I first discovered Walfrido's painting's 9 years ago. I instantly loved his vibrant, dramatic style, which I feel really manages to capture the 'essence' of the place he's painting.
Walfrido is a Hawaiian artist born in the Philippines. His father Eduardo F Garcia was also a well respected artist and his son's mentor.
Mainly a painter of natural scenes such a seascapes, waterfalls,volcanoes and caves, Walfrido's artworks use bright colour and interesting explorations of light to create beautiful, romantic and powerful paintings.
Aswell as painting and exhibiting his own art, Walfrido is an art teacher and demonstrater. He also produces the 'Art made easy' videos. And, for all who love Disney, Walfrido has recently painted a series of Disney artworks.
My favourite Walfrido painting has to be 'Dockside Dreams'. To look up more about Walfrido and his work go to his website www.walfrido.com and http://www.shafferfineart.com/The_Art_of_Walfrido.htm which is a link to one of the galleries to exhibit his paintings.
'The Moment Of Glory'
And for those of you who love Disney, here is one of a series of Disney paintings done by Walfrido :-
