My big dream then, is to travel through Central America playing my music in exchange for room and board, until I arrive in Lima, Peru. Once there, I hope to get a good gig in a fine hotel, where I could live for a couple of months and be able to spend time with my son. This is a pretty outrageous dream, I know, and that’s why I need your help. In fact, this is the main reason I put together my website and started this blog. I need help of various kinds, from friends and acquaintances.
First of all, I need to sell my inventory of oil paintings (can’t take ‘em with me) or perhaps find a business who would like to display them for several months. I would be willing to drive several hours from Tucson to deliver these paintings, if anyone knows of such a place. While I travel I plan to try my hand at watercolors—they take up much less space.
Secondly, I need contacts throughout my route—in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, and most importantly Peru. Any contact is super, but especially valuable would be folks in the hospitality industry—hotels, restaurants, tourist agencies. Also, if anyone has visited these countries and knows of a groovin’ spot where I might play, or where tourists “in the know” like to gather, this would be great information.
Lastly, and this is so easy for all of you. Favorite my website (not my blog) or otherwise attach www.artbylowell.com to your site. This is crucial for my site to show up in searches, something to do with Search Engine Optimization. I need people to find my site, buy paintings and video downloads, follow my blog, help with all of the above, and become part of my Great Dream. I am most humbly yours, Lowell (aka Luis)
