Watercolor of the day ~ San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

This fanciful watercolor depicts a view of San Miguel de Allende, a vibrant and architecturally rich city in the central highlands of Mexico. The composition is loosely based on a photograph provided by my friend and fellow artist Maria, who grew up a few hours away and was kind enough to share her images of this wonderfully colorful place. Inspired by my own travels in Mexico, I’ve brought plenty of bright hues and fluid shapes to the party and had a lot of fun doing it.

Wouldn’t you love to be there right now? ¡Sí, vamos amigos!

Watercolor of the day ~ Cannery Row House

Cannery Row House ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

Not long ago on a trip to Monterey on the northern California coast, I came upon this small historic shack in the area called Cannery Row, which John Steinbeck made famous in his classic novel. I decided to move the little house for this watercolor, situating it in a spacious autumnal setting with a bright optimistic sky and a color palette inspired by Van Gogh.

I wonder if anyone is home…

Watercolor of the day ~ Stones of Lore

Stones of Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

Not long ago during a summer sojourn in London, I took a day trip to the mythic site of Stonehenge, the silent circle of great gray sentinels that stands watch just a couple of hours — and thousands of years — outside of the city. It was more wondrous, more moving, than I’d ever imagined. An ancient ritual dance preserved mid-step in stone on the green rolling hills.

This painting is a simple song of that place, a poem of monoliths still ablaze with the spirits of those who set them here.
