The Soul of San Miguel

Standard

San Miguel is so beautiful; I can’t help but begin to feel its colors, passion and soul begin to permeate my very being.ImageImage

The work I am doing — whether it is of this spectacular place or whether the landscapes of my Michigan are being created — is full of the life and essence of this place.

This piece was created Tuesday — and sold the same day, to a fellow student. I am truly humbled.

Art with Gusto in Mexico

Standard

I’m definitely feeling the effects of Mexico, the passion, freedom of expression, and color permeate everything. Yesterday after class, we sat and listened to Mariachi music live in the town square. It reminded me of the value they put on the arts here, and the gusto in which all of the arts are pursued.

We painted all day yesterday, and if felt amazing. My goal to paint from my heart with a true freedom came out easier than I thought. I’m trying to surprise myself daily and paint something I have not seen myself paint before. Cheers to the process and the joy of expanding yourself!

Here are a few “color scratches” from the first day of painting. They’re not finished yet, but they give you a glimpse of the early stages of the process.
