Judith work is in the Museum of History and Anthropology in Mexico City, Mexico.

Judith worked with Dr. Phil C. Weigand of the Northern Arizona Museum. Dr Weigand commissioned Judith to recreate daily and ceremonial life in this painting. Dr Weigand dedicated more than 25 years to this project. Guachimonton complex sets just above the small town of Teuchitlan, Jalisco, Mexico. Judith went to Mexico with Dr. Weigand and his wife to study, photograph and sketch the Gachimonton pryamids. It took almost 2 years to compile the information necessary to complete the project.

Judith created a 4 foot by 5 foot painting that was dedicated by Dr. Weigand for the Jalisco state room in the Museum of History and Anthropology in Mexico City, Mexico.
