This painting will have an accompany video on youtube very shortly.
What I love about Ecuador is the reverence of all ages. In parts of the parades there are sections for the Queens of the third age- Reyena de la tercera de edad. They understand that all ages can be amazing.
This photo was taken, like most of my parade photos, prior to the actual parade, when people/exhibitors/dances are waiting for the parade to start. They all are excited, full of energy, because after the parade, where they walk and dance for at least an hour, they won't be when it is done. This is the part of the parades that I love the most.
