2012 Solo Exhibit at the Community Arts Network of Oneonta
  works from 2010 visit to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

My sons, daughter-in-law and grandchildren live in San Pedro La Laguna, on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. In 2010, I visited there, returning in the winter of 2013 for a month and this year for three months! It is said by many, including Aldous Huxley, to be ‘the most beautiful lake in the world’. Adding to the incredible experience is the beauty of the Mayan lake culture itself with its bronze and colorfully-clad inhabitants, who speak the Mayan T'zutujil with Spanish as a second language, and many who still wear the traditional woven attire. My oldest son has been living there for over fifteen years, and is a 'regular'. Taking my paints with me as usual, I painted a series of plein air watercolors and took a lot of pictures from which I painted a number of works. These are some of the pieces from the show I had at CANO in 2012.
Selected pieces from this show plus some plein air paintings I completed there this winter were hung at The Autumn Cafe, Oneonta, in May 2013.

Below are some of the pieces from the exhibit.
