   STORY of MACHU PICCHU & SACSAHUAMAN

here's a episode in my life that is pretty amazing - i met a man at some get to gether with NED JACOB [ the dude who named me BUFFALO - YIKES ] about 50 years ago ! his name is RON WINTERS , and he's an ARCHAEOLOGIST & has been to many digs in PERU [ MACHU PICCHU, ] COLORADO , & ARIZONA [ CANYON DE CHELLY ] he sends me an E MAIL asking if i have any paintings of MACHU PICCHU ? remember this is fifty years after meeting RON WINTERS ?

every artist has an inventory of stuff over the years [ anyway i do ] some guys lie & say " i sell everything " so i go through all my inventory turning my studio upside down & find seven watercolors i'm amazed to find them as they were done 50 years ago when i went to MACHU PICCHU [ i usually sell everything , ha ha]

so i e-mail him & he buys a PLEIN AIR i did at SACSAHUMAN , an INCA FORTRESS near MACHU PICCHU. i remember being there & upon seeing the closely fitted INCA ROCKS said " FANTASTIC " ! after i said that an PERUVIAN dude thought i was saying FANTASTICKS like the plural of stick , so he repeats it - so now when i see something that's incredible in my mind i say " FANTASTICKS "
