In Your Face

Vieille Ville (Old Town), Nice, France

Street dogs, like this handsome fellow, are an important part of my street photography.

The Guard

IMG_9271.JPGI came face to face with this guy as I was exiting an art exhibit in Taos recently. He was barking half-heartedly at passers-by. Warning, or invitation to play? I took it to mean don’t get any closer to this vehicle, bud! Of course, he was probably just asking, “Have you seen my master anywhere”?

Another photographer friend behind me said, “That John, he will shoot anything”. He was right.

A FRENCH COW / Daily Painting #1289

A French Cow / Ink and Watercolor / 6 x 9 Inches

My computer and my iPad are deeply involved in transferring, storing, and backing up the thousands of images from my just concluded trip to Mexico and Spain, and will be for some time.

Since I can't access the images from this trip, and can't use ArtRage3 with the iPad occupied, I decided to turn to a subject from an earlier trip, to France. And that now was as good a time as any to dip back into watercolor. So, here you have it.

MASCARA TORO II / Daily Painting #1226

Here's a companion piece for Mascara Toro, the earlier piece based on a Mexican Dance Mask from the beautiful Galeria Atotonilco to visit the amazing home, museum and showroom, all rolled into one. Works representing the crafts of all areas of Mexico, including textiles, masks, ceramics, paintings, sculpture, and more fill the museum. Fantastic.

We had a slow day today. We got off to a late start, but had a nice lunch at the previously mentioned little bistro/café the name of which still escapes me. We walked around, exploring some new streets, sat for a while in the Jardin, people watching, then ended up at the Instituto Allende, for a nice dinner and some stirring Flamenco.

A nice, slow day, ending with a great date in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato.

¡Hasta Mañana!

CAMILA / Daily Painting #1225

Camila and her amigo were working the crowd on Saturday night.

This morning, gari made a tasty fritata for breakfast, then Thea and I caught a cab and went to check out a shop that Rosa asked us to look into as a possible outlet for her jewelry. Mixta, on Pila Seca is the most beautifully displayed shop we have seen in San Miguel de Allende.

The selection of items on display are also the best we've found.

We stumbled into another shop, this one filled with designer purses and clothing, but the most exciting things we found there were two large paintings by Oaxacan Artist Irving Herrera. Drawings, really, in charcoal with some color augmentation.

We had a delicious lunch in a small bistro / café across from the Bellas Artes, (sorry, I've forgotten the name, but I'm sure we will go there again.)

Then we went to see if our favorite shop from thirteen years ago was open. It was not.

By then it was three o'clock, so we went to the movie theater I mentioned yesterday, to make reservations for the 5:30 showing of Night Train to Lisbon, with Jeremy Irons. There were only two seats left; office room arm chairs, not the comfy looking theater seats everyone else had beaten us to. The three o'clock showing had been packed and the eight pm showing had only one seat left. There was only enough room for about twenty five people. We made our reservation and had just enough time to walk to a money exchange for some pesos and back before the start of the film.

The price of admission included a drink and a small bag of popcorn.

The sound made it difficult to hear, as did the heavy accents in the film, and for the first few minutes, the loud rustling of popcorn bags. Ah well, it was a good film and an intriguing story.

At some point during all this, we finally caught the above mentioned favorite antiques store open. On our first visit, we had purchased the lamp that hangs above our dining table, and a nice silver pen and Thea's favorite antique silver bracelet. This time, though, no such luck. Not a single thing of real interest. And much higher prices.

Another nice long walk, follwed by a crisp shrimp appetizer and a bowl of soup at Berlin and a taxi ride back to Casa Laura, topped off another busy day in San Miguel.

¡Hasta Mañana!

SARGE / Daily Painting #1209

I ran into this handsome fellow while visiting Galleries down in Santa Fe a couple of days ago and got the owner's permission to take a few shots of his dog, Sarge. I enjoy painting dogs, and especially Bulldogs.
