Mar de la Cruz likewise does paddle art, which appeals to a number of people but not to me because the paddles somehow remind me of those violent initiation rites employed by fraternities. But he also paints on plates (I have two of those at work), and even on palettes (he did one of an owl at night for me and the piece hangs in my office at the Bank). Most of his works in my collection are mother and child pieces (which I collect, aside from birds, flowers and owls) and musicians but he also has a series of fish and fruit vendors.
Anyway, here are some of Mar de la Cruz' artworks that are part of my collection. The pictures don't do justice to the pieces. L-R: the Hallmark Christmas card and a 14x16 mother and child oil panting, a 18x24 pastel piece of twin musicians, and two 14x16 musicians on oil.
