Watercolor


This is a stunning watercolor painting of a sleepy little marketplace in Taxco, Mexico. Observe how Alicia Stonebreaker painted the background trees and foliage, the detailed and intricate scrollwork of the lanterns, light fixtures, and black fence railing. She painted the shawled and beautiful dark featured Seniorita with an angelic appearance. The dozing shop keeper guarding his boxed produce and the guitar strummer make up the balance of this great scene. In 1975, Alicia Stonebreaker and her husband, Judge John Connarn, vacationed in Taxco, Mexicio. Alicia painted several watercolors here in what many people consider to be the most picturesque area of Mexico. Taxco (pronounced Tahs'co), is located three to four hours drive from Mexico City. The town has been declared a national historical monument to preserve the colonial architecture and heritage. Taxco is noted for its silver mines and the streets are lined with 300 silversmith shops offering fine craftsmanship. Alicia once said to her son, “The people of Taxco are friendly and cheerful”.  Alicia loved to paint within Taxco’s narrow and hidden cobblestone streets, charming cafes, restaurants, and red-tiled roofs. Alicia completely caught the mood of this common and everyday market scene and the emotions of the local people.
