New Mexico Visitor

We’ve had great fun with a guest this week, the very unique Flat Yareli (a relative of Flat Stanley of children’s book fame). On Monday, she went plein air landscape painting with me. Yareli needed some warmer clothes that would let her paint. A pair of gloves without the finger tips lets a painter hold the brush. A down-vest keeps a painter warm while arms are flexible and unencumbered.

Charlestown is an historic neighborhood in historic Boston, Massachusetts. After Thanksgiving dinner, Eddy, Phil and I took Yareli for a stroll to Boston Harbor and Breed’s Hill, site of the Battle of Bunker Hill. Eddy just graduated from Boston Latin School – it was the very first public school in the USA and is nearly 400 years old. Many of the patriots that you hear about in revolutionary history went to this school; Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and Samuel Adams.

For our walk, I made a fab faux fur coat and earmuffs for Flat Yareli – its colder here than New Mexico. Just check out the photos. Flat Yareli will be making her way home soon.

    I remember seeing some of these sites from when I was there! Looks like fun.
