At first I decided to paint the cup. As always I was interested in painting a picture within a picture - in this case, a rooster on top of the cup. I love the design on the cup. I didn't know what to name the painting by only painting the cup, so I decided to include a small block of chocolate and then I had the title of this painting: a cup of chocolate!

This painting is on masonite and will need a frame for display.

Jose H. Alvarenga

Inglewood, California

Jose’s soft still life paintings are like visual puns. He creates relationships between objects that evoke both amusement and contemplation in the viewer. By devising a clever dialogue between objects, Jose turns a still life into a story. Jose utilizes a classical realist style with a gentle nod to surrealism through his unique subject selections. He is inspired by everyday objects, particularly those with a quality of nostalgia, memory, or humor. Jose paints out of his Los Angeles area apartment, where he also enjoys playing the keyboard and reading art books.

No, that´s not me..it´s an interesting coincidence, but I don´t know how to do sculptures only paintings. I was only 9 years old in 1983 :-)

Do you by any chance do sculptures too? We have a Scales of Justice sculpture done in 1983 and it says H.Alvarenga on it
