Good Luck To Ecuador

t was very exciting to be requested to do a painting representing Ecuador in the 2017 World Rowing Championships which takes place in Sarasota from September 24 through October 1st. An image of my painting is going to be made into a billboard to be displayed during this event in which 68 countries are taking part. The background of the painting is in the colors of the national flag of Ecuador: yellow, blue and red. These colors also run throughout the painting which is done in a traditional Ecuadorian folk art style mixed with my own style (whatever that is). Ecuador has four distinct regions: the Andes, the Amazon, the Pacific Coast and the Galapagos Islands. Elements from each region are incorporated.

Michael H. Hanson Does It Again

I can’t get over how Michael so beautifully conveys what I’m trying to paint.
