Corpus Christi, Downtown Artwalk is here again!

Friday is Corpus Christi’s monthly Artwalk and I plan on setting up a table and sharing my art with you.

I will be at Supreme Lending, it is located at

509 Lawrence, Suite 201
Corpus Christi, TX 78401

It is just down the street from the main hub of the Artwalk at La Retama Park.

If you stop by, I will have Black and White Photography prints, Color Photography Prints, Ink Drawings,Paintings, Pencil drawings,  Watercolors, Jewelry and more.

I may even have some very new work hanging up inside Supreme Lending. But we will see.

I have spent the last few months, painting, organizing, packaging and preparing to show my work and share my love of art with others and all this hard work is finally showing me that this is what I was meant to do.

Why? Because I love doing this and it makes me happy.

I feel so fortunate that I have this opportunity to do something I really love to do and I know that regardless of what happens, I will always love creating art.

So this Friday if you are looking for something fun and interesting to do, go to  Downtown  Corpus Christi and see some great artwork and come and say hi! It will be worth your while.

On another note, I am featured on a blog by

Art that makes you want to reach out and touch-Texture in Art

Texture in Art and Photography is a favorite theme for me. To me it shows depth and it almost seems to be begging you to reach out and touch, reach out and feel. (Okay, Don’t do this at a museum. I don’t think they would like for you to touch their paintings from the Masters).

Anyway, there are some images I like to create that are full of texture. It may be an abstract of some sort with no real theme, but it does have something special about it. The texture is rich. These are two photographs I took when I was out and about looking for interesting subjects to photograph and I came across this old building. The colors of the brown and blue attracted me and I ended up with this.

Onto another place, I was a little disappointed I could not find any cute flowers to shoot. This one part of town had a lot of construction going on and I saw this pile of concrete pieces and I thought, “Hey, this could make for an interesting piece of art. This is what I got out of that.

Art Prints

In art, oil paintings that seem the most beautiful to me are those with a lot of texture, where the paint is piled on thickly but with that comes a beautiful image rich in texture. I mostly work with acrylics and I am still working on achieving that thick textured look but here are a couple of pieces that I think go nicely with this blog.

I LOVE-Paintings I Love website

Paintings I love – Brigitte Cadena

Sure it’s a play on words but I just couldn’t resist.

This is a website that is FOR the Artist. I stumbled onto this site this summer and had it in my mind I would give it a try. This site is for the artists to showcase their paintings and get feedback on their work.

I was seriously wanting to get some feedback on some of my latest work in painting and this is the best place I have found so far.

Michelangelo was adament in his time that he considered himself first a sculptor before he was a painter. According to Art History he never wanted the commission of the Sistine Chapel but the Pope insisted that he do this job or risk future jobs he was negotiating.

You see, I love all art. I really do and when I set out to try a new medium or technique-I just dive right in-no life saver vest or anything. However, I have been doing photography for so many years, it comes so naturally for me, I don’t even think twice when I have my camera in my hand, I click away.

As far as drawing and painting, I taught myself to draw through much trial and error back in 2008. When I first started drawing I really believed I was only capable of drawing little stick figures. As I continued on with this I got better and better. Charcoal is a favorite of mine, I love working with the different tones and values that charcoal as messy as it is allows. Painting is much more new to me than drawing and taking pictures. So yes I wanted to see what others, artists like myself thought about my work. And I found this great website:
Paintings I love – Brigitte Cadena that offers me just what I needed.

If you are an artist and you want to get some good constructive feedback for your work or new pieces, this is the place to join. The people are friendly and encouraging and you will be among some wonderful talented artists from all over the world.
