Canyon Road Paint Out XXIII

What to choose next? I like how this artist's palette almost echos what the painting looks like.

Canyon Road Paint Out XXI

Painting in the shadows. It's all about the light I guess. Just like photography but not as easy.

I have a work event this evening so please excuse my absence if I don't visit tonight.

Another painting left all alone.  My photo did not do it justice, it really was quite beautiful.

Canyon Road Paint Out XIX

Just one of the many sculptures sitting in front of one the galleries. What do you think of it?

Canyon Road Paint Out XVIII

More live models. I'm sure they were cheap labor but getting them there probably wasn't.

Canyon Road Paint Out XVII

A few of you know that I am fond of squirrels. I could not resist taking a shot of this artist sculpting this little squirrel with an acorn. The piece is actually going to be added to a much larger piece.
Happy Friday everyone!

Canyon Road Paint Out XVI

I thought I would capture another form of artwork while on the paint out. The building that the two women are walking in front of is a restaurant, Geronimo. No I haven't been, it's a little out of my price range.

Canyon Road Paint Out XV

Another painting left unattended. The house in this painting is one of the most photographed and painted house in Santa Fe especially when the garden is in full bloom.

This artist was either taking a break or just letting the painting dry.

Canyon Road Paint Out XI

Easels were all over this group of galleries. Good thing you can't see me, I was wear the same vest as the woman on the right. I volunteered for traffic control and I had just finished my shift when I caught this shot.

Canyon Road Paint Out X

One of my favorite artists is Nacona Burgess (standing here in front of his painting). He is Comanche from Lawton Oklahoma but has lived in many place including Santa Fe. He is the great-great gandson of Chief Quanah Parker. You can read more about him and see more of his work here.
