463 Sketches and New Mexico Photos

We are now in Albuquerque after our quiet time in Chimayo.  I sketched in Chimayo and here in Albuquerque for Scavenger Hunt 463.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1411223

Number 1, the Chimayo cloth under the flower pot

Number 2, hinge
Number 3, guilty pleasure - wine
Number 4, handle
Number 5, lamp shade
Number 6, fingernail
Number 7, something I use daily - iPad
Number 8, electrical - coffee maker
Number 9, something for measuring
Number 10, number something - 2.50 glasses, I was wishing I had a six shooter!

Number 11 relaxing - I used markers, Micron 03 and watercolor to finally make this acceptable to post.

Number 12, towel, Number 13, soap
Number 14, animal
Number 15, dryer lint in trash can
Number 16, tool - power sprayers for water hose

It is always so relaxing in Chimayo with a minimum of communication with the "outside" world.  We had our birthday dinner and visited old haunts.

 Spanish Peaks near Walsenburg, Colorado.

Our room at Rancho de Chimayo

Afternoon view from our deck.

Rain and hail in the patio area.

A bit of highway flooded out on the way to Española.
Inside La Paragua, a favorite restaurant in Española.  I thought they were getting ready to make tortillas on the wood stove, but they were just warming the room after the cool rain.

This sign in Espaõla makes us smile and we wave.

A territoral style house, I like to see in New Mexico.  Similar is style to the Rancho de Chimayo.

This was north of Taos, around Questa.  Beautiful skies!!

Three in Santa Fe on the way to Albuquerque.  The buildings have to have a pueblo/territorial flair to them by ordinance.

Sun clouds near Chimayo.
Clouds in Albuquerque along with some Art in Public Places.

Very close encounter.

The balloon that almost landed in the yard in Albuquerque as it went by.
