After a trip to Mexico in 1984, I did a series of the colorful walls in San Miguel de Allende. I was then curious to see if and to what extent the Latino love of color translated to the homes of Mexican Americans in East Los Angeles. In the paintings below, the remaining images from that series, it's obvious that color continued to be emphasized there even if the architecture was not.

The former home of General George C. Marshall, located in Leesburg, Virginia, is now a museum and conference center. I did a number of paintings of the interior of the home before it was renovated for its current use. This painting of the General's armchair is one of the remaining images from that series.

A trip to Portugal, partly an effort to realize the romance suggested in the Fado songs of that country, also afforded the chance to cross into north western Spain to vist a village bearing my husband's namesake.It turned out to be a charming place, a favorite of Spaniards and other tourists.
