Illustration Friday - Together

I have titled this "The Other Three Graces - Grace Martinez, Grace Ramirez and Grace Lopez." Hand painted silk original is already sold. Its a tribute to the lovely and sassy women of Belize, you know who you are!
I thought I would take a few minutes to kill time. Killing time is the same as passing time, only its more productive. I'm in Guatemala City at a little boutique hotel, waiting for the shuttle to Antigua to arrive to carry me there. I was sponsored by the Guatemalan government to attend a Central American Artisan and Craftsman show. I attended last year on my own, staying with friends (who actually were the REAL sponsors), and fortunately got sponsorship this year from the Guatemalan Government. Its exciting to see the NGO projects come to fruition and bring their products to market, to help alleviate poverty.
On the downside, I have injured my knee again seriously. Its not broke, but it might as well be, I'm shuffling along the cobblestones on crutches. One step at a time.

Ow, ow, your poor knee, how did you injure it...again?

In am in awe of all the work you do, not just for yourself, but to help others.

Wow, that is some work of art, The 3 Graces. It will bring great joy to the owner, I hope.
