Description of The Majestic Ruins of Tikal

I received a call from a former missionary from my mission (Guatemala/El Salvador), asking if I could do a painting of one of the most impressive Mayan ruins in Central America … Tikal. His wife sent me a photo that he took while visiting there over 35 years ago for reference. I was thrilled for the opportunity. Curiously, I have never painted anything related to my experiences in Guatemala … a fact that I will just have to change!

Tikal is a vast ancient Mayan city that had been swallowed up by time and the jungle, and is only revealed by the many temple towers that penetrate the jungle canopy. It is a very impressive and awe inspiring place. I really enjoyed this painting experience. Thanks, Elray …

The original is sold, but giclee canvas prints are available.
