The art of miniature pots in Guanajuato

How wonderful to visit this 74 year old artisan in Guanajuato.

Pomegranate Dream

Here is an example of a mixed media piece.
I did a series of ten cards while in San Miguel last winter.

Pomegranate in the garden

My obsession with pomegranates started in the womb.
A thrill for me to watch them grow in my Uncle Leonard's garden in Mexico.
And of course they are a frequent theme in my work.

Happiness is a warm Hug

Uncle Leonard Brooks

What good fortune to have been born into a family of artists.
This is my dear Uncle who turns 100 years young November 2011.
He and my Aunt Reva gave me the opportunity to discover the Arts at the tender and immpressionable age of 16.
Leonard continues to create .

Hospice Heart For 2011

Every year in San Miguel de Allende there is a fundraiser for Hospice.This was my contribution. Mixed media- wood ,clay , lace,acrylic paint,glass,paper.
Many artists contribute. Every artist gets a wooden heart and then embellishes.
It is a very inspiring auction for good cause, close to my own heart.
