A few days ago, while in San Jose de Cabo, I happened upon the Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery. Maybe it was his joyous use of color, which definitely drew me in, but I found myself lingering.

There are multiple brands under this umbrella, but that is for another time. They showed me the collection and insisted it would fit me very well.
