Balloon Fiesta has started, and that means bright colors in blue skies.
A jaunt to Quebec last week to visit with family was a chance to escape and explore. In Montreal – great city to explore by walking - I climbed Mont Royal by following the trails designed by the great park designer Olmsted. I visited the contemporary art museum, where I discovered a helpful message scrawled on the mirror in the ladies’ room - Andy Warhol. A city unafraid of public art – almost every block has at least one statue. The weather was balmy and we ate every meal at an outdoor café. After a few days in the city, we drove up to the national park a few hours north, Mont Tremblant. It was off season - the mountain is known for its many ski resorts, and the autumn colors had only just begun to appear. We hiked to waterfalls and under canopies of tall trees. The towns had patios and we ate our dinners under starry skies.
Upon arrival back home in Santa Fe, I saw autumn had burst into full color in the Southwest. Citron-yellow apples from my tree, lemony chamisas are filling the arroyos and golden aspens are appearing on the mountains. Songbirds are migrating – I see goldfinches among the hummingbirds. Time to drain the swamp cooler and light the pinon fires. And in celebration of the colorful season, I am placing all of my Autumnal Haikus series on sale – 25% off during the entire month of October!
I brought home Maple cream cookies (which I shared with the James Joyce reading group) and a vision of bold color, which I am putting to use while working in the Railyard. I set up an easel and cut and paste while I am at the Railyard Artisans Market displaying my prints and posters. Here is a glimpse of the work on process.
If you are in town, I’d live to see you! If not, just drop me a line.
Love and Peace,
