Hump Day... Santa Fe

I did a workshop on drawing faces this morning...

Then one on using Tombow markers - and other water-based markers- with a water brush. The effect is like water colors with a lovely blend. The coolest thing was using the clear Sakura Glaze pen as a resist!

We went on small group field trips - some to Museum Hill and others to Canyon RoadCanyon Road is a mile and a half of incredible art galleries. I wandered it... in hot sun... with Vivian. 

Kinetic sculptures, chairs made from rocks and very interesting shadows. A bit of Star Wars graffiti. 

For dinner, we went to The Shed (I love the sign) near the Plaza. Cold red raspberry soup and a vegetable quesadilla... The soup was passed around the table with moans and sighs of delight. It was so delicious. 

Once again, I am beyond exhausted, but I had a wonderful day; drew pictures, met more incredible people; and laughed so hard during dinner, I almost wet my pants. :-). Another perfect day. 

Here's a page from my journal showing what I could remember of a cool earring I would love to have... Day of the Dead meets steam punk. 


  1. Sounds like a great time. I LOVE the Shed. Isn't Santa Fe a feast for the eyes! Go to the Flea Market on I25 going north by the Opera House on Saturday. Fabulous!

  2. i love your definition of a perfect day "I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants!"
    I'm glad you're having such a great time!

  3. So much fun to read your experience and the pictures are beautiful not to mention the gorgeous journal art. Thank you for virtually taking me along.

  4. Love it! Not only is your artwork fantastic, but you have a real flair for writing! I'm really enjoying your travels! :D

  5. Oh, Wish I was there! As I was enjoying the fantastic photos you shared, the idea popped into my head that I could "join in with you " by having a go drawing from some of the own take in a "fake"! LOL! Really, need to use my own photos from my week at Albuquerque in June!
    Have a great rest of the week!

  6. Its been fun having you all travel along with me. And please DO pretend you're here and draw from the pictures. That's a great idea. :-)
