Santa Fe Memories

Sunday, November 1, 2009

I'm thinking back to the highlights of my latest trip to Santa Fe and all the fun that we had! Not only did I get totally inspired by all the galleries and museums, but I enjoyed some other wonderful things . . . like the farmers market on saturday morning where "the girls" all picked up somethings to make dinner that evening at the condo - tomales, breads, apples (baked) and squash, cheese and wine - you could get it all right at the farmers market - along with the "touristy" purchase of mine - a small wreath of peppers! Spending time in the afternoons at our B & B "El Farlito" inn just putting our feet up and drinking tea and eating homemade biscotti and apricot/oatmeal cookies, catching up from a long day of exploring. Another thing we enjoyed was stopping at the "Kakura Chocolate House" to "sip" like tea one of their many flavored dark chocolates! Maybe I died and went to heaven but their theory is that dark chocolate is so good for you, that it should be "sipped" like tea! Just wonderful, I say! Also enjoyed dinner in the countryside at Jane and Al's beautiful home ( they are friends of johanna's). Jane has an amazing studio - because you know everyone who lives there are artists - overlooking the mountains - I don't think I would get much work done, probably more day dreaming in that studio! SO . . I think my new body of work is going to be definitely influenced by Santa Fe, I'm thinking of color blocks from inspirational photos that I took while there - of the sky, the sunset, the mountains, the chili peppers, the adobe!!! I can still see the beautiful colors embedded in my mind. I'll fly with that thought!!!!
