Stunning Santa Fe

I just returned very late last night from my eight days in Santa Fe. Part of the time was spent attending the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Conference, but most of the time was spent touring around New Mexico with a friend attending the conference. Since I am unpacking, doing laundry, buying groceries, going to the gym, re-acquainting myself with my cats and husband, catching up on email, downloading and resizing photos, and of course prepping for a class I'm teaching on Friday, and so on, I'm going to keep this post brief and mostly focused on the visual. Here are photos taken within the City of Santa Fe, some on our first day there, and some on our last. 

These old doors were photographed along Canyon Road, known as the Gallery District.

Art (mostly sculptures) outside the galleries on Canyon Road.

The following photos were taken on our last day, walking around the City. Who knew the doors and windows would be so beautiful?


The sky was bluer than blue on most days! 

I met this creature, which looked to be half hummingbird and half butterfly or moth.  I'm told it is a hummingbird moth. I wasn't quite able to capture a clear photo as the wings were moving so fast.

I hope you enjoyed this visual inspiration. More to come in the next few days.
