My Zipolite Paintings

In Feb 2001 a terrible fire burned my camera along with my cabana in Zipolite, Oaxaca, Mexico.

In a effort to capture the beauty of the environment around me, I started to paint. At first they were really bad. I did not know if I could paint.

In junior high I had wonderful teachers but in senior highschool I had been very discouraged by my art teacher, which is why I decided to take photography instead.

Anyways after many paintings I realized I did have talent. In a bizarre way the fire was a good thing. 

If not for the fire, I would never have painted the many painting that I did.

I hope you like them
