I have been drawing at Taco Jalisco's for one year this month.
This is the first drawing I did of "The Couple" December 2011.
and here they are again on November 2012.
We are now "talking friends" who have lunch at different tables together at Taco Jalisco's and have done for way more than a year. I learned not long ago from them that they used to watch me read there, now they watch me draw! They told me this week that they were honored to find themselves on the art quilt I made for the Jalisco Owners and which now proudly hangs on the wall in the restaurant.
They have asked to see my art journal drawings recently and I was happy to see their positive reactions to viewing them. (I showed them my travel art journal, they have yet to see my drawings of them other than the one on the art quilt).
In this painting I drew him first then decided to draw them both in the position I could see them sitting together. She is wearing a very pretty shawl she knit herself. I asked her about it and complimented her on it's beauty on their way out.
This is the drawing I made on November 1, 2012... It's my 1st Anniversary Drawing of starting Year Two of Taco Jalisco drawing/paintings!
This I did the same day I did the top drawings of the couple. I drew these gals before the couple came in. It was the first time I had seen my art quilt hung on the wall. I felt so happy that they wanted it there for all to see.
It's hanging sort of high on the wall, and The Couple told me that Carlos pointed out a small picture of them on the quilt. They had to stand on chairs to see it. I got a kick out of that and so did they!
Lunch was "on the house" this day.
They would NOT let me pay!
I'm linking these to Paint Party Friday. See other really good artists work via the link on my side bar.
And thank you all in advance for leaving your comments as it totally warms my heart to read them.
Thank you so much!!!!
