The Shameful One
My name is Sam : “The Shameful One”
La Verguensa is an expression I picked up in Spain. It describes that last piece of delicious food left on a plate, which finally no one will touch. That last cookie, broken in half. One half eaten, the other left on the plate. Then broken again, eaten 1/4 lies on the plate. When will it stop. The final piece remaining- which no one will break again, nor eat. That is the shameful one. A little bit left of something left. These paintings are the crumbs.
Welcome to my blog.
The practice of art constitutes the highest and most unique form of human expression. I like to think of my drawings and paintings as having a sense of humility and accessibility about them while being quite serious about their artistic purpose. They are watercolors, often with the inclusion of gesso, sumi ink and ball-point pen. I pay attention to details. These works are made from the highest quality pigments and paper available. My Artist Statement gives more information on why I spend so much time painting. I hope you enjoy this blog.
