Santa Rita 3

My drawing “Santa Rita” is based on a photograph that I took of an elderly woman selling flowers and plants in an outdoor market on a street in Guanajuato City,Mexico. I was visiting with friends in June of 2015. I began this drawing several months ago and finished it today, December 16, 2018.

Paul Breuer’s statement about his portraits – My time teaching in Turkey was the first time I had been exposed to a foreign culture and it’s people. The portrait studies were my effort to get to know them and connect with them as fellow human beings. It worked, I can honestly say that we share the same trials and challenges of daily life along with the joys. It opened my mind to the idea of being a citizen of the world and not of just one country. To quote Mark Twain “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
