I painted this last weekend and so reminded me of  a wonderful trip I took to the Mayan Riviera and Mayan ruins back in 2003. I love Mexico and pray it will be safe to travel there again soon.

Red Bud Isle

Red Bud Isle  16x12"
Oil on canvas board. $255 + tax (TX only) + $18 sh/h.
I painted this on a paint out at Red Bud Isle near the low water crossing near Tom Miller dam in a Laurel Daniel class. Miss those ladies!! Friends may remember it as I painted it in 2007. Currently working on a diptych of a morning view of the Pennybacker bridge with some light fog. So lovely. Hold good thoughts!!
