Sketches for Hunt 372, Taos and Photos

Bag Blog, Lou, and her husband, Toby, came for a visit.  That is so special.  They needed a vacation in the mountains and we needed to see them so it worked out very well.

Before they got here I sketched in the regular sketchbook with the Micron 05 pen.

For Scavenger Hunt 372 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1358731
Number 1, from my purse - travel sketchbook and Pilot Pen
Number 2, used for cooking - salt, pepper and two hot peppers

Lou and Toby arrived on Friday and we relaxed and had dinner in Angel Fire.

We went to Taos on Saturday night to see Suzy Bogguss  http://suzybogguss.com/home.html at the Taos Mesa Brewing  http://www.taosmesabrewing.com/.  It was a lot of fun.

The brewery has a nice outdoor area with plenty of room.  They failed to mention that we should bring our own chairs!  There was some seating on the patio which is covered, but noise from the kitchen and pool hall so not easy to hear the performers.

We opted for a wall.  Gene went to the car and brought blankets to sit on and the one chair that was in the car.

You can see the people in front of us came prepared.

Suzy and her band put on a great show featuring her new album which is a tribute to Merle Haggard http://merlehaggard.com/.

It was very cool, got down to about 50 degrees F.  Gene and I used the blankets over us instead of sitting on them.  Lou and Toby found a couple of chairs and danced a bit to stay warm!

More in the next post with some plein air pastel painting.
