Hello, Ricardo here. This is my first landscape in oils. Most of my paintings are done in acrylics. When painting in acrylics, in my case I always here about the superiority of oils, mainly from oil painters. So I had to give oils a try. I did, and I really enjoy working with oils, but I cannot say that I enjoy one over the other. I like to paint outside which is great as far as solvents and fumes go, but wind and dust can be a problem. In reality though I am often asked by painters whether I am using oils or acrylics, which indicates it is not obvious. I am a painter who likes to go all over the place, meaning the painting of  Abstracts, Portraits, Landscapes, Nudes. I will continue to paint in both mediums.

I do not concede ownership of my painting!

This painting was taken to Houston without my permission  around 2003, I consider it stolen.
Recently I received this message:


Dear Mr. Calzadilla, 

I purchased a beautiful piece of artwork I believe you painted in 1984. Attached are a couple of photos for you to look at. This is one of my favorites and I really love this piece. It would be amazing if you could shed some light on who the woman in the image is, why you painted her, and what inspired you to do so. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you,
Joe Xxxxxxxx

After giving him the details, our conversation was cut short so he could attend to business. I was promised a return call right after that, and of course, crickets.
