Jane Davenport is a hoot!

Jane showing how she excels at taking selfies or in this case, posing mid-stroke for a pic.

It is so wonderful to meet a person who is exactly as she appears in her online courses. Spending time with Jane Davenport in Mexico City was a dream come true and to watch her enjoy the schedule of activities we planned was a lot of fun.

Did I mention that she is a power shopper? She now has a cadre of colorful shirts to wear to remember our time together with 12 other artists who attended Viva Frida. She bought this beautiful coat to wear during our trip. www.kathievezzani.com


This stunning painting by Felipe Ferguson hangs in the lobby of the Red Tree House, our wonderful home for the week.

The staff and owners, Jorge Silva and Craig Hudson, made sure that all of our needs were met, including the opportunity to visit Felipe’s studio where we saw another painting of Frida which Jorge purchased the very next day!

Jane and Mandy in Felipe’s studio. Aren’t Mandy’s glasses cool? They are made from vinyl records!

Watching Jane paint in person is a fabulous opportunity to observe every stroke and to watch a painting transform, even while waiting for our dinner to arrive.


We spent time visiting Frida and Diego’s Casa Azul which was a dream come true for many of the artists. We also visited Dolores Olmeda’s hacienda now a museum.

Visiting Carlito Dalceggio’s studio was another treat after we stopped by El Moro for churros and chocolate. And a visit to the Pasteleria Ideal with enormous wedding cakes that you buy by the kilo.

Jane has more trips planned for London, Bali, Italy and Paris. Take it from me, traveling with Jane is a real treat. We plan to do it again in Oaxaca. Let me know if you are interested and I will keep your name on a contact list. Here are a few pictures during our last show ‘N tell with our wonderful group of artists.
