|The Lake El Charco del Ingenio 8" x 10" oil on panel plein air|
|Light from the Window 8 x 8 " oil|
And here's 2 paintings from the studio, from a photo by Billie Mercer with her permission. I did a watercolor version and an oil. I'd love to know which one you like best. In the oil version I used a lot of modelling with the palette knife to get the old layered look and mood.
Classes continuing in the studio Wed. Thurs. and Friday mornings from 10 til 1 pm. I'm open Saturdays 11 til 3pm if you want to drop by.
The February plein Air Workshop is filling up. It's Feb.23rd to 27th. open to all . Oils, Acrylics or Watercolors. There's a link at the top of the page to the workshop details.

Hi all, we'll be meeting on Calle Cruz del Pueblo this week at 9:15 am. The street that is all stairs no traffic! Cruz del Pueblo begins above Salida a Queretero, just above Garita. So walking up from centro you could come up Correo or San Francisco turn right onto Salida a Quert. and go along til you see Garita below you on your right and to your left going up stairs is Cruz del Pueblo. If you taxi up the driver can let you out there as we will be painting at the lower end closest to salida. If you're driving you can take the next street up the Salida that you can turn left, which is Cuesta de Loreto. Very narrow opening by the little chapel of Loreto. Very steep too. You go up only about a half block and turn left onto Cabello, this will take you to the top of Cruz del Pueblo and there is parking along there. You can then walk down as we will meet in the lower end of Cruz.
Weather permitting it should be fun.
|This is in the lower section with just one set of steps from here down to Salida a Queretero|
|Flowers on the Cruz . Lots of nice landscaping and new benches|
|Here' a great view and can be done sitting if you like. I prefer to stand so that you can get back from your picture.|

Last night's sunset from our roof top!
|A sunset to inspire the muse! The last of July. next week plein air will be Monday morning instead of Tues. We're meeting on Aug. 4th at 9:15 am on Suspiros, just off Tenerias.|
|Here's a taxi coming along on Suspiros|
|On Tenerias just around the corner from Suspiros looking towards Juarez Park, so we have 2 choices tomorrow morning. The only problem with the Tenerias location is the best view is from the sunny side.|
|This was nice with the woman sweeping. We will probably get people walking thru' here that will|
look good too.
