I love Mexico and Mexican culture. One of the things I love most is the Mexican’s use of colour.
They love bright colours, and use them liberally in decorating their houses.
In Xalapa, Veracruz, the vibrant colours of the houses bring to life even the poorest neighbourhoods. Bright oranges, sunshine yellow, cobalt blues, turquoise, pea greens- even the dull standard block homes built for government workers are transformed by each owner’s sense of colours.
These dazzling displays of unabashed, definitely not shy pastels, warm my eyes, and inspire my artist’s soul.
