Landscape Paintings are Windows to the World

This original watercolor painting pictures a scene in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico A tourist takes a break at a Mexican coffee window. This painting gives you the fantasy of being an artist on a holiday in San Allende, Mexico. When you look at this watercolor, can you feel the warm sun, the cool wind blowing the streamers? Can you imagine the strong Mexican coffee the woman will soon be enjoying as she makes her way back to her art studio? This city is a favorite haunt for artists with a community of 8000 international artists living in and around the town. The photo reference for this watercolor painting was courtesy of the artist Flora Bowley who graciously granted me permission to translate her instagram photograph into watercolor, which allowed me to transport myself through time and space into this beautiful place.
