THE ART RETREAT WEEK AT CASA DE LOS ARTISTAS AT BOCA DE TOMATALAN
This is the poster created by Sally of our class of January 2019: A lively and creative group of people from the USA, Canada, UK and Argentina. Led by the irrepressible Bob Burridge.
We laughed, we cried, we played, and we created.
It was a wonderful week with a group of interesting and talented people. Another very special tribe of new friends from around the world.
There were trips out - to the amazing botanical garden down the road, on a boat, and to Vallarta.
I stayed back and painted that day having already spent a week there.
Boca is a beautiful rural and remote fishing village.
it was populated by gentle very Mexican people, seemingly untouched by tourism, and many many animals roaming free, particularly much loved dogs and cats.
I was lucky to be staying in the Casa itself in a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. We had all our meals lovingly created by Ruby on the floor above my room, the studio was on the top floor.
SOME OF MY PAINTINGS FROM THE WEEK ON THE THEME "MEMORIES"
THERE IS STILL WORK TO DO ON MOST OF THESE BUT I AM PLEASED WITH THE BEGINNINGS
