Blue Monday: Bienvenidos!

Blue Monday is hosted weekly by Smiling Sally.
To see more offerings, or to participate yourself,
please head on over to her blog.

Not a lot of blue around here right now. But while M and I were having lunch at one of our favorite Mexican food places over the weekend, I managed to snap this shot of one of their wall paintings. Well, it has some bits of blue anyway, and a very pretty senorita, too.

(Click on photo to enlarge.)

Sorry the photo quality isn't the best. I was using the camera in my cell phone, and trying not to upset the dishes on other tables!

The restaurant is the El Paso in Springfield VA, and it has some extremely authentic (and really tasty) Tex-Mex offerings. Authentic, in that (as my hubby always says) the food is mostly red, brown and yellow, with hardly a green to be seen!


  1. I have seen a lot of Mexican restaurants with paintings on their walls. That painting is beautiful!...Christine

  2. The blue of the cloak is a lovely rich colour.

  3. A very pretty wall painting. Good choice for Blue Monday.
