In February 2016 I traveled to Cuba with the Plein Air Magazine Paint Cuba Invitational for a week of painting on the streets of Old Havana and in the nearby seaside towns and plantation ruins. It was a moving experience which will be inspiring paintings for a long time. This was painted from a relatively quiet corner of the busy Plaza de Armas, while the magnificent architecture of Old Havana actually crumbled around my easel while I worked.
