Yellow House

Since we are so close to Mexico we decided to visit Nogales for a look around. We walked across the border after parking in downtown Nogales. Cooper is a wonderful ambassador and with his company we built some bridges, no walls for us! The wall is actually in great evidence around this border town.
Of course we ate some fabulous street food, bought some blankets and a gorgeous serape, and took a ton of photos with my i-phone. The line to get back to the States was quite long, but they let us through when they saw our dog Cooper and "didn't want him to have an accident in the building". We laughed and went to the next Customs Officer, knowing that Cooper would never go in a building!
Here's my ode to Mexico painting, 8x10, oil on linen panel, from one of my reference photos with a couple of changes to suit my composition. The sky is mostly King's Blue, an Old Holland paint that's new to me.

  1. I enjoyed the story of Cooper.
    I admire the way you are willing to explore and find the best everywhere.Good for you!
    The Kings Blue goes great with the building color, doesn't it? A sunny day for sure. The van gives great scale.
