  1. Great painting of the Iris store. Great building.

    1. Thanks Robin. It's still an old fashioned Mexican store. The older lady figures out everything on little bits of paper. Its a wonder they can find what you're looking for as it's so stuffed with things, but they usually do!Love it! Donna

  2. I can't plein air paint with you, but love getting the photos and updates. I especially like your "Globos and Tiendas". Hope to be able to participate in a workshop one of these days. I'm now following Robin's blog at your recommendation and am enjoying it much.


  3. I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
    Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
    Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from, choosing this painting by Cézanne,, to remember my trip by.
