Why Guatemala?  Many regions of the world combine the magnetic beauty of Guatemala and extreme poverty in parts of their population.  Why highlight an area of Guatemala in paintings?

But…why NOT Guatemala?  A portion of the charitable donations raised by this website goes to Aldea Maya. Its work in Chuk Muk, a village up the volcanic slope from Santiago on Lake Atitlan, has enabled children to extend their education. Theo’s experience as a volunteer teaching art in the school and getting to know the students has confirmed his commitment to those Mayan kids.
