Back from Mexico!

I have been gone for as month and I've been everywhere! Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Mexico City, Morelia, Patzcuaro and Jalostotitlan. My family is from Guadalajara and I went to go visit, since its been 4 years since I've been there. I tried to paint and draw while I was there but I must was traveling for the most part light. I got to paint and draw in Vallarta with my sister, but that's because all she likes to do is relax and that gave me PLENTY of time to at least draw something and paint with watercolors and salt water. Yeah I wonder if the salt will have any long term effects on my mini sketches?
I found this lady and her granddaughter in Vallarta particularly funny with her umbrella hat and all, but she moved quite fast so I didn't get enough time to capture detail.
In Guadalajara I got a few minutes in front of a fountain but unfortunately I drew with my thinnest pen....AAAARRRGHHH....and it didn't scan at its best. But I still really like the water in this drawing.
This was at my aunt's roof of her 3 story apartment. So, my beautiful Grandmother (also Elba) left the 1st floor to 1 aunt, the 2nd floor to my mom, and the 3rd floor to another aunt. All sisters. I can't wait for my mom to finally take her place in the 2nd floor Enrique Rodo.

I had a wonderful time and wish I could wake up everyday to feel the warm rays of the sun on my face in the most beautiful, colorful, and liveliest place I know of. Mexico.

These are wonderful Elba. You sound refreshed and ready to take on the world. Also, what does success matter without the comfort of your friends and those you respect around to share it with. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have in that treasure chest of illustrative goodness. Cheers Elba! If you want a sketching partner anytime just give a call.

Hey! I love the painting with a grandmother and a little girl. Sounds like you are having a great summer.

By the way, I saw your name on the modeling database, are you going to model for Fall?
