I live in a small town in Ecuador called Banos de Agua Santa. It is 7 km from the active volcano "Tungurahua". The locals call her Mama Tungurahua. Legend is that she is the goddess of the volcano. She is independent, loving strong, intelligent and compassionate to her town. When I am feeling doubt or questioning myself, I look out my window and have a little chat with her. I feel like she is listening when I feel a wash of calm pass over me. This painting is what I think she looks like as she is listening to me.
This painting was created using homemade: gesso, matte medium, spray paints, and stamps. The directions and recipes and many more are available through my book, "Homemade Art Supplies a survival guide for artists". I also used Canson mixed media A3 paper, Dr. PH Martin Bombay inks, rotring ink, rotring technical pen, Unibal white gel pen. It is available through Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Lulu, Apple, Playster and My etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/625439871/homemade-art-supplies-a-survival-guide?ref=shop_home_feat_1
