Best abstract for your San Miguel home

What stands out about San Miguel de Allende? History and tradition is embedded in the architecture, pilling walls, old doors, and the faces of the people. The bright, crisp light give the narrow streets and extra brilliance and sharp shadows. The soul of Mexican painter Fernando Gonzalez  is touched by this experiences and the inner experience transpires in the new abstract mixed media paintings. Local and international collectors are loving his new art ! Stop by Cristi Fer Art Gallery, admire the new work, meet the painter, and take home one of Fernando Gonzalez, innovative paintings.
