Memories of Cuba

Last year we took a wonderful trip to Cuba.  We spent 12 days on a "people to people" exchange, touring the country and visiting artists studios, senior centers, historical landmarks, day care centers, fishing villages, museums and dance and music venues.  The following paintings are faces and places from this fascinating country that touched me in some way.

Which Am I

Amazingly, for the second year in a row, I received the Best of Show award for one of my paintings at the annual open WASH show. This year it was for Fall Colors.
The painting is of persimmons from my back yard, in one of my pottery bowls, with some dried seed pods from the back yard, all sitting on my grandfather's rug, which I love to include in paintings.
