Finished. This is another view of the George Washington Bridge and Fort Lee, NJ, on the same day as... shown in the last piece, ‘The Great Hope’. Continuing the limited palette scheme, I used mostly cool yellow and blue tones with a warmer red mixed in.

Finished. ‘The Great Hope’. I caught a great cloud formation behind the George Washington ...Bridge recently. I’ve been wanting to work more on clouds too so this was the perfect shot to do it. I used a limited pallet of 3 primary colors and some black. It’s incredible what you can convey with only a few colors.

Finished. I love this view of the New Jersey cliffs from #lindenterrace inside #forttryonpark. For ...this piece I was trying to capture the warmth of the lamp’s glow from just outside the frame, against the cooler and hazy atmosphere just beyond the wall. Go and enjoy this park jewel for yourself! 8x10”Watercolor schmincke_official #art #artistsoninstagram #sketch #watercolor #watercolour #aquarelle #painting #washingtonheights #nyc #nycart uptowncollectiv nomaanyc #hudsonriver #landscape #watercolorpainting #watercolourpainting #adrawingaday #artcollector #intheheightsartproject

Finished. This is the BP gas station at 186th and Broadway in #washingtonheights. I stopped in the ...middle of the street to take in the greenish glow during a recent storm. I didn’t get everything as exactly as I’d wanted to but overall I’m happy with the mood I captured.

Sold. I had the pleasure of selling this original painting to a lovely couple in the neighborhood. ...I painted this scene to capture that magical, late afternoon glow of our Hudson River sunsets. I’m so gratified and honored, knowing that this artwork now belongs to lifelong residents of #washingtonheights. Thank you for your support!

Finished. This is the long staircase at 187th Street connecting Overlook Terrace and Fort ...Washington Avenue. Between taking the 184th street subway elevator or these stairs, I often end up picking the stairs. On one particular day shown here, I caught the sun obscured by this wonderful cloud formation. But there is no holding back the sun’s glory and that’s what I was trying to capture here.

🎬 '𝐈𝐍 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐇𝐄𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐓𝐒' 🗽

"Paciencia y... fe"
Este musical es algo nuevo y fresco para el género. Lo vi sin expectativas y me sorprendí muchísimo. La trama te llega al alma si eres latino y te ha tocado irte de tu país para buscar mejores oportunidades. Desde el primer momento te atrapa por la manera en cómo cuentan la historia. Anthony es el protagonista, este interpreta a Usnavi, un chico de República Dominicana que vive en el barrio y maneja una tienda. Su actuación fue muy buena y sus partes de canto son muy alegres. También tenemos a Melissa interpretando a Vanesa, el interés romántico de Usnavi. Ella es una chica que quiere ser diseñadora y salir del barrio. Una muy buena actuación, debo decir que su color de voz fue mi favorito de la película. Alguien que se robó mi corazón fue el personaje de Claudia, una dulce señora que aunque no aparece mucho en pantalla, se roba cada momento que protagoniza. Por otro lado, la edición de la película es una de las mejores que he visto. Así mismo, las coreografías y banda sonora son espectaculares. Mis escenas favoritas son la de la piscina y el edificio👌imposible no querer bailar con esas canciones. La fotografía fue muy linda. Y esas vistas panorámicas desde arriba mostraban la coreografía completa. El guión es demasiado bueno, cada personaje tiene diálogos importantes y te encariñas con todos. A su vez, no le dan tantas vueltas al asunto y van al grano, por lo tanto, es un guión directo y consiso. Además, cada personaje tiene sus propios conflictos internos. El filme también cuenta con escenas conmovedoras o con las que cualquier latino se identificaría. 'In The Heights' es un regalo a esta bella comunidad latina que día a día lucha por lograr sus sueños, algunos deben partir de su país para lograrlo. Esta película es un regalo para los latinos que tenemos un "sueñito".

💬 ¿La vieron?👀🍿

View from my window. Just a video of my painting process. It took me about an hour to finish this ...😅. Let me know if you'd be interested in seeing me paint this in real time. Want to help me move out and achieve my dreams? I'll be making some prints available to purchase soon ;D
Rant:
So this is what I wake up to everyday... at least I get to see the sky... but boy does this depress me... I wish i could afford to move out on my own but I don't make enough money to afford staying here. The only reason I can even stay in NYC is because I was born here and I currently live with family. You know how much bullshit it is that people who make above minimum wage STILL can't fucking afford a 1 bedroom apartment in this city... it feels like I'm stuck in a trap where I can't leave but can't afford to move out of the city... i'm grateful to have a roof over my head... I just can't help but feel like a total disappointment because I still live with family... when I was younger I thought I would have my own place by now.. Sadly I don't make enough money with my current job... and my only choices seem to be getting a higher paying job but having to give up on my dream of being a full time artist... or I just have to suck it up and stay living with family so I can afford the luxury of painting (even though the act of living with people, family or roommates, gives me such negative and violent thoughts...) So... give up on my dream and be able to afford to live on my own or suck it up, keep living at home and face intrusive violent thoughts on a daily basis... it feels like there is no right answer... but yeah... it's hard to even feel like I can achieve my dream. let me know if you want to help live on my own 🥲

Holy line-work Batman! This one took forever, but I think it’s worth it ✨ Someday I will see the inside of this beautiful theater - from what I understand it is even more stunning and ornate than the outside! For now I enjoy La Plaza de Las Americas for the weekly music and gatherings there.

Done! The sight of a Mister Softee truck parked at Fort Tryon Park's Jacob K. Javits ...Playground hearkens back to pre-pandemic normalcy. I see this normal scene almost every day, but this one time I found the truck under a magically dim sky, with different light sources clashing in nearly imperceptible tones. One of the hardest parts for me was to decide on the colors (which I'll cover in another post one day). I'm happy with how it turned out and hope you enjoyed the clips along the way. Watercolor on 16"x20'' Arches cold press paper.

Another “the heights” landmark.
hispanic_society and Boricua College campus at, what I ...consider, the front gate of the heights (155th and Broadway). Really beautiful grounds with an awesome indoor and (at times) outdoor exhibits.
Currently have a sweet exhibit of intheheightsmovie journey from stage to screen!

Finally finished. Every spring, we see this great Cherry Blossom tree just across the street come ...to life. Recently I stopped underneath and looked up and saw the American flag and the adjacent apartment building framed beautifully by the flowers.

I like to capture simple, fleeting scenes like this, where angles and curves and composition come together only within the radius of a few inches. Step just a bit in any direction, and it's gone.
Just a few days later, the tree was barren again. Watercolor on 17”x22” cold press paper. #cherryblossom #nyc #intheheights #washingtonheights #nycart #artistsoninstagram #watercolor #painting #urbansketchers #nycurbansketchers #art #manhattan #flag #subwaysketcher #intheheightsartproject

My sisters mrsconny & maritza_parra_crisostomo, can attest that out parents have been smokers, ...literally our entire lives. Even when they were told I was asthmatic, I remember them telling the doctor, at 8 years old, we will open a window 😂

Years later I would learn that this was their companion, a loyal friend, this cigarette has been my mothers “exhale” for as long as I can remember.

Funny enough none of my sisters and I are smokers but often have commented and almost envied, that inhale/exhale feeling. It’s as tho all vanishes once they finish that cigarette.

I couldn’t capture the exhale, since this was taken paparazzi style, but I’ve come to think that the inhale, that moment that you choose to let it all in, is what matters most.

Finished! This is a well-worn stretch of Broadway at 192nd Street in Washington Heights. It was its... usual bustling self when I walked by and was enthralled by the darker foreground against a bright background of diagonals beneath a clear blue sky.

Read. Listen. Repeat.
I’ve had the privilege of visiting Dominican Republic for almost every... year of my life. In fact, for the last 3-4 years I visit 3-4 times a year, going out of my way to learn more, visit more, & experience more of the culture.
The books I have (over 200 books, not counting kindle) are old, torn, highlighted and re-read. I still have so much to learn and so many people to learn from. If nothing else, regardless of how much you know, pick up another book!
Oh and buy local, these were purchased from wordupbooks & thelitbar
brujasofbrooklyn have a great link on resources about Dominican history.
dominicanabroad has an informative blog and tours
dominicanwriters & claudio.e.cabrera are phenomenal resources.
aimeemazara teaches thru art
mamichulasocialclub upliftnyc are organizations that brings the commmunitu together
These are just a couple of resources amongst many.
Thinking of making a resource list of Dominican American and Dominican resources. If one does exist, please let me know ⬇️. #fireescapism *

Today, we had to responsibly enjoy the weather in the balcony. Casita was cleaned and the partaaaay... started with chefmarcela recipe for an “Mexican Old Fashioned” from her #fiestas cookbook & badbunnypr music.
This is #fireescapism. *
