good work--makes me wonder of the people that live there...are they in want? Or is the place abandoned ?

Artist Reply: Thank you Elton. People lived in there when I photographed the home. The smoke rising from the roof is from a makeshift wood-burning comal. This work is from personal reference photos and a few sketches around my hosting family member's homes during visits back home. Sadly, in El Salvador, regardless of the political party, left or right, politicians that promised the wellbeing of the people, have done little for the people but became millionaires when leaving office. There is; however, newfound hope with the recently elected president (Bukele). We'll have to wait and see.
