted for nine years, but I had married and had three children. Art had taken a back seat in my life, so to speak. I decided that I would paint again in Boden.

Coming to a small town in Norrbotten did not work so well for painting actually. I could not find the inspiration even though I tried to start again several times. I tried lots of sketching, following the same process that used to work for me back in Spain but nothing clicked.
Was it the motifs I used to paint? Was it the place? My art was always very related to cities, urban landscapes, city moods. In Boden all of that didnt exist. I couldnt just stand it longer, not being able to paint. I had to do something, so I changed completely the style and just thought, whatever it comes, let it go. just keep on painting.

Landscape painting wasnt something I liked before. I had tried it of course, but I never was able to extract the same kind of emotion I need in order to paint. My paintings were often strong colors images but with urban motifs from my city, Seville or from the time I lived in London. That mood was the mood I had then. Perhaps that was what was wrong. I wasnt that person anymore.

So I started painting again.

All paintings in this portfolio are oil on canvas, or stated otherwise.
