Seeing the rainforest the way I do

Starting tomorrow I’ll be up at El Portal, the visitors’ center for El Yunque’s National Rainforest. I’ll have a nice selection of archival fine art reproductions of oil paintings and watercolors I’ve done over the years. I’m fortunate in that the originals of these images have mostly sold but with today’s technology I can still offer them to the public at very reasonable prices.

I’ve also started offering hand painted journals of different sizes. I’m using the moleskine journal, a long time tradition of artists and writers since the Impressionists first started using them. The pages are blank so they can be used for both sketching and writing. They make great gifts! A friend ordered 20 of them to use as hostess gifts and Christmas gifts.

El Portal is located on Rte 191 in Rio Grande, just before the entrance to the park. We’re there Thursday through Sunday, 9 – 4:00 PM. Come on and join us! Enjoy the view…enjoy the art.


About monicalinvillefineart

I have been a working studio artist for over 30 years now. Self-taught, painting has been as much a part of my life as breathing. I learned by doing. Over 20 of those years have been spent on a little mountain in the Caribbean where my primary studio is located. I recently opened a second studio in Saratoga Springs, New York. I made the decision years ago that the best way to get people interested in coming to see my paintings was to simply be the best painter I could possibly be. Easel time. I put in a LOT of easel time. The gods have been good as I have been fortunate that in spite of my isolation from the art markets of the world, people still seek me out and find me. My work is now in collections around the world and students come to my mountain in search of instruction. My life has been good. I offer my world up to you as a refuge. I believe that is the purpose of my art.... it is a sanctuary for my soul while creating it and I would like it to be a sanctuary for yours while viewing it. I want to dance with you. I want to be part of your thoughts. I want to be part of your memory. Be delighted, please. Delight soothes the soul.

    Hi, Monica! I love both your abstracts and the magical realism. I haven’t looked at the contemporary realism yet!

    I’ve clicked to follow this blog and would be delighted if you’d look at and maybe follow mine: – poetry and thoughts about poetry.
