"When Belizean artist Pedro Cruz accepted CLICO's invitation to paint his vision of the Caribbean dream for the company's Regional 2004 Art Calendar Competition, little did he imagine he would be winning U.S. $25,000 prize.

Cruz is just back home from Port-of-Spain, Trinidad where he received his prize at a gala reception to launch the calendar at the Trinidad County Club, in Maraval, Port-of-Spain on December 1, 2004..."

"The twelve winning art pieces were displayed at Piarco International Airport in Trinidad from December 3 through the 20th..."

From Pedro:

"Well the picture depicts a beautiful Garifuna woman with a child. My life, it means that life of the lady that had an unfortunate situation with somebody and now has a child to take care of. Also, the word Esperanza is the name of a beautiful person, which also means hope in English. So a combination of that, why I picked that theme for my painting is just like many Caribbean countries, it’s a young beautiful country that we have, but because of foreign participation in our countries, like for example Britain and France, all these countries that abandoned us, they left us to take care of ourselves. And that is one of the issues that I used a lot and my emotional feeling when I was in the painting.”
