After a long conversation with a cousin whom I haven´t seen in fifteen years, I discovered a lot of interesting details about my mysterious paternal grandfather. He was born in the village of Guacamayas, which translates to Macaws, in the Colombian mountains. This painting is a celebration of his life and of the nature and people of Colombia.
