Finished Commission!!

Having collectors enjoy my work so much that they buy it for their homes is rewarding. Having collectors commission works is equally as rewarding if not more so…why…because the collector trusts in my talent, ability and creativity to create a work specifically for them! It is a challenge but so rewarding that I love doing it!

Here is a recently finished commission for a customer who purchased a work and then contacted me for a commission to mark a specific event in his life.

SOLD – Make Believe (with Pink Glasses)

I want to share this painting as it is part of a large commission for a collector in India that I am currently working on…a massive project of 13 works! This is a challenge and will take a lot of mental energy but being a seasoned professional I am certainly up to the task and will be updating my blog with additional work from this project from time to time as I am going to concentrate on it now that the busy holiday season is gone and we are into a new year! Thank you – Nestor Toro L.A. 2018

Did You Know – “Pure Abstractions”

I am a painter and my work is pure abstraction. Some might think they are easy to do and that anyone could do them. These people are of course wrong!

Wassily Kandinsky said, “Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw, have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors and that you are a true poet. This last is essential.

As you can see the ability to start with a blank canvas and apply color in a harmonious and visually balanced is necessary. Abstract painting is much more than simply throwing or appling random colors in a random manner. Nestor Toro – Painter
