the colourful stratification of oregon’s painted hills, part of the john day fossil beds, were formed over the past 50 million years as layers of ash from multiple volcanic eruptions mixed with different types of soil and plant material from a once present river soil bed.

the colours speak to the region’s geologic eras, and its transition from a warm tropical climate — which supported lush forests with prehistoric elephants, camels and saber tooth tigers — to today’s temperate climate.

 Dream Portraits – The surreal portraits by Antonio Mora

Antonio Mora is an experienced creative Spanish who after an extensive career like designer and art director, ends finally in the art to give free rein to his inexhaustible fantasy, to his eager expressive needs.

He describes himself as someone who makes cockails, realizes from images found in blogs, magazines, and fusing them together, works of great forcefulness and expressive force that do not leave anybody indifferent. They disturb.

His originality takes root in the merger, in finding combinations that leave in the palate of our conscience flavors of evocation and mystery. Images that open a crack in our collective memory allowing us to watch, though only it is an instant the hybrid beings who populate our deepest dreams.
