My friend Carla Fache is a temple of colors, feelings, movements, landscapes and a painter who is seeking forms which collide with time, space and perspective. About a year ago, we promised to meet for lunch, but busy schedules interfered with our plans. She kept on asking me to stop by her atelier located at Fountainhead. Well Ayn Rand and curiosityfinally convinced me to make my way to The Fountainhead Studios located at 7339 NW Miami Ct., 33150, for an open house recently.

Many years ago we took our first Caribbean Cruise on a Celebrity Ship. We boarded an old vessel that had those huge navy-blue X’s located on the smoke stacks. She was such an ancient ship that we were convinced the only thing holding her together were the endless coats of paint that had been applied over and over again onto her hull. I believe she has since gone to Celebrity Ship heaven.
Mijares is a painter. A handsome, Latin artist who is making the artistic rounds and getting plenty of attention. Festival Miami commissioned him to create the commemorative poster for their 30th anniversary season. The original acrylic on canvas entitled “Making Music through Art” gave South Florida a hint of his signature style of painting which highlights bright, bold colors interwoven with musical instruments. He is an avid music lover who enjoys classical music as well as a Spanish guitar or jazz.
