My surrealist paintings are always inspired by nature and the fact that we come from it. I am intrigued by both, nature and the meaning of our own existence. The more connected we are to nature, the better we can understand ourselves. I believe that past-present-future are all interconnected and I want to capture this connection as a single moment in my art.
Life is a journey. This journey may not be infinite but if we learn to appreciate its ups and downs (and the lessons that this provides) we can find fulfillment or, as the title says, life can be full of infinite fun! Enjoy the ride! Connect with nature!

This colorful painting measures 24x30 inches with a depth of 0.75 in. The sides were painted so it may hang without a frame or it may be framed if you wish (frame not included).

The concept of infinity is among the most intriguing humanity has ever come up with. There is simply no material instance of it, no possibility of it outside of religion and fiction. Even the oldest thing we know of, the universe where all things exist, has a beginning and end. How could we even come up with such an audacious idea when we never have and never will experience it? I am at a loss to find any idea more foreign to our experience than the infinite. The closest visual manifestation of it are loops and mirrors. Two mirrors facing each other create an optical illusion that seems to approximate an infinite space, as physically inaccessible as the concept itself. Loops—like the rollercoaster in Marlene Llanes’ masterful surrealist painting, "Infinite Rollercoaster Fun"—likewise create a material representation of infinity. The endlessness of the circle, the infinite looping of its unbroken curves, remains one of art’s most visually engaging and enchanting motifs.
