Dear students and friends,

It ‘s been awhile; my apologies for the laps in time with  “Conan the Conqueror,” especially to my very patient collector.

The  recent passing of Mr. Frazetta has made me remember his words to  me “ why aren’t you painting on canvas ? “   That being said, this legend has left us with a legacy of art for generations to enjoy.  To me it was a  a closing of an  era in the world of art and the beginning  of a new one .

That being said ,  I’m taking  this opportunity to announce my retirement from the world of painting figures and miniatures. I’ve been painting miniatures professionally fo over 30 years and have enjoyed it with a passion . It’s time to move on! “Conan the Conqueror “ is the  last miniature figure piece  I will paint!

I have reached a point that I can no longer resist the pull and calling of my  art work of spiritual compositions that deal with the spiritual side of our existence  in a none religious fashion! I have put aside my canvas and panel work all these years  and now I feel it’s time to dedicate myself to my own original compositions  that I have  envisioned for so many years.

Stay tuned for “Druids Dream .  ”  The girl is currently being work on and close to completion!

Enough about me, let’s talk about Conan!

I decided that instead of posting  in piece meal, I would wait until I completed sections and  post the step-by-step ,  for those who are interested to follow, as I post completed sections, I will advise you of its availability on my website.

In the meantime,  please enjoy these pictures of the completed painted  “Conan the Conqueror” statue  painted  by me!

Thank you, for your patients!

Alex Castro

Mi querida Gloria,
Lo sentimos por el eterno descanso retraso, yo sólo quería decirle lo muy tocado y afortunada que soy al tenerte como amigo en FBook …
Gloria eres tan atractiva que yo quería que usted considere enviarme alguna foto de ti mismo para un retrato de usted por mí, un primer dibujo y nos gusta quizá la pintura al óleo,
Por favor, pensar en ello y que me haga saber sus pensamientos ..

Saludos cordiales,
Alex
