Larriva's Shop Announcement

Thanks for stopping by! I specialize in small, affordable oil paintings. Each painting is one of a kind. They make great accent pieces or gifts. Have a look around, won't you?

I've become fascinated with faces. Facial recognition takes up a surprising amount of brain space. Observing the subtlest of expressions can trigger a cascade of memories and experiences. As a painter, I can use this concept to create emotional responses from simple brush gestures. Paint remains a primitive medium. It is only ground color suspended in oil applied with a hairy stick. Yet it can sometimes perfectly express the human condition.

For shipping to the US, orders are sent by USPS.
