28 Mar Fading memories
I’ve so enjoyed the process of sharing my artwork and photos from Chiapas in this blog. It’s been well over a week now, and I can feel the magic of the place slowly fading. We still have our watercolors and prints prominently displayed in our dining room, and we look at them now and marvel – “were we really there?” They begin to increase in significance as we get farther and farther away from the actual experience. The colors, the magic, the designs of Mexico are so distinctively different than our current reality here – the grays and soft greens and browns of the end of winter that we see out our windows.
Tomorrow will be my last Mexico post devoted to the public art of stencils. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this watercolor I painted in Chip’s garden, just up the hill from Na Bolom.
