Spring Sycamore 16x20 Oil
I just returned from a week vacation in Cabo San Lucas. On both the flight out and the return landing, Los Angeles was cold and raining so sunny Mexico was a good idea. I always like to see the local art community when I travel and I was not disappointed by the Thursday night art walk in San José. The evening stroll around the streets included a surprising wealth of interesting local crafts, jewelry, fine art, pottery and landscapes of the area. Much of the work was very well done with both American and Mexican artists represented.
Colorful Local Crafts
Baja is a dry desert with far-flung oasis of palm trees. Lush vegetation along the coast is only where man has added irrigation at the resorts. The lack of color in the landscape is a stark contrast to the patchwork of colorful buildings and the use of bright intoxicating colors in their crafts. The trip was a feast for the eyes.
Lands End in the Distance
A large envelope was awaiting my return and I was happy to see that I was juried into Art Matters Encore! sponsored by the San Marino League and showing at the Huntington Library on May 5.Topics: Inspiration and Art

So glad you had a great time...
I was a bit worried about you when I heard about the Mexican earthquake. Did you feel it at all there in Cabo???
Congrats on the Art Matters entry!!
No we never heard, or felt a thing. Where was the quake? Thanks. Being accepted also includes a week in April into the grounds to paint. Should be fun.
