What makes a painting is the full experience of the moment

Red door 2016 by Cristi Fer, acrylic on canvas board 11" x 14" The San Miguel bright light is always a point of inspiration for me. The full experience of San Miguel is not only visual but the sounds that accompany the visual perception: Right now I can here the birds in the tree across the street , traffic, a kaleidoscope of music from the passing cars, people talking, dogs barking and earlier the calls of roosters. All are part of the painting experience and the painting!

San Miguel de Allende 2016 San Miguel de Allende is one of the must visited town of Mexico! Tacked in between gentle rolling hills, adorned by charming Colonial architecture, narrow cobble stone streets, cheerful parades all year around, mariachi in the park, fantastic Mexican food, and well known hospitality, it is an ideal place all year around to run away from hit or snow blizzards. It is so much to do and enjoy here! We (Cristi Fer Art) are fortunate to have established our art studio and gallery in this enchanted town. We love to share this charm with you and make it even more by adding a painting workshop to your trip. We work with all levels of painting experience from none to well experience artists. The schedule, painting in the mornings and enjoying the afternoons. Have an ice creme cone in the park while watching the vendors, and kids, or stroll the streets, find your favorite restaurant, go to a concert or play. When traveling alone or with friends, taking a pai

Last Summer in San Miguel de Allende painting at Cristi Fer Art Studio

In the last week the weather got much cooler. About 80 degrees F and a bit cool in the morning and evenings. And some torrential rain at night. As I was thinking of how different this May 2016 in comparison with last year and working on the computer, I run across some last summer workshop photos. Here is one of them. I sure had a blast those 2 weeks of sketching and painting! If you are a beginner painter looking to gain confidence and learn new techniques, or an experienced artist looking to jump start their creative flow, consider spending one or 2 week of painting in San Miguel de Allende at our Crsti Fer Art Studio and Gallery. Summer is a great time to visit San Miguel.  Our Summers are not as hot as AZ or NM. The hit is dry so even 80 F don't feel terribly hot. If you are an art teacher or a teacher enjoying Summer break, looking for a relaxing painting holiday, this is the workshop for you! You can choose from attending 5 Paintings in 5 Days Art Adventure or Pai

Sisters painting workshop week at Cristi Fer Art Studio

Just completed a week workshop with two sisters who's travels brought them to Mexico. They wanted to fulfill their dream of painting together and learning new techniques. One a beginner the other an intermediate painter. This workshop was not on our schedule but we love to be flexible as much as possible. So we designed a workshop just for them and their painting goals. The results speak for themselves! What a delight to work with such talented and charming ladies! If you too plan ti travel to San Miguel de Allende solo or with family and friends, and you have specific painting goals, contact us in advance and we will do our best to accommodate your travel dates and painting goals. After a lifetime of painting, art degrees and teaching adults for about 27 years, the 2 of us Fernando Gonzalez and myself Cristiana Marinescu can teach any level of experience.
