New painting of a Mexican door

You notice several tour companies advertising workshops in Mexico and even in San Miguel de Allende for $1500 and up and this cost does not include materials.

We do not rent workshop space! You paint in our personal bright and spacious studio. Extra Bonus! We provide all the acrylic paints, brushes, palette knifes, etc. NOTE: Same intermediate and adva
