My daughter, Nicole, recently moved to an apartment in Orlando where they have beautiful trails and it reminded me of summers in the country. That was the inspiration for this painting, for which I took a course from artist, Angela Anderson, to create this acrylic piece on canvas full of mid-morning sunshine and reminded me of trips to my native country of Colombia when we were kids. I reminisce of the long walks in the mountains and the smell of recent rain on trees and roads when we visited my aunt, Gloria’s ‘finca’, a farmhouse in the mountains outside of Cali. The chill in the afternoon air and ice cold river were our playground and forever live in my memory.
