The following is a statement made by Fernando Cobos:
I always liked the metaphysical and spiritual part of life. A daydreamer creates fantasy out of the normal issues in life. My paintings have been always like that. I get bored with dull colors and shapes and I'm always looking for new ways to change reality into something more appealing. Every artist is a little eccentric, otherwise he couldn't create his paintings. I create people in different situations. My "Nun" series has a figurative style, and is also very expressionist. Created in watercolor, tells the story of these mischievous and curious nuns in different and humorous situations in life.

This painting is done on a shiny chrome paper and was drawn in a style called pointillism
This work is titled "Nightmare" and is my particular favorite
"A Votre Sante Pour La Belle Nuit"
Cobos speaks English, Spanish and French. This title translated from French to English means "At Your Beautiful Night"
"Unfinished Woman In Black"
"Victoria at Five"
Victoria is one of Fernando's daughters (he has five children in total). She was five when he painted this portrait.
Thank you Mr. Fernando Cobos for letting me honor you on the Pictures, Photos and Images Blog
