Here's something uniquely cool, if you scan the QR Code (scrambled checkered box, that's what my papa calls them) with your smartphone's camera, you can see a video of my papa describing me in some detail, all on YouTube.
Metaphorically: 'Here I am, trying to see what's on the other side of that hill...' Physically: 'I am framed, with a basic black frame hand-made by my papa.'
Here I am, hanging around, as seen from this angle, with a couple of my larger siblings photo bombing my photo.
Here I am, from another angle, as you can tell, my siblings are always attempting to be seen too. And I don't mind, we all need to be seen more often anyway!
Yes! Another shot of me, since my siblings are always taking my spotlight. My papa's friend, Luis, is my new papa. Yet, my new papa said he's willing to give me a new home, if the numbers look right, whatever all that means. I'm just glad people love me so much, that they'd give me a nice home to shine in for years to come.

About The Artwork

I only have one memory, of when I was very young, and I was trying to go on an adventure. My mother always said that I was running away, but really all I wanted to do was to see what was around the corner. So, all my life I have been looking around the corner and trying to discover things, and I have succeeded. I call this ‘The Pioneer’, the little guy with his little toy, coming off the bricks into the wilderness. And it’s the wilderness that has been my passion for all these years.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
