The Glow - $99

 The Glow - Branches Glowing At Night

I love the way the effects of the lighting on the branches turned out with this painting. Instead of using a painting knife or brush, I decided to create the tones in the background using a household sponge. After that came the tree and branches. Lastly, came the highlights in glowing sage green.

What would the world be like without trees? We would certainly miss their beauty. Think about the changes in colors from season to season, the rustle of leaves under our feet, the beautiful green of the evergreen trees standing in the white winter snow. What are some other beautiful things about trees?

A summer without trees would be much hotter. Trees give us shade and help cool the air. Trees “drink” huge amounts of water each day through their roots. Some of that water passes through the leaves into the air to give us moisture. Trees also help clean our air by taking the part of it we can’t breathe (carbon dioxide) to make their own food. As they do this, they make oxygen, which is the air we breathe. Many animals would be without homes and food if there were no trees. Birds, squirrels, bugs,and mice are just a few of the animals that live in and around trees. These animals and others get much of their food from trees. Bark, nuts, leaves, and fruit are tasty treats for many animals—and for
people, too.

It's A Jungle Out There - $99

This is a beautiful 36 X 36 sofa sized painting titled "It's A Jungle Out There", by artist Joey Santiago. With just a couple of chalkboard push pins, this painting is ready to hang and is protected by 2 coats of medium gloss varnish.


It's A Jungle Out There - Not all jungles are dangerous

Some of us vision jungles as being dangerous and wild. My vision of a jungle is mysterious, adventurist, fun, and oh yes, colorful. Unlike the scary jungles we think of, my jungle adventure, is much like some of the ones seen on TV. But this jungle adventure is especially colorful. They encounter various colors as they make their journey, from hue blue to fabulous red rubies. The colors are bright and cheerful. 

In my abstract portrayal of a jungle, you won't find any danger, tragedy, or threat. Instead you will find the colors of peace, tranquility, excitement, and adventure. 

I really didn't have a great name for this piece and it wasn't until that I starred at it for hours, that I came up with what it reminded me of, "a jungle". Not like the ones we're used to think of but more that consists of beauty, soothing color, the feeling of being safe, and unharmed.

Unmasking Twilight - The Beauty of Fall

Fall has arrived. Behold the changing leaves, and enjoy the crisp breeze. Let your eyes take in the bursts of color. Transformation is afoot and hope is in the air. It is my favorite time for painting. 

When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. Every season has its upside; however, autumn has a particular beauty to it. Lovers of the season revel in its unique ability to turn the world into one big canvas with nature’s paintbrush.
From warm apple cider to camping trips, there are so many reasons to enjoy fall. Here are five things about the season that will bring out the autumn lover in you.

Although I haven't done so in a while, one of my favorite fall activities is taking a drive up to the West Hartford Reservoir. To see the canopy of red, gold, and orange leaves is so enchanting. Such is life in New England, the perfect place to be an artist.

Beautiful In My Eyes - What Are Pink Dogwoods?

Pink flowers start lighter in color, and then get slightly deeper as your tree ages... never giving you the same color twice! These blooms are even more remarkable when displayed against their own dark green background when its leaves appear.

Dogwoods are one of the first trees to bloom... putting everyone in a spring mood, weeks early.

In autumn, these green leaves turn a fiery red, marking the end of summer and bringing color to your fall landscape.

Gray stems with a bright red fruit and a cinnamon checkered bark offer winter interest, especially with a snowfall.

The fruit of the Pink Dogwood is an important source of winter food for many songbirds, including robins, cardinals and waxwings. Don't be surprised if you see Wild Turkey, as well.

 The Energy That Screams "Rock & Roll" | Joey Santiago Fine Art

This week I wanted to get a little rowdy and a little crazy. Of course while listening to Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" I had no choice but to create something that screams "Rock & Roll". I did something a little different in which I attached 4 separate pieces of canvas, grabbed some red, black, yellow, metallic purple, metallic blue, and then I let the music do the rest.

Music and painting draws on each other for inspiration and stimulation during the emergence and development of modernism. In this case Rock & Roll.


Let's Rock & Roll | Joey Santiago Fine Art

Ok, so maybe you're not into "Rock & Roll". However, this piece is a keeper no matter the setting. This piece is perfect for any home or business. The creation of this piece was a little different for me but it was so much fun creating while also listening to Led Zeppelin's "Rock & Roll", hence the name.

 The Balance Of Shape and Color

Balance can be achieved with just color values alone. A small amount of color can offset the visual weight of a large area of neutral values. Similarly, a small area of warm color can balance a large area of cool color. That was my intent when creating this piece. Similar to "Windows of Inspiration", rather than to coat the whole canvas in black, I used power colors for my base background instead. For the foreground shapes, I used all metallic colors which includes, silver, bronze, copper, gold, purple, and blue.

Balance through color is one principle that unifies this composition. Although the canvas is filled with 2 tones of black, red, and orange the secondary theme can be seen on the multi-colored shapes. My attention is further drawn to the straight line borders, showing that a small area of warm color can offset a larger area of cool color. Hence the name "Straight Lines".

Welcome “Straight Lines” To Your Home/Business

Why not welcome “Straight Lines” to your home or business today? The elements of shape and color is created to complement those brick red walls. Ok, so not just brick red walls, LOL.

Blues and Coppers

It's amazing what you can do with a couple of simple blue hues, copper, and a spray bottle. So this time, I wanted to stay away from the reds, purples, and the other crazy bright colors that you're custom to seeing me use. Unpredictable, isn't it? Well you got to try something different and after all, I didn't want to leave the big fans of "Blues" out of my portfolio. No, blue is not my favorite color but it's one of my favorites on canvas. I blended 3 different shades of blue with a tiny layer of white. The spray bottle of water was enough to give it the rainy, drippy effect. I know, I know, although the 3rd color looks orange, it's a beautiful copper paint, just like a brand new penny. I splashed a little black and added some texture and there you have it. Now why the name "I-ON U". Oddly enough and no I didn't plan this, you can see a pair of eyes towards the bottom, in the center toward the right. Can you see them?

My Dedication To Bullying Awareness | Joey Santiago Fine Art

I'd like to dedicate my new painting "Stand Up" to all victims who have been bullied in school and on the internet. Do not get confused by the title as I am not suggesting for the victims to "Stand Up" for themselves as most times, they cannot. I am simply suggesting that we stand up for them and with them.

Bullying is a distinctive pattern of deliberately harming and humiliating others. It's a very durable behavioral style, largely because bullies get what they want—at least at first. Bullies are made, not born, and it happens at an early age, if the normal aggression of two-year-olds isn't handled well.
Bullies couldn't exist without victims, and they don't pick on just anyone; those singled out lack assertiveness and radiate fear long before they ever encounter a bully. No one likes a bully, but no one likes a victim either. Grown-up bullies wreak havoc in their relationships and in the workplace.

so to all you educational leaders (teachers, parents, etc........), let's stop looking away and let's get more involved in spreading the awareness. If you're the captain of your high school's football, baseball, wrestling, or basketball team, you can be a hero outside the field as well.


The Colors of Unity, Hope, & Understanding | Joey Santiago Fine Art

For this painting, I wanted to choose colors that represent strength (black), unity (turquoise), hope (metallic purple), and understanding (all other beautiful colors). Out of all the paintings I ever created and dedicated, this one is by far the most powerful. So a message to all you bullies out there reading this, you will be out numbered through peace and kindness.

What Inspires You?

There's always a reason why we are where we are today. Whether you're a blue collar, white collar, famous celebrity or public figure, something along the way inspires us to becoming who we are today. Much so the reason for me becoming a painter. I didn't decide to become a painter because I wanted to sell paintings. I became a painter because of the inspiration passed onto me by other great painters such as Jonas Gerard, Gino Savarino, Osnat Tzadok, and Micheal Lang. I was inspired by the way they made paint dance on the canvas, almost magical to a sense. Inspiration is what drives us to accomplish anything we want no matter of our age, color, creed, or religious belief. Abstract Art Painting.

Creating this piece was (you guessed it) inspirational. I've always wanted to create a painting that would detail many different small paintings within one great painting, and as a result, "Windows of Inspiration" was born. Of course I couldn't accomplish this without the help of listening to Fourplay while sipping on a nice glass of Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. Abstract Art Painting

 Got dark walls? Then "On The Dark Side" is the perfect missing ingredient!


If you remember the the movie "Eddie and The Cruisers", then you must remember John Cafferty and The Beaver Brown Band's "On The Dark Side".

I decided to go with a black background and adding some of the most vivid colors that will keep anyone starring at it for hours. Although I intended to create this painting for a dark wall (grey or blue), it also looks fantastic on a white wall as well. Home Decor Art Paintings!

Power and Glory equals black, red, and white!


This week, I decided to listen to “Queensr├┐che” operation mind crimes while creating this bad boy.  Hey I was in a rock’n mood so I decided to create something different a la John Beckley style. Abstract art paintings!

 Again, I went with my 3 favorite contemporary color combos; black, red, & white. There’s nothing more quite energetic, then sitting in a white wall, black leather sofa environment. Some people think of the color black as being sad or evil. Some people think of the color white as being pure or boring. Some people think of the color red as being violent or disturbing. My personal feeling is that by combining these 3 elements of color, a balance of power and glory are created instead. Also, the combination of black and white is widely known as a powerful color scheme. In Asian culture, red is traditionally used as a symbol of good luck, happiness and joy hence red is often selected for festive occasions like wedding ceremonies and during the New Year’s holiday. Abstract art paintings!

Since red is representative of vigor and fire, decorating with red in the home is equally powerful for drawing positive energy while black and white provide the complementary balance and unity of Yin-Yang (dark – light) in a living space. Abstract art paintings!

Much of the paintings that I have created contain the color red and coincidently speaking, most of the paintings that I have sold contain the color red. Don’t ask me why, it’s just a given and a point well proven. Abstract art paintings!

Research has proved that colors can influence our feelings and moods, so it is very important to go for hues that feel right in a workspace. Colors have its effects on the people who spend time in a room painted in any of the different hues. Blues and greens have a calming effect and vibrant shades of red have energy and vitality. In a work environment, calming and energizing colors could be used to reduce stress and increase productivity and energy levels. Abstract Paintings!

 Memories of A City Once Beloved


If you ask me "What where you thinking?", I'm going to be the first to tell you, "I never know". What was I listening to? The smooth jazz of Bob James. I know, I know, I'm a rocker but diversity in music is what helps me create some of my best and favorite paintings. With the exciting colors that I decided to use, I couldn't help feeling and thinking about the memories that I had, growing up in New York City.  The excitement, the noise (beautiful noise), the color, the music, and the city scrapes, hence "City Turned Sideways". I guess you've had to be born and raised there in order to appreciate "what was I thinking", when creating this piece. Any of our great cities for that matter. As abstract artists, we never create what we want to until the creation is done. That's why music plays a big part in the creation of my projects.  Abstract Art Paintings!
