Bus Stop in a Little Town in Mexico

This is a scene from a sweet little town in Mexico and is  my newest watercolor.  The little plaza is a familiar and welcome place for these ladies who take the bus on most of their working days.  The huge trees provide shade and it’s a good place to start the day. 

As they sit and chat and compare notes, a young girl walks by with a youthful stride.  She revels in her youthful clothes of blue jeans and backpack.  Time changes everything as the days and years go by.
