Original Oil on Canvas
Calderon was born in Madrid, Spain in 1955. He is a self-taught artist with an immense amount of talent. His successes as a painter have grown out of his personal love of natural beauty. He approaches the canvas with passion and intensity in an effort to convey a vibrant sense of light especially capturing the reflections on rainy days. Calderon believes that a painting's success is measured by its ability to capture the essence of sunlight. He feels that without the sun, there is no light, no color, and no beauty. He has mastered the ability to achieve a wonderful sense of depth in his paintings. Calderon finds beauty where it seems not to be present and in corners of the world where you would least expect it.
