Save the Earth Garden

I discovered the 'Save the Earth Garden' image a few years ago, and fell in love with it -- its vibrant colors capture the richness of the lands I have known and the volcanoes I have been entralled with. I now have it on a T- shirt and my business cards. It is a reproduction of a painting by a Nicaraguan artist, marketed by the Quixote Center / Quest for Peace*

"The Nicaraguan Cultural Alliance (NCA) and the Quixote Center / Quest for Peace proudly present fine art materials from the paintings of Nicaraguan artists. All profits fund Quest for Peace development projects and Nicaraguan artists. NCA pays each artist a substantial annual fee."

"Nicaragua is a poor land, rich with art and poetry. NCA celebrates this tradition in images that mirror the spirited pride and resilient hope of the people."

"Images range from the primitivist painters of Solentiname to the urban abstraction of Solvalbarro. The paintings are photographed under the natural light of Nicaragua's tropical sky. We seek young artists and women artists."

"Beauty is that breath of the spirit
which sculpts human stone
into flesh, tenderness and passion;
into love."
