The Saturday plein air group decided to meet at the hidden Bistro Escondito. Some of the members could not find this spot or it was to far to walk with supplies, but 3 of us managed to find our way here and a spot in the shade. I had watched Amy paint this scene and wanted to give it a try. Decided to use that "artistic license" in my back pocket and change around some of the scene in front of me. It certainly makes thinking about the travelling in the painting and composition harder. I was happy with the whole experience.

I had so much fun that I decided to return the next day and try again with a different composition. To my delight, the Bistro Escondito was open for brunch with a wonderful guitarist and Mexican lady singing. I was right behind them in the shade of the house across the street and thoroughly enjoyed it all! I feel every part of the morning is imbued in this painting.
