Almost a year ago I blogged from a vacation trip to Ecuador. One of the highlights was a visit to the Festival of Fruits and Flowers in the city of Ambato. In the art museum there, a series of pictures executed on plant leaves caught my eye, and I sneaked a photo of one of them, titled “Goddess of Rain” (above). Last week I had an email to this site from the artist, Marcia Chauca, asking for help in getting her work better known. I am happy to cooperate. Ms. Chauca’s website is http://www.marciachauca.com/.
