Guatemala – Day 2

I just lost my narrative of the day so I will post the photos of the sketches I worked on today and get to bed as we will start at 7am. I am a bit tired. Walking is our new sport and we all paint standing up.

We had an excellent model who agreed to pose for us as she sold her granate fruit.

The square with an inviting fountain was the subject of my third sketch.

A breeze invited the jacaranda leaves and twigs into my palette.

That is all for today as we will start early to get the morning light.

    Beautiful, Lilibeth! I love the land & your lovely sketches. I wish I could go along w/ you & experience the beauty first hand. I often think about the times we worked together @ Hancocks when you taught me a new word in Spanish every day. Love you, Querida. Marianne

      So good to hear from you my dear Marianne. I was thinking of you before I left…went to dinner in the neighborhood and it reminded me of you. Hope all is well. Maybe the pics can help you accompany me in our hearts and imagination. Much love, Lilibeth
