Acrylic on canvas by Caio Fern 2011



yes , I finished one yesterday and started this one today…. done !!!
I just wanted to put it in practice a little bit more.
I don’t think this is going to be the new way my work is going to take. They are only experiments I am doing here. No commitment 😉 

Hope you enjoy.




Acrylic on canvas by Caio Fern 2011

I promised to myself that wouldn’t paint this week…. I have been exhausted to paint… but you know…. last night I had nothing to do so I went to my studio with a cup of tea in my hand and started to look around… I felt like to paint exactly this idea you see on this painting. But I can’t say it started with an idea… it was more like an impulse.
This morning I woke up and painted this as fast as possible… I am really exhausted to paint… I almost gave up two times. But the pleasure to finish a work is still bigger than my lazy ass. So : TA DA !!!!! here it is .
I hope you enjoy.
It is near of what I am searching these last works… maybe if I try harder I will be able to reach what I need.

Acrylic on canvas by Caio Fern 2011 – revised

Acrylic on canvas by Caio Fern 2011 – revised


I know some of you will hate me , you comment being very nice about my painting and on the next day I change it. 
And I know it isn’t the first time it happens. Only this year is the second. 


But I spent the whole night looking to it and decided to substitute the blue part for this color that matchs more with the painting…. it now is more into the initial proposal of the work. 
Before it was too “artistic”….. I don’t know how to deal with things that look like art. hahahah! I preffer to create something that doesn’t.


Hope you like this new version now.

So now I have in my house something that will make the girls say : wow, you are handsome on that painting. Yes I am going to hang it proudly on my living room. So far all the self portraits I’ve made only got reactions like : “Interesting…Why do you like to paint monsters?”. Now it is going to be like :”wow, do me now !!!”
For who have followed my posts here and on other blogs, facebook, twitter…. Gary Everest have worked on this project. Every time he posted a new phase of the work on his blog I got more impressed.http://gleverestpaintings.blogspot.com/2011/06/progress-on-caio.html#comment-form
But one thing is to see a painting by internet and believe it is good, other totally different thing is to be few centimeters in front of it and testify its quality about all levels.
the work is really impressive, it has the right values, it makes you go back and for by all the room and play with the visual effects of the brush strokes.
It is going to be so good to have this by my side now.
The color is really good too… it is a pleasure to stare at this for hours.
Oh yeah,,, other thing I am going to listen with this painting here :
-“Wow Caio, this is your best work ever !!
– “It is not mine, it is a gift from a friend”.
– “Oh sorry, I thought you had learned to paint. But one day you will, don’t worry”.
hahaha! I am serious, this painting is going to make me listen it all the time.

Gary is a painter living in Portland, here is really good and have developed a wonderful work, if you like paintings and life, visit his blog and see if I am wrong.
He paints portraits and had this kind idea of painting one of mine. Not happy with this he decided to send to me here in Sao Paulo.
I do appreciate this a lot. Thank you Gary, this is fantastic and is a Honor to me.
a big hug.



OK, here below first, sure, you see his painting followed by his signature. ( Oil on canvas ).
Then you see me trying to reproduce the expression used as model for the painting , fail. hahah!
Then you see me having an immature attack of pure jealousy trying to call more attention than the painting and saying : “You must to look to me!! ME!!!!”.

And for last I took a picture of the back of the painting when he writes a nice note and sign it again. It is very cool.



I do think this painting is just perfect for what I have felt these last days. I wrote yesterday these little text and posted about consolation prize and life in general. Since yesterday I’ve been fine and in peace with … Continue reading
