New show starting todayat the Creperie in Ajijic

November was much busier than expected and mostly with non art related activities.  It was terrific that the Ajijic Society of Arts were able to have the show "The Nature Of Mexico" go for an extra two weeks until November 20 allowing more art enthusiasts to enjoy the show.  There were many activiites centered in the Ajijic Square and it brought more attention to the show at the Cultural Center.  

I had an opportunity to meet a group of artists painting in Ajijic from Wisconscin.  They had a reception and invited local artists to come and see their work as well as bring a piece to show to the group.  Anita Lee was also present as was local artists Belva and Enrique Velazquez.  It was a wonderful evening of art and art material discussion as well as general chatter and fun!

PAINT OUT AJIJIC was a great success.  13 attendees enjoyed comraderie and fun as we painted for 3 hours and enjoyed the benefits of painting outside and near the "Creperie" and the Ajijic Malecon.  Weather for the event was perfect with cooler temperatures and a slight breeze ensuring all participants were not affected by too much sun!  40 people cast their votes for the People's Choice and I'm happy to say I was the popular vote for my painting "Orange Tree"!

Today, December 4th, the Guild is putting up a new exhibit at our regular location and they will have the show "Artful Reflections" up until January 2016.  17 artists will contribute work and I have chosen "Talacapaque" and "Gate Entrance" as my two pieces for the show. Opening this evening is from 4-6pm.

There is an opportunity to possibly be part of the Fabriano, Italy show in April, 2016 so I am busy trying to paint for the jury.  

Feliz Navidad!
