Other Noteworthy commentary


This website is new!  

For those of you familiar with my old site and earlier work, yes this is the same artist!  As my life journey changes and takes unexpected paths, so does my art.  

My earlier representational work in watercolor has shifted to impressionist and abstract on canvas.  Much of my new work is richly textured with the use of impasto (thick) paint and palette knives.  No longer limited by paper size I am free to work large scale, nine feet is the largest so far... 

I have available in print many of the familiar watercolor tropical florals, Hawaiian land/seascapes, whimsical Spam cans and the colorful  drummers and dancers.  Please contact me for a free e-catalogue. 

Any comments and suggestions to edit, add or otherwise improve format and navigability will be carefully considered. 

Thanks for visiting my website, and do stop by again soon to see what's new.



Te Via Bien,

Elena Garcia
