New Work

New Work

Hilario loves to paint! His passion for creating his art keeps him in the studio 5 to 6 days a week. This means there is always something new to look at. What you see here is Hilario’s most recently completed work.

Besides creating the work itself, what does it take for Hilario to add a new piece of work to his website?

A new work starts, of course, with Hilario’s inspiration and vision.  A fleeting emotion, a flash of insight, memories, even a dream has inspired Hilario. Most often the vision includes a story and title for the new work.  Then a color palette and composition begins to take shape…is the new piece small? large? is it a single piece or a multiple piece?  is it banded or blended? What colors best express the vision?

When Hilario feels his vision is ready, he builds a form. He uses wood and hardboard with canvas stretched over it because the piece and his easel are one and the same. Then he preps the canvas, mixes his paint (always acrylic!) and gets to work putting the vision in his head onto the canvas.

When he feels that he has captured his vision, he is done painting but not done with the painting. He removes any prep material, wires the form as a frame for hanging then creates a digital image of the new work. Lastly, he titles and signs the work.

Now, it is a new work ready to be viewed and experienced.
