" Miel (Honey) "
acrylic & oil on wood
34 x 28 in © 2002 Gabriel Navar
Inspired by the "cucamonga" honey bear and its label, this painting is a personal tribute to entities in my life that make it sweeter. I suppose the painting is also my way of visually enjoying and combining not only the figure, but also the landscape and consumer imagery. "Pop Art" is one of my favorite art movements.
When I saw the "cucamonga" honey bear, I knew I'd paint it!

Visit my Current Featured Painting "app 4 disgruntled days". It was currently added to my site on April 2013. Also, visit my Archived Featured Paintings, I have about 20 Previous Featured Paintings. Each one of them has a story, a description about their creation as well as some background about their form, content and symbolism. Looking at the Previous Featured Paintings page I realize that I have had a wide range of interests over time in the figurative, narrative work that I have created over the years. I hope you can appreciate that an element that ties my work together is my desire to create thought provoking compositions that involve the figure, rich colors, and, often, the human theater.
If you enjoy the Featured Paintings know that it is updated three times per year on April, August and December. Please do return !
