This tradition is found in many talented people. The value I am depicting is the excitement and cooperation of these groups.”

Artist description: “Siesta is the nap time after lunch. The painting is done with watercolor and pastels. We lie down to rest at siesta time after riding our bicycles. Siesta is typical where I live.  All of the shops close after lunch and people stop working for a couple of hours. I love to rest for a while, especially when it is hot.
