San Miguel de Allende

I spent this year's February vacation in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. with my friends Kelley Macdonald and Paula Villanova who were running their "San Miguel Painting Adventure with Kelley and Paula" workshop.  It was magical.  A month later, my senses are still activated by the sights, colors, sounds, tastes, and the feel of the air.  I loved this week spent with my daughter and with friends old and new.

Can't wait to go again.

"At Le Jardin" watercolor & ink 11 x 14 - sitting in the canopy of shade trees, this view of La Parroquia is mesmerizing, changing colors as the sun moves.

"Looking Up" ink and watercolor - watching people while sitting in the garden outside Templo de San Francisco.
"Cafe y Churros" ink and watercolor - lovely spot for a cafe, people watching and naturally, churros

"Back Patio" ink & watercolor - rooftops from our hotel's rooftop deck

"Lavaderos del Chorro" ink & watercolor - lovely historic spot where women would gather to wash the clothes.

    1. Thanks, Jo. We had a wonderful time. I have been using a lot of my drawings and photos from the trip as inspiration for paintings. I am living in that beautiful terra cotta color!

  2. I love your paintings from San Miguel. You really captured this special place beautifully ~ full of color and charm! What a wonderful experience you all had.

    1. Thanks, Gail. Have you been there. It was a wonderful week.
