Yucatan Inspiration

Mexico always inspires me.  Last year, I created my Maya series based on the vibrant colors of the Yucatan.  But there are more subtle colors there as well - in the deep cenotes and caves that are all over the area.  The Yucatan sits on a bed of limestone that is riddled with underground rivers and caverns.  When shafts of sunlight hit the deep sinkholes (cenotes), you get an eerie combination of light and shadow, liquid aqua blues and muted browns. This fabulous photo of the Cuzamá cenote from We Visit Mexico on Facebook inspired a new piece.
