Creative Process: Since early 2016, I started creating this new line “Motivator Boxes”.
This is not the 1st attempt to work on a 3D format; I had use milk carton boxes, cigar boxes, tin boxes, etc. My work is a hybrid from previous boxed I made.
These boxes are inspired by Mexican “Nichos or Shrines” a keeper, a hidden prayer for good luck, fortune and future. “Motivator Boxes” are handmade, unique and its contents are careful examine, adding an inspirational quote & holding into gears to keep us moving forward!
Every box is sanded, prime, painted with high quality acrylics that come in different colors and finished with a clear varnish to be protected from dust.
