Colibrí (Hummingbird) | Gonzalo Endara Crow
Ecuadorian painter (1936-1996) with a distinctive style that was sometimes referred to as “magical realism”. And it do share similarities with it as the detailed representation of landscapes is added on an oniric and bright colored wordl with flying train, sierra houses and egg motives. An sculpture with the same composition as this painting can be seen In Sangolquí
Today morning two earthquakes occurred near Quito. The earquake one occurred near Calderón, it was 4,9 in the Richter scale and there were two quite strong replicas.
I really hope everyone is doing fine there. My family in Quito is quite scared so I hope you’ll are doing better.
