Ice Tea with Limon

This is an acrylic painting.  The first of a series I plan to do of beverages 
The glass is characteristic of the hand blown glasses made here in
Mexico.  The Limon is a small wonderful lime that we use in almost
everything from cerviche to tacos to cold drinks.  It is a part of daily
life and the fridge is never without them.  The beverage series is
so that I can try and stay cool as it is over 40 C or 100 F every day.
Summer is hard we await rain...if it comes?!?  The last
rain that we have had was last November ..that is November 2012.

Mosaic Glass Gazing Ball

A little different for me.  But, my favorite form is the sphere.  This is made 
from a recycled bowling ball, a broken glass tempered windshield and acrylic 
paints.  There are not many bowling balls in La Paz.  We only have one 
bowling alley and it is only a year old.  This ball was found in a Secunda 
(a second hand market).  From there it was sanded, painted, glued, grouted 
and sealed.  The stand is also from the Secunda.  It was time consuming but 
great fun.  I have already began another one...stay tuned!
