Sobre pampaparaíso :

Esta serie de trabajos se llama
 pampaparaíso.
Son cuadros sobre nuestra naturaleza cercana: Ceibos, Jacarandaes, Palos Borrachos, kinotos, soja, pastizales y pampa.Se trata de una visión idealizada de la naturaleza, celebrada, de mucho color y luz.

La técnica es compleja, combina la tecnología con la pintura mas académica.
Se trata de 'collages' digitales, una composición hecha en la computadora en base de cientos de diferentes fotografías que saqué en Buenos Aires y la Pampa, impreso luego sobre tela, y terminado a mano con pintura y en algunos casos hasta volúmenes, como por ejemplo las espinas del palo borracho que salen hacia afuera de la tela.
