Spanish Market


Spanish Market is held in Santa Fe, New Mexico every year.  It's an amazing event that attracts an estimated 70,000 visitors every year.  I usually don't go because it's too crowded but my dad and his companion, Mary, invited me this year.  We went early in the morning so there wasn't much of a crowd and it was still cool.

My first posting about Spanish Market can be found HERE.

Here are more photos from the day.
a closeup of the piece above
I love the vivid colors this artist uses.
The following two watercolors are done by one of my favorite local artist.  Her name is Michelle Ferran.  I love her use of color.

They are both behind glass - I tried to get a shot without much glare.

This is an amazing wood carving.

Do you notice anything "funny" in the photo above?  I couldn't ask the gentleman in the red shirt to move while I snapped the photo......
These ladies were dancing around the corner from the Plaza.
I would love to have a pair of boots like this!
I hope you enjoyed this post.  Perhaps it makes you want to put the Spanish Market on your Bucket List?

Peace,
Kay

Don't need to add it to my bucket list . . . been there, done that. But I would love to go again.
I love Santa Fe, I love Taos, I love Albuquerque, I love so much about New Mexico. And I LOVE those boots.
The colors of the southwest are hard to beat. hmmmmm...... I feel the need for a trip out west.
