Antiguan Drummer by April M Rimpo

I traveled to Guatemala for a workshop several years ago and our group was treated to music at our welcoming party. Music was a full family affair with a father and two of his sons providing the entertainment. Antiguan Drummer features the youngest son who was nearly hidden behind his drums and tortoise shell cymbals proudly playing his maracas. 

In March this painting is part of my work on display in the FIGURE 8 PLUS 1 Exhibit at Touchstone Gallery.  My goal in my work is to show everyday activities - a way of life - with subject from Guatemala and within the United States. In each case something grabbed my attention and made me feel I had to tell the story through my art.
