Lizard Pot

This Micaceous lizard pot is the product of artist Bea Duran. I love the lizard on the rim of the pot. This type of clay is great for cookware. We have one and once you make beans in one you'll never go back to regular cook wear again.

"Photographing Sioux Delegates"

You'll want to click on this photo for a better look. This painting by artist Jim Yellowhawk had drawn a big audience while I was trying to get a good photo of it. I didn't mean to capture that Turquoise hat in the shot.

Jemez Pottery

This was one of the first booths that we stopped at when we went to the Indian Market on Saturday. These were hand built by artist Phyllis Tosa. My favorite was the one with the Hummingbird on it.

Lost in the Crowd.

This is where I will be again today. Lost in the crowd of Indian Market. Yesterday we saw so much wonderful art (coming soon). We going back today to hear R.Carlos Nakai who is the "world's premier performer of the Native American flute." I have seen him many times when I lived in Arizona and I am so happy that he is here in Santa Fe. Wishing everyone a peaceful Sunday.

They're Everywhere.

I love these sculptures that move with the wind as you have all seen on my blog before. They can be found here next to the Loretto chapel and even in Sedona Arizona at a gallery that I believe is where they originated. Check out that sky!

Take me to the River.

Even if it is small, it's still ours. A few weekends ago while walking into town I noticed the little bit of water in the Santa Fe river.

Star Shutters

I like the contrast of the white on the Adobe walls. Not something we see here on most homes.

Working on the Weekend.

There is a group of artist who gather next to the Loretto Chapel. They usually draw a good crowd but will probably get more next weekend since it's Indian Market. Hope this week goes fast.

Standing on another Corner.

While walking into town the other day and waiting for the light to change I noticed this cloud heading the the same direction I was headed. This is the corner of Alameda and Santa Fe Trail. Enjoy your Sunday.

Standing on the Corner

This is downtown on the corner of San Fransisco street and Don Gaspar. The cloud in the backround looked so my larger in person.

Blue Sky

I've said it once and I will say it again. There is nothing like the Blue skies of New Mexico. Not to mention some of the biggest clouds I have ever seen. Sometimes you just wish you could ride on one.

Beauty in Clay

This is my last Spanish Market photos. This artist had some beautiful pieces made from clay. If I had the money this would be sitting in my home now.

Your Sunday Alter

Can you imagine this alter in your home. I think it would be perfect if you have a small chapel on your property. I can only imagine how long it took the artist to make this.

Planters for the Dead.

Not that you would want to put dead plants in here but these Day of the Dead pots would be perfect with some beautiful flowers at your front door.

Saint and Angels

When at the Spanish Market I kept staring at this piece thinking about the love and patience that the artist must have possessed to create such a lovely piece. Have a great weekend everyone!

This VW light is the work of mixed media artist Gilbert Candelaria. I would love to have a full size drivable version of this bug.

Retablos and Cross

There were different displays by all the different artists at Spanish Market. Some of the more simple ones were some of my favorites.

Monday, August 3, 2009


This piece from the Spanish market was very thought provoking. People were very moved by it. As for me I am praying, that it will be a short week. Have a good one everyone.

There were many beautiful saints at the Spanish Market. The ones by artist Marie Romero Cash were some of my favorite because of their beautiful color.
