Sue and I went to Taos with Gene. He had physical therapy. He dropped us at the plaza and we sketched on Bent Street while enjoying a latté and a snack. Such a gorgeous day. This is in the travel multi-media sketchbook with a Prismacolor pen and watercolors.
We had lunch at Michael's Kitchen and drove back by way of Questa and Red River. I wanted to show Sue where we painted for the paint out. She had hoped to make it for that. We started at Sheeps Crossing.
Sheeps Crossing is a beautiful overlook over the Rio Grande in the Wild Rivers area. It was sunny when we started, then the clouds and wind with a sprinkle blew over and back to sunny. Gene napped while we sketched/painted.
We stopped in Red River and had a drink with Barbara and husband, Lou's (Bag Blog's) cousin. Enjoyable out on the deck at the Bull O' the Woods. We hoped to go in the Lost Love Saloon at the Texas Red Steakhouse but it was overflowing.
Sue left on Saturday flying back to Michigan from Santa Fe. All safe and sound at home.
It was our annual visit and so much fun. We always have fun and jump start our painting. We met Sue and Wally at a workshop in Montana in 1995 I think. We have painted and visited either in Texas, New Mexico or Michigan almost every year since. Wally and Gene got along great while Sue and I painted. He passed away a few years ago. We have great memories to share.
The annual visit is a very good thing. It is very quiet here now. I'm about caught up on rest so got in some sketches for the Hunt. (previous post)
And the saga continues....
