Watercolors from El Salvador

It's been a week and a half since I returned from an amazing well drilling trip to a small village in El Salvador. I splurged on a nice sketch pad and brought my travel watercolors (same set I brought to India in 1999!). Some of my favorite moments (besides seeing that clean water shoot up from the ground, of course!) included time sketching with kids gathered around me and nights painting at the team house. Here's The Clinic where we did hygiene training with the women and kids (and piñata making as the painting shows…also, notice one of the old wells on the right — too shallow for access to clean water), the new well with plaque text, a little house I saw from the road and bits from around the yard at the team house.
