Once again I'm participating in the 30 in 30 painting challenge i.e.:  paint 30 paintings in 30 days.  I'm not able to paint every day for 30 days in January, but I'm going to paint as much as I can.  My theme for this challenge is "Paintings From Mexico."  My husband and I love Mexico, we've been there many times and we'll be there much of this winter (we are so lucky to have the most wonderful house sitter), thus, my theme.  I'll post plein air work while in Mexico, some paintings (like this one) of Mexican objects, some paintings from photos that I've taken in Mexico.   I'll post as often as I can. When I don't have new paintings from Mexico I'm going to throw in some oldies but goodies on my blog.  But, to stick with the challenge I'll only post the new ones on the challenge blog.  Enjoy!

Paintings sold this winter will be mailed in April..I apologize for the inconvenience.

This painting was started at Casa Crystal Store here in Colorado Springs.  The store has every thing Mexican that you can imagine...rugs, pottery, sculptures, masks, glass ware, carved wood.  I love this store.  I've taken many guests there.  These pots were among hundreds in the out door area of the shop.  I wasn't able to complete this in one plein air setting, so finished the last bit of it from a photo.
