A few of my favourite Puerto Vallarta sights: colourful balloons on street food stands, this one on Insurgentes at Basillio Badillo,
the bougainvillea bushes on Olas Altas and Basillio Badillo, day and night,
the gorgeous, gigantic trees in Lazaro Cardenas Park,
skulls and skeletons,
Art VallArta, the fantastic art studio run by the fabulous Nathalie Herling in which I created these two masks, with the great help of Mexican maestro Froylan Hernandez, worn below by Patricia Gawle and Nathalie. In the foreground you can see some of the works made by Patricia, a ceramic artist who has a studio and gallery in the old town on Basillio Badillo.
I hope to add more colour to El Diablo at home, perhaps a brilliant red and some shiny green for the teeth.
Amazingly, these pieces made it home intact. Ty did a wonderful job of packing them in styrofoam and several layers of bubble wrap. Below are pictures of the vessels that Froylan created.
The red tagine is not completed yet; Froylan is going to add highlights in darker colours with probably a couple more layers of glaze.
