This is a seascape painting of the Beach "Caballeros" in Lima, Peru. It was done from a picture that I took early this year (in Peru the summer starts on Dec 20th and ends on March 20th) . I worked with acrylic paints giving the canvas at least 3 layers of paint and achieved the necessary light I needed for my back ground. It was done in a 24" high x 36" wide and 2" deep stretched canvas.
Shipment is included in the price for continental USA, the canvas comes with a back cover and ready to be hanged. If you need more pictures just contact me to my email and I will send you all the details that you need.
The ISLANDS that are shown in the Horizon are called Pachacamac Islands and there is a Legend from the time of the Inca Empire.
LEYEND OF THE PACHACAMAC ISLAND
(LEGENDS OF THE NATIVE INCAS)
There was once a beautiful goddess called Cavillaca, many tried to gain her affection but she refused and never accepted anyone. However, one day while knitting under a Lucuma tree, a god (in some legends it is stated that he is part demon) by the name of Cuniraya, who also desired her arrived. So to gain her affection he converted into a beautiful bird and flew to the tree and deposited his semen in one of the lucuma’s and made it fall close to the Cavillaca. Thinking nothing of it Cavillaca ate the fruit and became pregnant. After nine months she gave birth to a baby boy and when it reached the age of one, she and other gods had a reunion to discover who the father was. Cuniraya also attended this meeting but disguised as a beggar, when she asked who was the father all the god even Cuniraya remained quiet. So she put the baby to the floor and he crawled to his father and climbed on his lap, feeling ashamed she ran with her child to the beach, crying and shouting. She did not notice that Cuniraya was following her behind, removing his rags and unveiling a handsome god. She then jumped into the sea where she and her son turned into the islands, the little island is said to be the son.
