Thur. Aug 26 2010 – Xochicalco

This image is much more impressionistic than my usual work. It has more to do with feeling than with detail. I wanted to convey the sheer power that exhudes from this place, so I used bolder and wilder strokes than usual. I also gave it a bluish/purplish tint because this is the colour I see a lot in special places in Mexico, as if Spirit manifested as a tint over the landscape.

Thur. Aug. 19 2010 – Mexican Hacienda Courtyard

Today’s image is from an inner courtyard, in a Mexican hacienda. The crossed paths, with the cross in the background, were just too inviting for me to resist. As usual, both 600 x 400 and detail jpegs below. Thanks for visiting.

Friday August 6 2010 – Mexican Image

One of my favourite spots, at Hacienda Galindo, in Mexico’s San Juan del Rio, is so wonderfully inspiring and calm, I wish I could work on my images sitting there, in that lovely terrace, with a pitcher of horchata. Hmmmm!

Again, thumbnail accesses a 400 by 600 pixels jpeg. Thanks!
