I came across this image while going through my archives and decided to open it in Snapseed to bring it up to date and give it a vintage look, more in keeping with the idea of an orphanage scene from the past.


The Hat Seller II

Here he is again, the hat seller, peddling his wares at the Jardin in San Miguel de Allende.



How times have changed!

Hasta mañana.



ESCORT / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed

I love shooting street photography. I love Mexico City. Put the two together and I'm a happy boy. Plus, I get some exercise, a lot, really. And I drink a lot of that delicious, fresh squeezed orange juice.

Then, when I just can't walk any more, I sit and sketch, people, mostly, on my iPhone.

Of course, Mexico City isn't the only place I like to do these things. Nice, France is another favorite, as are the cities and towns of southern Spain. Buenos Aires in Argentina, though I've only been there one time is high on my list.

OK, I guess you can tell I'm getting really homesick for all the places I've been and all those I've yet to explore.

Soon. Just wrapping up a couple of last minute projects. More about those beginning tomorrow.

Hasta mañana.


AT AN EXHIBITION Daily Painting #780

At An Exhibition


Oil on Paper on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

If you would like to own this painting, just email your bid to: bid@johnfarnsworth.com

This quick study of a group at an exhibition is mainly about gesture and attitude. Also, as in much of my work, it’s largely about the rhythms and patterns of the negative spaces, the relationship of edges to one another. And then there’s the small woman on the left. With that raised hand, we have to wonder what she’s saying to the large man? She certainly seems energetic.

Somehow it just seemed appropriate to paint some quarter horses in tight quarters since views on A Farnsworth A day just hit the quarter million mark. Scroll down to Whoopie!!! for more on that.
