This flower was in the garden of our hotel in Barra de Potosi, Mexico. I kept wanting to paint it a bold orange, but it was a peach flower, so I stuck with what I saw.
Barra de Potosi is a small fishing village about 20 minutes south of Zihuatanejo on the Pacific coast. The town is about 6 square blocks of dirt streets with a few hotels, a few small restaurants, a few tourists. Interestingly, on the weekends many busses come filled with people from Mexico City (about 3 hours away) who want to spend the day at the beach. For days I couldn't figure out why there were so many restaurants along the beach and lagoon, and why they all had so many tables when there were maybe 6-8 people at each location. I later found out. The town is very quiet and peaceful during the week.
