Hello all and thank you for your comments.
They are all very encouraging.
AlexB, I would like to thank you in special. Your insight is very clever.
I am a artist by accident and I started my work less than one year ago. Everything is a big learning process for myself and I took all your comments in the best way possible. Thanks again.
Regarding the "graffiti touch", yes, I think it is a little left wing. I did not do it, however, thinking on this. When I started painting I just gathered a bunch of things that I liked, a bunch of things that are an expression of my passions and personality and influences (like music, and places that I've been, etc) and put it down in the canvas. The end result is a bit messy and I think that's the way it should be. Having said that, I am a walking metamorphose. I am always changing the way I think and I wouldn't be surprise if my paintings suddenly change as well.
The frames are a work in progress. If you go to my webpage: http://www.appellationartcontrolee.com
you will see some very good results where the frames complete the canvas in a great way (in my opinion).
This particular paint was a tricky one. Exactly because is a feminine work, very delicate and very minimalist I found difficult to print my rustic, ruff personality without overpowering it. I did the frame twice and now I think I am satisfied with the end result.
You touched as well in a very interesting point. About making the work more "obvious" so everyone can grasp the technique used. It is not the first time I heard that and I am considering some radical changes to make this happen.
I'm considering for example to stick several wine labels into the wood before I cut it, so the frames would be a big mosaic of fine wine labels (God help me not becoming an alcoholic after this!).
Also, I am working at the moment on a different technique where some bottle openers and corks are printed onto the canvas... is a crazy thing that I am experimenting but I think it will work.
Also, I am considering the possibility to use grated corks either in the frames or in the canvas itself.
Well, I hope I haven't spoken too much!
Thanks very much and speak soon!!!
