I thought of creating an original “make believe movie ” poster that signifies the brave men of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police of that time.I want to stay true to the pulp fiction look of that era, by creating a theatrical scene in the image of a damsel in distress, rescued by a heroic officer on a majestic horse in the midst of a fire catastrophe.This is my story formulated from an inspiring RCMP Musical horse parade that I saw. And it’s just my way of paying tribute to their magnificent deeds that encourage me to paint the real “Shadows of Green Timbers”.

"Downtown Vibe"
Her hair shines like the mountain and the city is written all over him. Go for a walk, take a short cruise along the ocean or simply hike the nearest mountain and you're back at the same place where you stood within the day longing to discover more.

 “Dance the Night Away” 
​I caught upon this couple at the Copper Club Lounge (along North Road & Lougheed).
These two were rulers of the dance floor. The lady was radiantly attractive and graceful and the aged gentleman was completely in control of whatever form of dancing they possessed.It’s not just tango nor swing; I believe it was a fusion of everything. I was able to paint their emotions and some hints of motion that they projected. I enjoyed that night of good music and the rare movement of artistry that happened all around me. It made the night beautiful, although it quickly slipped away.

Chito Maravilla

“The City’s Fireworks Display” is about 
the celebration of life.
It is inspired by the Stanley Park and English Bay landscape,
​capturing the energy of the people and the beauty of the city. The painting represents the artist’s collective thoughts of events rendered in a whimsical approach.These are images he witnessed, felt and experienced; wherein love and romance is everywhere, were children are brought into a promising future and the colorful diversity of the people  are shared as one within the gorgeous landscape benefiting us in luxury.

"Her Shoes"

First seen on the internet with a European name but Asian made origin. Pre-ordered and delivered to the doorstep. Made her first appearance for a job interview Downtown. Partied later to celebrate new job. Strutted the streets of Robson, crossed the border on weekends, endured the daily commute from Waterfront to King George station. For years she has proven to be strong and beautiful all season through. As she ages,she becomes even more beautiful. I love her but I'm donating her to a charitable place where she can be useful and appreciated.
