Oil with palette knife on wrapped canvas
Sides are copper leaf


This painting is just what the title suggests. It was inspired by the colors and textures of the walls of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. There are a wide variety of heavy textures and bright happy colors.

The San Miguel paintings began about 12 years ago and were my first paintings using only the palette knife. The colors are more earth toned and mellow than in work from my other series. I also glaze them with a burnt sienna to give them the look and feel of antiquity. I enjoyed applying paint with the palette knife -- it's so rich -- and soon decided to work that way on all of my paintings.
