California became the fifteenth state to be included in a national art project entitled The Nomadic Project
Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas are the artists behind this unique
vision. Abraham paints a canvas for each state, while Llamas composes
original music. All of the work is created to celebrate this exciting
country, and the adventures that can be had, here.
The painting, “A Day of Infamy, A Lifetime of Grandeur
was inspired by the previous state, Arizona. However, it was painted in
California. Those following the nomads on their journey know that they
pull inspiration from one state and leave it in a neighboring state.
This blurs the borders, uniting the country, one state at a time. In
this case, the painting was left in the creative city of San Francisco.
The Carla Schmidt Gallery
located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, will proudly display
the piece for sale until the end of November. At that time, the two
artists will have completed their journey, displaying one painting in
each of the 48 contiguous states.
The Nomadic Project
much inspired by the story of this country, as the personal experiences
of two passionate artists. The subject of their work is historic
events, natural beauty and the habits of society combined with familiar
issues of fear, love, family, and success. Whether they have
experienced the awe of the Grand Canyon or just felt insignificant in
an overwhelming world, each viewer can relate to topics addressed in
both Abraham and Llamas’ work.
"A Day of Infamy, A Lifetime of Grandeur
is an acrylic on canvas painting, twenty-four inches wide and thirty
inches tall. This particular piece brings the diverse beauty of Arizona
together with its native beliefs, along with the remembrance of the
bombing of Pearl Harbor. On a more personal level, the painting
symbolizes an unforeseen event that left the artists temporarily
stranded in Tucson.
Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas want to encourage art enthusiasts to participate in The Nomadic Project
at www.TheNomadicProject.com. To ensure purity in the artists’
vision, they are NOT accepting donations. They would rather share their
inspirations through building relationships via email. Each email is
guaranteed a part in the exhibit that will follow the original path
around the country. Paintings can also be purchased through
participating galleries, and the owner will receive an engraved
nameplate to be displayed with their piece.
