My paintbrushes have been washed and put away until the next slow season…. but I do hope I can do a little painting inbetween .
With the two new rooms finished the end of June they were in need of something to add to the walls… We were too busy in July and August so I did not get around to painting something. Well now they are finished, framed and hung.
I really like painting the Maya statues found on sites some still miraculously without missing parts ,dents etc . Quite incredible really after all the years hidden away under rubble,jungle and the likes.
Others I enjoy ,is the painting of birds . Have not tried my hand at other wildlife but maybe one day. I did take a lovely photo of a butterfly so that may be my next to paint.
The two paintings of the birds I did to put in the Toh festival of birds art contest , just for fun… no I did not get a prize or recognition but that does not matter. What is more important is one gets pleasure in what ever hobbies we choose to do.
This last one still needs work to be done but thought I would post it anyway.Its of the God of Chocolate and once finished and the new chocolate museum is opened by Uxmal then I will donate. Mathew the young Belgium entrepreneur and originator of the chocolate museum asked me once if I would paint him something… so here it is.
