Cordillera del Paine, Patagonia, Chile

It was a dawn boat ride across Lago Pehoé that began a day of supreme wonderment. The 10 mile trek to reach the plateau of the Valle Francés was one filled with ancient forests, bridges hanging high above rushing and deafening rivers, and breathtaking vistas.

Patagonia, Chile

At the end of the world, there is beauty everywhere.
A mythic, far away land with a history of inhabitants dating back 8000 years, Patagonia is surrounded by great natural barriers, the sea, the mountains and ice fields.
My journey there last month was one filled with exploration and wonder.
It lead me to reflect upon the color ways of my art and how much I include the hues of the natural world in my figurative works.

It is filled with over 1000 rarely seen paintings, mostly self-portrait gifts from master painters beginning in the 16th century.
