I had one of those half dreams/half day dreams upon waking up this morning and it was of a scene in a BBC show about the Impressionist movement of Claude Monet jumping out of bed one morning and painting his famous Impressionist: Sunrise. Right after the scene finished in my head so to speak, the image of a picture I took yesterday driving popped in my head. By the time I was fully awake I leapt up and painted this. I’m not sure if it’s done yet, or if I should add some flowers or poppies but I’m pretty happy with my morning to say the least.
Montaña Mágica Lodge
Deep in southern Chile lies the Montaña Mágica Lodge (Magic Mountain Lodge). An extraordinary hotel hidden in the center of a 300,000 acre private nature reserve. The small, 13 room hotel is built in the shape of a volcano that spews water instead of lava. The exterior is covered in rainforest moss and vines and its entrance is only accessible via a suspended, swinging rope bridge. The outdoor hot tubs are carved from the trunks of giant trees. The lodge is located in Los Rios which is within the stunning Huilo-Huilo Unesco biosphere reserve, 242 square miles of lush nature, filled with wildlife.
