Day 10 & 11  Saturday and Sunday

Farmers Market.
Art Demo.
Cowgirl Bar-B-Que.
Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.

My last weekend in Santa Fe....my work-cation soon to come to an end...I didn't post yesterday because I was having too much fun with my friend Ronna who visited from Albuquerque.

Saturday morning I had a lovely walk to the Farmers Market, which even in the winter is wonderful..there was everything from soaps, lotions, lavender to vege's meats, bakery etc- and the Farmers Market also has some wonderful 'permanent shops' which consist of chocolate, art, garden and TEA - as in Artful Tea (.com) - check out her amazing selections of tea - you can order online!

While I was in the Railyard District I took a few minutes to stop in some of the very contemporary galleries.  I really enjoyed the LewAllen Galleries - and I highly recommend when in santa fe...to stop there...some of my favorite artists that are represented there are Forrest Moses, Margaret Fitzgerald and Sammy Peters...

These two images were taken by permission in the LewAllen Galleries.

While in the Railyard District I saw this 'portable art gallery' and thought it was the coolest thing...only in Santa Fe!

In the afternoon I did a demo at Artisan on my art process and the importance of layers in your artwork.   I had a wonderful crowd of 20+ artists that were interested in this Michigan Artists work.  It was fun sharing my techniques with them - they were a great audience!   And in life, I firmly believe, to always give, give and give of your talents...
After my demo, Ronna and I proceeded to the famous 'COWGIRL BARBEQUE' - where we enjoyed some fab New Mexico beers and a great meal, oh and a Dixieland Jazz Band was entertaining us...I can see why this is  a favorite hangout for locals and visitors.  Even met a very famous artist at the bar....thanks to Ronna who will talk to everyone!!!!

My Sunday was a nice, relaxing day with a trip to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum....
Some of Georgia's art supplies...

a nice original of Georgia's.

A very pleasant weekend...thanks Ronna for coming up to visit!
