Seven Acrylic paintings by Robin Maria Pedrero

My facebook friends were the first to preview my recent works created in acrylic, shown here in a small group above. Here is the link to that photo album. I shared on twitter recently how I am experiencing a bit of ambiguity; I am elated over the new works and loving the new medium and style yet feel both a little melancholy and also satisfied that my focus on skyscapes in pastel has lessened. I use many symbols like birds, landscape elements, cups, table settings, keys, natural elements, and fruits and vegetables in my current body of work. I have always been drawn to translucent layering and the medium of acrylic lends itself to this technique quite well. I take joy in pulling the colors of the landscape and sky into the works then building on that foundation. If you click on the above image you should see a large view of the wall. Thanks for sharing in my visual journey!

Isn't it great to change mediums though and just go with what you feel inspired to do?!

I love your use of color and I like the abstract and semi abstract subjects. Being on an abstract kick right now, I find your work very interesting. I also love your landscapes. The colors you choose always make them stand out as something different. That's a good thing, as Mather Stewart would say.
