Plein air on sunday Aug 18th

We got rained out last week, so we're going to try again for Sunday morning....9:30 starting from my place 22 Cuesta de Loreto , on my calle with no name (Sin Nombre) Interior #1
 In other words we are the first house (green)w/cream trim) on a little street coming off Cuesta de Loreto at orange place on corner. The hillside overlooking all of San Miguel is awesome.
This the start of Cuesta de Loreto where it comes off Salida a Quertero. On the right is a pink stone Capilla or chapel. It is narrow at the entrance but widens out a bit as you go up. See you Sunday

August update

A neighbor lady passing by my scene
This summer has just been so busy. Many students new and returnees. Our move to a new place in San Miguel has certainly taken up a huge chunk of our time. Just our casa not the gallery.
Monday we painted plein air up on our new hill, painting our neighbors colorful houses and met some of our neighbors. Very nice folks.
And here's the completed painting "Looking up Cuesta de Loreto" 9 x 12" oil

Moi  in front of my painted scene on Loreto

The people who walk this street daily are very spry!
A couple of kids curious about us painting their "hood", the funky soup Tee shirt was very cute as were both of them.
