Antigua study I – 29.11.18 – water-colour/pen and ink
Four years ago I posted about the charitable organization Heath for Humanity and the great work of their surgical missions over many years to Antigua, Guatemala. The post included a video presentation of theirs for those of you who would like to learn more about them, and you can visit their website here: h4h. Earlier this month I had the privilege of joining them for a week, working with wonderful dedicated colleagues who were making a real difference to the lives of so many; heroes all.
Here are a few of my memorable images from Antigua which include the dazzling yellows of the iconic Arco de Santa Catalina, the colourful pastels of the buildings and the Fuego volcano in the distance, which erupted once again just over a week ago.

A visit to Tuscany in the studio this afternoon.
Congratulations to Hannahlei, America’s (and my) favourite dancer.
Celebrating the athleticism and sublime grace, artistry, strength, and courage of Simone Biles who reigned supreme at the US Gymnastics Championships last weekend.
The teal leotard she wore was to honour the victims of sexual assault, being a survivor herself.
“The colour is for the survivors. I stand with all of them…” Simone Biles
A true hero and inspiration for our times.
On World Humanitarian Day this bouquet from today’s afternoon in the studio is to pay tribute to all those who risk their lives around the world every day to serve those suffering and in need. They are all heroes.
with special thanks to C & V for the beautiful bouquet
