Thank you Rita! and Pamela! and John!  The work evolved into what it is now. It started as a tribute to the Farallones!  It is a chain of mountains on the western cordillera of the Andes that has the Pico de Loro or Parrot´s Beak as the central mountain.  I used only one color, a rusted brown, to paint it ... which I now wish had been more technicolor, but what the hey, that may be what makes it unique.  The Pachamama figure evolved from the notion of a thunder storm, a tormenta in Spanish, i.e. a Torment, being feminine. That is exactly right, I thought, and just so that no one would be uncertain, I put a woman´s face in the blackened clouds. Oh well, the dog came out of nowhere, as did the rainbow... spontaneous elements, but so glad to hear you all liked it!!!

The original element was the small branch in the foreground with foliage around it... just adds the right touch of  perspective, eh?
