The Colors of Mexico

(Note: Click on an image for a larger view)

I admit I'm not much of a traveller, preferring to nest at home. When I do venture from my surroundings I am invariably attracted to the colors and textures of my surroundings and I make it my business to seek out the local artisans for a taste of authentic craftsmanship. This trip to Mexico did not disappoint me on that score. In these photos you get an idea of the colors and textures that can be found in almost any corner of Ixtapa and the nearby town of Xihuatanejo.

Soon I'll be posting some photos of the beautiful painted wooden and ceramic ware I purchased while in Ixtapa. The colors are delicious and the patterns beautiful. Stay tuned for that.
