I just returned from five days in San Miguel de Allende. What a beautiful and fun city! The trip was fabulous and one of the highlights was visiting Anado McLauchlin. He’s a mosaic and assemblage artist and has an amazing compound in the country outside San Miguel that includes his home, studio, and two galleries. I just loved him and was so impressed by all the work he and his partner have done to the place over the last sixteen years. There is art everywhere you look. Here are a few of the photos.

Myself and Anado in front of one of the many installations on the property.

The composting toilet.

The arch leading down to the Chapel of Jimmy Ray,

which is a gallery named after Anado’s father.

    Marsha! Awesome mosaic photos! Can’t wait to get back to see ideas sprouting from you.
    We are having a great time the whales were totally amazing. Only problem is some people have gotten Montezuma’s revenge. Thankfully I’m not one of them. See you next week.
