#34 "Colorful Crittur #1", watercolor, 8" x 6"

This colorful fellow and his companion (later post) live on the kitchen walls at Casa Amanecer, along with the occasional live one. These little sculptures are common and can be purchased everywhere. Our critturs, however, were collected when we were on a whirlwind trip around Mexico collecting furniture and folk art to furnish our casa. We had a blast going from Guadalajara to Tonola to San Miguel de Allende to Dolores Hidalgo. We were visiting the furniture and folk art factories where we met the artisans, had great adventures, and made new friends. On the outskirts of Dolores Hidalgo we stopped at a roadside ceramic factory and, among other treasures, we found our kitchen pets. The posting for today is "Colorful Crittur #1".
