Paintings from Mexico
This wall was at the church across the street from our hotel in Oaxaca. I love plein air painting. I love being out of doors. But, it has its' challenges: wind, sun, rain, snow, snakes, bears, bugs, heat, cold, etc. With this painting I had a new encounter, a funeral. One afternoon I noticed the beautiful shadows on the garden wall of the church and decided to paint there the next day. However, when I arrived a funeral was just beginning. I didn't want to be disrespectful, so decided I'd come back the next afternoon. That day was beautiful, warm and sunny. No sooner did I get the piece blocked in than clouds appeared from nowhere. There was no longer light and shadow. This little piece required a third session!
Here are some of the beautiful garden walls of Oaxaca. Maybe some of these might be future paintings.
