I had a lovely afternoon yesterday painting at Major’s Hill Park! The Art Flash Mob event was organized by Project Y and sponsored financially by Awesome Ottawa. There were two big card board signs that read, “Come Join Us!” next to the walkways inside of the park and lots of people who were strolling down after work did stop by to paint and be creative. The canvases were quickly brought to life by the vibrant colors and techniques. Most of us were amateur painters, but somehow the final art works ended up being quite interesting. I brought home the small canvas that I painted and the big one to which I contributed to with a bunch of purple swirls will be hung somewhere in the city. Fun, fun, fun!

I was born and raised in Monterrey on the majestic Sierra Madre mountain range in Mexico. Over 20 years ago my parents gave me my first camera as a birthday gift and ever since I got that simple point and shoot Kodak camera, I have enjoyed looking at the world from behind a lens. Technology has improved and I have upgraded cameras many times since then, but the need to capture a perfect moment remains the same. Photography provides me a way to communicate with others. Digital photography allows me to play with photographs and it enables me to sink deeper in the creative process. I studied photography for the first time in 1995 and continue to enjoy capturing special moments every chance I get. View more posts
