          Juvenal Sanso painted with a brush of a Realist, but with a mind of a Contemporary artist, creating his own dimension between surrealism and romanticism.  His insipid subjects transformed into his very own world of poesy.

          Over a dark abandoned valley is a powerful sky that brings out pain, miracle and glory.  In this work, Sanso painterly creates a powerful dusky red-orange sky.  The masochist in each will figure that the amount of melancholy it brings is very pleasing.  The dramatic sky and the darkness brought by the valley and its trees is another of the master’s genius experimentation to bring artistic equilibrium.
