It has been a somewhat artistically slow year. With children demanding so much energy and attention, I have not been seeking exhibitions and accepting exhibition proposals only reluctantly. Sales have been mostly limited to existing collectors who are buying their third, fourth, fifth, etc paintings of mine. However, there have also been a few new collectors, which is always a good thing. Two of my friends from San Andres Huayapam have acquired works of mine. Meanwhile, I have been financially supporting several Ukrainian artists in the midst of the madness with all of this talk of war. I have purchased paintings from three Ukrainian artists this year, but now I have to save money for a building project. As always, your support of my work is deeply appreciated!
