Here is the photo I took in San Miguel Allende in July 2010 when visiting my dear friend, Nettie. I just stopped on the street fascinated by the geometry of how the colors of different walls and a window came together. Just a snapshot and I ended up making a painting Mura ( Wall) that is a pretty literal transcription, with a few painterly flourishes, of what I saw that day.
Here are three of the paintings that are part of Sextet. The last one on the far right is called Calle. Look below for the paper collages that referenced a photo and became the painting, Calle.( Street).
