Diptych of a man and a woman

The desire for the masculine continues to play a role in my life.
Now a man appears in this diptych.
I like it when my inner process shows up in my paintings.
It helps me to get more clarity about a theme.




I just returned from a trip to Guatemala, where I visited a school project that is initiated and fundraised by Dutch people.
The name of the project is Niños de Guatemala.
The schools are in the poorest districts of Antigua, where a lot of the people are illiterate.
It was wonderful to see how the schools are thriving, even though more money is needed for raising the level of skill of the curriculum for teaching English.
I had the privilege of leading a painting workshop for 30 mothers, teachers and children.
All participants were eager to be painting and we loved the result.
