New Watercolor Painting, "Out of the Shadows"

I came upon this group of women when I was in Tijuana, Mexico a few years ago. I almost didn't notice them becaue they were partially hidden in the shadows. It was seeing the generations of women, working together and selling their art that interested me. Hours spent sitting on crates, with babies and work on their laps, the younger women seemed content, or resigned, to follow in the path of those before them.

Peggy, Great narrative and composition. The kind of art that invites the viewer to participate.

Beautiful & very thought provoking. The viewer can't help but to participate, it tells such a story.
