Postcards from San Miguel de Allende Art Retreat 2018

We have just returned from our most recent art retreat in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, in the true heart of Mexico. Guanajuato state is nearly the geographic center of Mexico. Our group of 13 enjoyed a feast of sights and sounds, culture, history and art at every turn. During this retreat we worked on 4 different projects in mixed media and oil pastel. Here are a few snapshots of our fabulous week, which went by all too quickly.

Ok- just  one more  rooftop. Eileen, Bob, Kathy, Lilly, our assistant, and my partner, Liz Collins. We visited a total of 8 different rooftop cafe's, but didn't find all of them! Another reason to come back.

This is my second trip to San Miguel de Allende and already it calls to me to return again. This piece includes many of the impressions of my experiences from my 2 weeks there. Ready to go again!
