A Little More of New Mexico

Wherever does the time go? I just realized I’ve been home for ten days but have not continued the story of my trip to New Mexico. I’m here to rectify that error now.

We went on a Studio Tour in Galisteo one day – it’s an annual event in a very small town where the streets are still dirt roads. We saw many different kinds of art, and I’d like to share some examples of them with you.

Where we started:

One of the artists was Judy Tuwaletstiwa, who used a glass powder to create her very unique works:

Other things we saw:

I thought I took more pictures of the artwork than I’m finding here, but it was a fun way to spend the day. We ended it in Lamy, where we had some much-needed liquid refreshments.

On another day, we visited Las Vegas, New Mexico, where much of the Netflix series “Longmire” was filmed. The door to the sheriff’s office:

The park across the street:

The Plaza Hotel, where we had lunch at the Range Cafe:

Street scenes that caught my eye:

On my very last day with my friend, we stayed at home and relaxed in her backyard.

Looking forward to my next visit!

    My husband was such a ‘Longmire’ fan and was disappointed it was not renewed. He enjoyed seeing that door. ‘Thank you, Carol’ from my husband!

    I love New Mexico, it’s on my short list of places I could retire to. I loved the piece of art, looked like a painting, of the fence.

    What in interesting collection of art! And the eating house looks like a place I’d like to hang for the afternoon…..or week. 🙂 I remember visiting an artist colony halfway up a mountain when we were there. A very eclectic group! Enjoy your pictures. Happy you had a good time. xoxox
