Paintings from Peru

I finished framing all 14 paintings which Ilona reduced and printed on fabric for me.

Before I start working  on the gallery box, wallpaper, floor, etc., here are some of the framed paintings.


This is a painting by Arturo Nieto from Quito, Ecuador. It is in wax pastels on paper.
Nieto paints people of Otavalo, Ecuador, in their beautiful traditional clothes. It was said that  when he was too drunk to notice, his wife sold many paintings behind his back, to feed the family.

As you can see, I still haven't had  the original  framed .

 

The rest of the paintings are all from Peru.


These four are all by Peruvian painter Camino Sanchez.





.

Here is how they hang on two opposite walls of our living room.  (Excuse the bad photos.)

Yesterday evening and today my reading list is unavailable.  I am really sorry for being unable to read your posts.

Blessings to all

  15. Exciting with your gallery. It's a fun idea that you make your own paintings in miniature. If you want to tell how to do, do you take a picture of the original or?

  17. You're living in a fantastic art galery - all of you're paintings have that special something to fascinate. And this cooperation of Ilona minimizing your paintings and you framing them produced stunning results.

    Greetings
