Mexico Travel Journal Winter 2017 p2

1/12/2017

After exploring the old city, (viejo Vallarta), we grabbed a table curbside, ordered a couple cerverzas, and pulled out our sketchbooks.  Gardens are everywhere in Mexico.  On the rooftops, they take the form of massed pots of geraniums and tropical greenery along the railings.  In choosing this subject, I was struck by how lush the fauna grows.  The jungle rises directly from the sea along the mountainsides.  In this sketch, you will notice the Wandering Jew vines growing right out of the brick and mortar.  Imagine such a phenomenon in arid Colorado!
