Calle Typica, San Miguel
The first painting I ever did in Mexico. San Miguel de Allende is truly a visual feast and the people were very tolerant of us setting up our easels on the streets. One woman approached Kelley and I one day to see if she could sit for us. (for a fee of course) She did not speak English, I did not speak Spanish, and I was a little skeptical, however, she did sit for us. When Ros joined us, she knew who she was because she offered to sit for her too in the past! Turns out, she appears in the Parroquia scene of "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" as an extra! I no longer have that painting...I'll have to catch her again on my next trip.
