August 2020 Challenge: "Not New England"



"Cantina El Gato in San Miguel de Allende" 20x16, Acrylic by Kelley MacDonald While I love New England, another place outside of the States that I love, love, love is San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. Paula Villanova and I were all set to lead a painting workshop there in February 2021. Sadly we have had to postpone it due to the pandemic. It a beautiful place where color, light and history, combined with kind Mexicans and beautiful things to look at are the inspiration for artists of all kinds.


 
"In Vietnam" by Pam Copeman 4 1/2" x6" watercolor
When I traveled to Vietnam, everything I experienced was so different in color, taste, and vistas and I thought this altar was perfect for this challenge.

Hollywood is SO not New England! It's fun for a change of pace though.
