New Mexico I painted from photos of tropical flowers. Sounds a bit
absurd, but for the first several days that we were in NM, it was cold,
cloudy, and rainy. When the sun came out on Thursday, everyone spilled
from the studio of the Espanola fabric arts center--a very cool space
filled with giant looms--where the workshop was held into the weedy
driveway and yard: it was hard to paint indoors after that.
