Sunny Days and Thoughts on the Fence

"Sunny Day" 8 x 8" acrylic by Robin Maria Pedrero

When you see a piece of my art and think oh that's not the right size for my space, did you know that I offer fine art reproductions in large sizes? I was glad to hear the colorful glossy 20 x 20" "Chair" giclee sent to a wonderful potter in Canada  arrived safely this week. And more so she LOVES it! Yesterday I delivered a 12 x 12" giclee of "Secret Soiltary Bird" on textured watercolor paper to a decorator who is placing it in a NYC condo. What fun! I can also reproduce my work on canvas in every imaginable size.

Another service that I offer is working in your colors, theme, subject or shared story which is a commission. Futhermore if a piece is sold and you would like something similar, I do that, however I do not make identical pieces, each is original.
 I have a whole new series of autumn crows. Several have taken roost at the Florida Museum for Women Artists gift shop in Deland FL. And there are new originals shared on my facebook page in my wall photos and some listed in my etsy shop. Curious? Just ask.












"Thoughts On the Fence" 8 x 8 acrylic by Robin Maria Pedrero

PS. Another really cool thing happening on my facebook page are the stories that people like Grace Salter are sharing about pieces of my art like this one;  "Thoughts on the Fence". This to me is a modern female crow because she is next to flowers and male crows would be on twigs, electrical lines. She is thinking of her life so far and how proud she is of her accomplishments. She has raised only two separate sets of baby crows that grew up prepared to face the changing world and she also knew that she would never see them again. However, as she sat on the fence she still wondered how her children were doing. A mother's love never stops..it remains as "Thoughts on the Fence".

Chicago 2010



“Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world." Frank Loyd Wright.


Truly Chicago is a gorgeous city! Each time I visit I am taken by the gardens juxtaposed against the city architecture. I really like that overall the city of Chicago is quite clean. Art and culture are everywhere! The people on my path were helpful, kind and engaging. The video shows just a handful of places where I clicked a pic with my phone. I used a gallery map and went via train, cab, bus and hush puppies from one end of Chicago to the other to immerse myself in art and scout some galleries

Look What I Found!

Although you did not know it was missing on my previous blog post when I was interviewed by Cory of United Arts for Participation, this is the set! In taking some time to organize some files I found this picture which I'd wanted to share when I originally posted the interview here. I'd been interviewed by roving reporters or staged events at galleries, museums, festivals and homes but this was my first time for an interview in the tv studio. I just thought it was way cool! You can see them setting up, adjusting the lighting on my artwork. Yes that's Luke!

Cooler Air is finally here!


"Breath of Cooler Air" by Robin Maria Pedrero

The original is 20" x 16" and prints are available

Leaves and Berries, and colors begining to change as a breath of cooler air touches the trees.
The flowers begin to fade and the birds let us know of the season change.

The process of painting this over the past few months included numerous layers colors composed of fauna and flora. I used design elements of spirals to represent the wind.

Can you tell how much I adore autumn!?
