Turkey & Sweet Potatoes

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Thanksgiving week has been a restful and peaceful one. I’m grateful for my life, my family and friends! I spent my days cooking, and eating (of course,) working on some drawings and going on long bike rides. I cooked a giant turkey and made a lemon pie. The next day I went on a 10 mile long ride. Today I’m making sweet potatoes soup …  and I’ll decorate the Christmas tree … J Frizza

Del Mar

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

The California shore line is magnificent. From North to South, the Pacific coast is diverse and stunning all the way through. It is, indeed, an ever plentiful source of inspiration. I’m posting today, a detail of an image inspired by the cliffs in Del Mar, CA. J Frizza

Color Scheme

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

When ever I’m working on my art pieces, I start with a drawing or a sketch on paper, and later I ad shapes, patterns and colors with the computer. The digital technology allows me to change at will the color scheme of my pieces. Normally, I end up with fifteen or more versions of one single image, yet they all have a very distinct mood depending on the colors. Here is another version of a picture from the series “California Landscapes” with orange hues, inspired by I hiking day up in Palomar Mountain. J Frizza

Shaping the Landscape II

Another landscape I constructed with drawings, shapes and patterns. The odd color scheme, pinks, purples and greens, and the rounded shapes, give this piece a dream like quality. J Frizza

Shaping the Landscape I

I have been using drawings, shapes, texture and patterns to create intricate landscapes. The result? A strange sighting, an almost abstract image, a suggested space, a nice feeling. J Frizza

More Eye Candy

The Halloween weekend was a non-stop candy eating marathon! I haven’t had that much sugar in a long time. Here is a pattern I created, inspired by candy … Sweet! J Frizza

Flow of Joy!

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

This picture is inspired by a hike trail I’ve done recently. The long trail descends into a giant canyon out in the Anza-Borrego desert, leading to a waterfall flowing down the valley. With massive walls surrounding on both sides, the water trail is stronger in the late winter. A splendid land, Southern California is a place out of a dream. J Frizza
