"Gentle Smiling Tree" (2023) is painting that holds a personal and heartfelt connection for me. Inspired by the sacred landscapes of Oaxaca, Mexico, this special piece serves as a reminder of the profound connection between us and nature, channeling a sense of peace, harmony and tranquility.


In this piece, a serene tree is my muse, the grooves on its trunk forming a gentle smile that exudes warmth and joy. Against a backdrop of a colorful sunset falling over Bahias de Huatulco, the painting comes alive, evoking a sense of serenity and soft movement through the tree's leaves that move gently in the breeze. This painting is made in my signature saturated and vibrant style, to capture nature's vibrant hues and pay homage to the richness of Mexican tradition.
