    Great composition and colors, Kerry!, I assume that the zarapes are from Saltillo, Mexico, aren't they?,
Regards,
Amalia

Hi Amalia,
As always, it's great hearing from you! Yes, the zarapes were imported from Mexico ... the dealer I bought them from here in town (northern California) didn't mention where, but I'll bet you're right!

Thanks for the nice comments, Amalia - much appreciated. The outstanding colors and patterns sure caught my eye. I added a hat from our little ranch for added visual interest - with the subdued color and curve contrasting with the serape's bold colors and strong diagonal lines.

This close-up scene was shot in late afternoon sunlight. I also tried a little later - early evening - but the low-angled sun cast shadows in the wrong places. Sometimes getting the right light takes experimenting :-) ...

Thanks again!
