A Pastel for Today

"Santiago" - 4" x 6" pastel on Canson paper
While in Guatemala, there was an old man taking in the views of the marketplace, much as we were. I caught him gazing off down the cobblestone street. He is dressed in the local traje of the village of Santiago. This is a painting that will be in the "Miniature Show" in Grand Island for the month of October at the Prairie Winds Art Center.
