Campesina Collecting Water
Artwork by Luis E Sevilla
I’m a 65 years young men with a gift of God at birth. I discover that I was able to draw at a very early age, I’ll guest I was about 6 years old. I grew up drawing a lot during my early years when I discover how good I feel creating thing on paper with my own hand and brain.
When I grew up to my adolescence age I tend to slow down with my passion since I felt more responsibility getting into high school and latter on to pursue my engineering degree in civil engineering at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Nicaragua (UNAN).
I was born in the City and Port of Corinto a small Island in the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. I came with my wife to USA in 1979 and start working as an Structural engineer in the Oil and Gas Industry until my early retirement in 2011 due to illness. During my years as an Structural Engineer I start painting in different media as oil and pastel and recently in my retirement I start painting for a first time in Acrylic. Unfortunately I have not been as prolific as I would like to be with my art work.
The most important thing is that I’m on my track once again and I feel that I still got. I have never received any art lesson and I know that I need to learn more technique.
Please, review my work that I’m submitting. The painting is inspired by the remembrance of the daily life in my lovely Island, when thing where very simple and not potable water existed in the town. There were several public places where people collected free water from a well.
I need it to win not only for my ego, but to get the incentive to continue my art work, to help to continue with my passion.
I feel it is never to late to recoup the years I missed by building my career. I have more work to show you, please help me to win.
The work is in acrylic measure it approximate 22″x28″.
