We spent a couple of nights at this inn on a slope directly across from Volcan Arenal. We could see the glowing ashes and rocks tumbling down the slopes at night, but it was rare to see the whole mountain, because we were high in the hills in the ‘cloud forest’ country. One day the mist lifted and we got a quick view of the whole mountain.
At the resort, there were so many colorful birds, that were fed daily on the deck, but the most impressive was a pair of macaws who watched over the place. They were very friendly and some guests were able to hold them. They are the inspiration for this piece. It combines photos printed on silk and cotton, collaged and stitched on more of last week’s background made from raw-edge strips woven and bonded to a muslin backing, with machine stitching.
Thanks for coming by, and have a great Monday!
