As A painter, my endeavor is to use the power of Light & Dark to it's maximum effect in order to capture the inner psyche of each individual. I strive to do this not by just isolating the main focal point, but using the Positive & Negative space to fuse together the main subject with its immediate surroundings; showing how one is affecting the other, creating a bond between all involved, much like the symbol of Ying & Yang.

I love the artwork Ernesto.
You have your own wonderful style that takes the viewer into the painting to feel the movement of the story. Your painting style is bold, impressive and inspiring. The subject matter of your artwork is wonderful.
