And then there was San Miguel...

Magic, pure magic! This sums up San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. I took this photo in a small village outside of San Miguel, in a town of basket weavers, who use reeds from the local river...unfortunately, they were not out the day we visited, but there were so many other treasures to see.

Visit Rebecca Brooks' blog, Recuerda mi Corazon, to find out how you can find your way to this magical place. Word cannot describe!


More encaustic texture from the studio table!

The more texture tiles I make the more I want to make. It's now getting obsessive but in a good way.

In the studio...

Guess what I'm working on today?  Encaustic texture class examples for my upcoming workshops at ArtSpot in Edmonds, Washington. How much fun can a person have?


Pinata-making party near San Miguel de Allende!

During my recent trip to San Miguel de Allende, we were invited into a home to make wonderful pinatas! The family was beautifully gracious, and allowed us to make our pinatas during their dinner hour, in their kitchen, without one complaint! The entire family gathered 'round to watch us "gringas" make pinatas, led by the "master". What I remember: beautiful poinsettias growing above the central courtyard, a black and white bunny roaming freely, lots of glue on my fingers, giggling siblings,  a full moon overhead, love all around and...acceptance.
