Blend creates his masterpieces with traditional oil on canvas achieving massive amounts of texture combined with Blend’s signature abundance of motion and color. The original works are very impressive just off the easel, however Blend Cota original works bear a very distinctive finish that elevates the art to another level of brilliance. Blend himself painstakingly applies a fire treated resin finish that brings an unbelievable vibrance and luster. There’s no mistaking that this piece is anything other than the ultimate presentation of artistry, craftsmanship and above all COLOR!

Built during the time of the Great Depression, the Empire State Building has always been a symbol of hope. That hope was my inspiration for this new painting called “Lights of Hope”. The building is lit in teal to build awareness about the Alzheimer’s disease and convey hope to many people that are affected by it. My mother was one of those people, and as I look up at the teal ribbon lit on the building and all of the colors projected into the sky, I see this hope growing stronger.
Blend has generously donated this piece to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. 100% of the proceeds of this original painting will go directly to the AFA.
