This painting was inspired by the book with the same title by Paulo Coelho. I was so impressed by that book, his inner journey and the adventure to Santiego de Compostela that as soon as I could, I used this as a subject for my painting. The long shadows, the mountains in the background that look so small compared to the giant sun setting behind, the warm colors gives me the feeling of reaching towards something good, to gain something eternal, heartwarming experience.
