Aureliano Alfonzo Barrios, born on December 26 in Caracas, Venezuela
Since I started scribbling my first letters, I had the habit of drawing. My favorite were the houses. Always painted with an open door between two windows. All had a curved path that curled towards the entrance. Wisps of smoke rose from their small chimneys, pointing the direction of an imaginary wind. The horizon without mountains, white rose domes representing clouds. Two small curves were birds flying. And never lacked the yellow disk of the sun and a round apple tree crowded.
Were equal to the drawings of all children. The difference was in the quantity and not quality. What I drove to the prolific creation were the spaces invisible surrounding houses, which wanted to paint and could not. When concluding a drawing, watching him for a long time, introducing him, dreaming, giving the life of a fictional movie. So I grew up, blurring any paper that is put within reach of my hand.
Noting this innate inclination, my aunt Carmen Alfonzo Rivas, sister of my father, a painter by trade and art teacher, he directed my first steps in painting. I found the basics of line and color, the secrets of light and shadow, the techniques of oil painting, pen and watercolor. When she died, I left his brushes, his palette and paint tubes. I painted them - when I was fourteen years --- my first oil painting titled "Barlovento.
