(No title)

Undoubtedly the beautiful Andean land, clinging to the longest mountain range in the world touches deeply the sensibility of any visitor to those lands. Painting them is a challenge, but also a joy. The Andes is my native land, they are ‘my mountains’, ingrained in my memory since childhood, impossible to forget. Piece by piece they are surprisingly mysterious, full of legend and history. Contemplating this generous giant and its imposing peaks one realizes how small we are. The scenic beauty is almost hallucinating; from the distance they feel so near, they take all the space almost leaving no room for the sky; on them the ‘sound of silence’ is all around you.I feel fortunate to have experienced these mountains in real life; they have been the inspiration for several of my Landscape paintings Series (www.sps-art.com) and will continue to be.
