Here's a view of the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. Some kids came up while I was painting this and interviewed me for a school project. We were all shy to be speaking an unaccustomed language. I hope they got a good grade.

El Tuito House

This is a house in El Tuito, down the street a little ways from where our friend John (of Chachalaka fame) was staying in 2010.

Across the Courtyard at Delphinia’s Store

This is the view across the courtyard at Delphinia’s store in downtown Mayto. That yard is a hardware store from which they sell building supplies. While I was sitting here painting this Delphinia’s son Gerardo was rebuilding the masonry planter just to my right. That’s what that pile of rubble is down in the right corner.

A Street in Tehua Mixtle

Here is a view up the street  next to Liz Adriana’s Restaurant on the water in Tehuamixtle. Sometimes the town’s name is written Tehua Mixtle, and sometimes Tehuamixtle. But most people call it Tehua.

Delphinia’s Store, Mayto

This is the view up the main street in Mayto, showing Delphinia’s store on the left, and Lola’s Cafe on the right.

Tehua Mixtle Waterfront

Another sketch of the Tehua Mixtle waterfront, done while sitting at Candee’s Restaurant.

Tehua Mixtle From Above

This is the view of the waterfront of Tehua as you approach on the road and look down on the town. I sat on a water tank at the edge of the road and sketched this in 2008.
