I have been in the Peace Corps since September 2013. Peace Corps is a 27 month commitment, but my host country is unique in that my teaching contract ends in November, which is only 26 months of service. I am painting one image for every month of service and one to represent my return to my home in St. Louis. When I am finished, I will have 27 paintings. They are each 9″ x 11″. They are egg tempera and oil on board.
Peace Corps Rwanda was displayed at the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group Gallery during the month of March, 2016.
Since the paintings used egg tempera, I had a workshop where we painted Easter eggs with egg tempera.
During the show I sold 14 out of the 27 paintings, and all proceeds will go to fund a Peace Corps project in Rwanda.
