There might be numerous reasons for painting inspired on nature, but one of the main reasons is its beauty and comprehensibility.

The only risk while appreciating daily this painting, is that it would make you feel as if you belong to the place portrayed and you would only be compelled to say, “How I Wish I was there!”. There is no need to find the hidden meaning behind the painting, but instead all you need to do is look and immerse into the beauty of this marvelous piece of art.


In 1998, Fundación ProAves with the support of the Fundación Loro Parque, initiated the yellow-eared parrot project with the main objective of ensuring the survival of the species and to protect their habitat in the Colombian Andes. 10 years later we continue working steadily and dedicated with the purpose of ensuring that the populations of Yellow-eared Parrot (Ognorhynchus icterotis) are healthy and stable.

This project is a conservation model that has been replicated to other endangered species and to the establishment of protected areas throughout Colombia. During these 10 years the project has involved more than 180 people and 47 organizations worldwide, adding the essential contribution and effort of different communities and the success in the specific activities in research, conservation and education, allows us to proudly claim that thanks to the efforts done, the species have now a hopeful future. Of 81 individuals found in 1999 we can now report that the population exceeds over 1000.

This highlights a strong commitment to the species, its habitat and local communities. We are now confident that future generations will know and cherish this dream and this species. ProAves owes its birth and growth to the Yellow-eared Parrot and support of Fundación Loro Parque.
