Portrait of a Painter at Work

Last Saturday, while having lunch with Eric, one of the loyal readers of AntiguaDailyPhoto.Com, at the restaurant without a name where you get the best carpaccio, quiche and roasted tomatoes with basil and cheese, in the table next to us was a painter hard at work capturing some abstracts of Iglesia de La Merced. We learnt his name is Ricardo, the last name I can’t remember now, and he’s either Spaniard or Chilean, but living for over 20 years in Guatemala.

La Antigua Guatemala is an artist’s heaven and that’s why you find a large number of artists belonging the just about all disciplines of art. Why do you think La Antigua Guatemala and Lake Atitlán have become mayor colonies of artists?
