Artist in Lo de Marcos

Only a few more days of my extended stay in Mexico left and I have to say that I have met some very talented artists while here.  There are many musicians that come together and form bands for the duration of their winter stay or have jam sessions where we can go and listen and enjoy some really great music.  Besides musicians there are painters of all mediums and I am inspired by their many talents.  A week ago a few of us got together to paint on the patio facing the beach

and it was wonderful to see all their different techniques and learn some new ones myself.  Being a self-taught mixed-media artist I am always watching for new techniques to help improve my skills especially in water-colour and acrylics.

Where we held the day of art was at Villa del Ray which is owned by an extremely talented artist Lonny Ford,

and the property and it is fun just walking around and seeing all his different sculptures – every time I went there I discovered another piece that was amazing.

Interesting enough, he does not sell his art, it is strictly for his own enjoyment and those that stay at his house and suites.

I have included e few pictures of his amazing and often humorous art work.

 

Until next time

    We just spent 2 idyllic weeks in Lo De Marcos, drawing a beach every day. My husband played with the town’s key musicians, including the Amigos de Lo De Marcos fundraiser and An Evening with Tony and Friends. We enjoyed getting the tour from Lonny of his marvelous sculptures, as well as the paintings by both him and his wife. I am planning to get my drawings scanned and posted with narrative of each village we visited. Did you see the gold dust beach?
