Mariposa Original Oil Painting



Mother’s Day is May 10th! Here is this month's GIVEAWAY:



My mom was the first “artist” I ever met and the one that has left the most lasting impression. I learned so much from her but most important, how to love life, have fun and not to worry about being “perfect”. I learned a lot from her! She was my best friend and most influential teacher.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’d like to give away one of my paintings. “La Mariposa” Original Oil Painting by me. Read why this flower is called the “butterfly” here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22095932

As the proud owner of one of your paintings, I can say that all of your works are absolutely beautiful. What I love the most about them is the reflection of your heritage. Please keep up the good work and I am looking foward to more of your art.

HI MARI I THINK THIS PAINTING IS BEATIFUL AND ALSO THE FACT THAT IT HAS A MEANING TO IT MAKES IT MORE INTERESTING AND BEST OF ALL IT IS YOUR CREATION. IN ART WHEN YOU CREATE A PAINTING IT HAS MORE VALUE THAN WHEN YOU JUST COPY FROM ANOTHER PAINTING. YOU ARE GETTING BETTER EVERY TIME! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Hi Maria! Oh my, I love your paintings! Something about your flowers remind me of Georgia O'keefe's style. I love the Sunflowers (those being a favorite flower) but also the Red Hibiscus is quite pretty too.
Thanks for the chance to win!

I love the coconut and lime painting...hubby is also a Latino (Guatemalan) and coconuts and limes are always usually in the house :) La Mariposa is very pretty as well, it would look lovely in my bedroom!

Sunflowers are my favorite, so I definitely love the pictures of both the single and double paintings.
