A Little Town in Mexico

Good Morning my Lovelies.  It's Friday already -- where does the time go these days.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and the weather in your part of the world is pleasant.  Forecasting rain here - it's been cold and wet as in many places these days.  Looking forward to some sunshine.

I'd like to share with you my painting called "A Little Town in Mexico".  It's 4 ft. X 4 ft., and is my version of San Miguel.  

"A Little Town in Mexico" oil on canvas by Donna Parker

That's all for today.  Still very early here - the birds are busy with their morning songs which makes me very happy.  I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday.

Thanks for dropping by.  See you soon.

You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place. – Miriam Adeney


  1. Perfect quote today to compliment your painting!

  2. Wonderful painting, and so lovely to see you linking to PPF! Have a happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  3. Oh how I wish it was cold and wet here....110 today and 114 on Saturday...ouch. I love your painting....a wonderful reminder of SMA. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are doing well.

  4. That is the most beautiful painting, Donna. It brings joy to my heart. I could look at it all day long. You haven't done any prints or posters of it, have you? I'd love one if you ever do them.

  5. I love your painting Donna - it has been pouring with rain here (UK East coast) all afternoon and your beautiful and cheery artwork was like a rainbow suddenly appearing (which always makes me happy).
    The birds are also singing - even in the rain - and I just fed a little soggy Robin who was looking in the window waiting for food.
    Thanks for your visit and lovely comments/message yesterday.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and some nice weather.. Gill xx

  6. What a beautiful painting of 'A little town in Mexico' Donna, and a perfect quote to go with it.
    I can relate so much to it after travelling the globe for many years.
    Our weather is atrocious for summer. Five consecutive days of cold, wet rain with the occasional fog thrown in!
    Have a great weekend and lets hope that the sun shines for us both ;D

  7. Oh, I'd like to live there, so bright and sunshine! Not a signs of rain we've been getting here in Finland :D

  8. Oh I could easily live in this colorful place-LOVE it!!!

  9. You found a wonderful quote that is so true.

    Amazing colours in this beautiful artwork. All looks so warm and sunny. Summer seems to have passed us by on the NE UK coast we have had mostly rain, cold and dull days for quite a while.

    Enjoy your weekend

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Your painting is so colourful and so full of wonderful imaginative buildings. I love the blue window on the right and the green door at the bottom and so much else. I could look at it for ages.

  11. Absolutely magical painting! It has all the vibrancy I associate with Mexican art. Beautiful job.

  12. A beautiful vibrant painting, it looks awesome.

  13. Beautiful! So very San Miguel. There is nowhere in the world quite like it. And the quote, of course, is perfect.

    Love, Edye

  14. This is bright and colorful and exotic. I love the feel of far away. Beautiful piece Hugs-Erika

  15. it is just perfect, the colours make me feel very happy

    Happy PPF

    much love...

  16. I do L♥ve that quote AND your precious little town in Mexico dear Donna!
    4 ft x 4 ft WOWEE too!
    It is impossible to feel sad when the birdies are singing isn't it.
    Sending sunny smiles your way.

  17. Colour rich and full of character...Love it so much! Great quote too!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful art spirit!

    Hugs Giggles

  18. Your paintings always warm my heart, and inspire my Muse, Donna! This one is so exquisite.

  19. It's not surprising that you struggled o leave such a vibrant place. Can't wait to see what beauty you find in your new surroundings :D XXX

  20. OOhhh this is wonderful. So bright and bold but soft and inviting at the same time. Have a very nice Sunday.

  21. How I love your colorful paintings! :)

  22. Your painting is gorgeous Donna - I have always loved the colors you used. Mexico was a good place for you and right up your alley when it comes to painting and color.
    Well now it is Sunday - I spent 3 hours on the beach this morning looking for Shark's teeth. This is going to be my new fetish -- collecting Shark's teeth! But it will be good for me to get me up and out of the house and walking.
    Keep posting those paintings!!
