Back from Mexico

Tlaquepaque is a lovely small area outside of Guadalajara, known for arts and crafts. I drew some of the patterns from the tiles at our hotel. (A nod to sketcher Leslie Fehling for the lettering idea.)

Airport – killing time at SFO.  In Mexico, we took a wonderful day trip to Chapala (a lakeside town) and the small town of Ajijic. I sketched Guillermo as he drove us back to the hotel.

Villa del Ensueño Boutique Hotel was charming… I sketched this view from the dining patio, starting one morning over breakfast and finishing during the following day’s breakfast to get the consistent shadow patterns. The hotel has gourmet breakfasts, welcoming pool, intriguing architecture and tilework, and lovely gardens throughout the grounds.
