These works are from travels to Peru and Costa Rica, New Mexico, Arizona and other places in the USA. I have wanted to go to Machu Picchu since I was a child and needless to say this was a dream come true. The awesome majesty and incredible serenity of the the Andes I will carry with me always. Arequipa was amazing in another way. The Santa Catalina Nunnery was so colorful that everywhere one looked was a painting waiting to be done. The exotic and exquisite nature of Costa Rica was my first real exposure to a more humid verdant climate. I look forward to exploring more of the Americas.
