SISTERS AT THE PLAYA 11.5 X 15.75 in

    "Sisters at the Playa “ 29 x 40 cm.  watercolor        

Donna Dickson


The subject matter around Banderas bay is an endless inspiration; the Pacific Ocean with all the colourful boats afloat; the life of the beach; the rugged mountains with their misty jungle vegetation spilling down toward the sea; the play of surf and sand; the sun falling into the sea serving up the most gorgeous sunsets imaginable. 

Puerto Vallarta has blossomed into one of Mexico's prime  destinations while retaining a real authentic Mexican charm. The hotels are well run, clean, comfortable and affordable. The same can be said of the many excellent restaurants. There is lots to do and see in Puerto Vallarta, and the crime rate is so low as to be essentially non-existent - to top it off, the people are genuinely friendly and helpful!
