Early Paintings from San Miguel

My second painting, after the black stallion, was an abstract of the blue agave cactus that is such an iconic part of the Mexican landscape, particularly in the state of Jalisco where all "tequila" comes from.  It was an easy composition and simple to paint using the vibrant colors that we see everywhere in San Miguel.  This painting hangs in our "outdoor" living room" from which we can see and be part of the garden.
