I recently returned from 3 weeks in the mountainous region of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. Half my time there was spent in volunteer support of international organizations developing potable water projects for small Mayan villages. The other half I spent with my friend and well-known abstract artist, Clemens Luhmann, at his residence and studio overlooking Lake Atitlan and several extinct volcanoes. It was a wonderful experience learning and collaborating together and several paintings I produced there can be viewed on my “Abstraction” page. I found myself pushing into a more abstract painting style than I’ve previously used- a real creative stretch exercise- and am very pleased with the results!
