Mexico Paintings

I worked on two paintings from sketches I'd done in Mexico.  They are both not-my-usual in terms of subject matter, but they capture two views and the feeling of open space that comes from looking out over the Pacific ocean.

this was as I was working from the sketch.  I had to make a decision about whether to put detail into the band of lighter color that you could see through the leaves.
