Santiago Salvador’s Paintings. And Happy Thanksgiving!

Santiago Salvador’s Paintings. And Happy Thanksgiving!


Santiago Salvador is  an artist from Chile. There isn’t much information about him available, but I love his paintings! (Hola Santiago!). I discovered his Flickr portfolio and I fell in love with it.

Santiago’s paintings talk to me about human connection, which I have always considered the most important thing in life. Today I look at these paintings and they have an extra special meaning, because it is Thanksgiving Day.

On this special day it is important to take a moment to thank everyone who has done something good for us.


As Herman Melville said: “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.”


Today I want to say THANK YOU for staying connected with me through Art is a Way. I built this place to nurture human connection through art and creativity, because art itself means nothing without the people who inspire it, who create it, who enjoy it, and who find value in it.


I am excited to continue sharing my modest grain of sand with you through this blog.


Thanks a lot again for being there and I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving.


Much love to you and yours!

  1. Thank you for all you share, your own impossible-seeming work and the art of so many others. Wishing you and those dear to you a Happy Thanksgiving. You are a blessing. xo

  2. Hi! I just thought it was interesting that I found this 🙂

    I was looking for a photo for a fundraiser page I just started to raise money for an organization called More Than Me Academy (they provide education to young girls in Liberia) and was looking for something that captured the essence of human connection.

    I also thought it was interesting because I’ve come to realize the same thing you mention at the beginning of this post, that life is most meaningful when shared and giving your gifts (I’m also an artist :P) to the world is a way to foster connection.

    ALSO, it’s the week after Thanksgiving here in Canada. A funny little synchronicity I think 🙂

    Anyways, thank you for sharing this lovely art and message! Keep sharing your gifts!
