    Hector, I would love to know where you found your inspiration for this watercolor. Was it on your current travels? Let us know, please, where you are and where you’re going, what you’re seeing-thinking-wondering. Karen Yoder

      Karen: This image was of a man with graying hair who sat before me while I was lounging on Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro. I have to say that my journal is filled with images and words that don’t work out and some that do. This was one with which I was pleased.

    This picture makes me think of the Santa Barbara coast, and the many well weathered old men hanging around at the beach. The guy in this painting seems to be enjoying his moment to himself
