acrylic & watercolor on paper




Basket Maker is special for me. One reason this is so special is because this man was wearing traditional Guatemalan clothing that unfortunately not many of the men wear. Many years of revolution in Guatemala have caused the men to migrate from traditional clothing to wearing clothes more like ours. I assume this transition was to avoid damage to the clothing, but most men in Central Guatemala have not returned to wearing their traditional garments. The women continue to wear the clothing of their clan, but not the men. It was with pleasure that I could share this tradition. Arrives in a 35" X 28" brushed silver frame with a white mat.
