Short and Sweet trip to Santa Fe

A few photos from around the premises of our stay.

Ben, looking handsome and working his magic at his show!

Three of his paintings hanging in the Gallery.

Ben and Ben waiting to be served as they reminisced about the many artistic ideas that naturally flow through their minds!

A painting by Vachagan Narazyan, a new favorite artist of mine! We will be meeting him when he shows at the Meyer Munson Gallery in June.

Ben had a show at the Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe this weekend. I flew out to meet him on Friday while my generous sister Gina watched the babies. I didn't even worry about them like I thought I would, I just worried that my sister would be alright, Then Danny and Jan watched them most of Saturday.
We stayed at The Bishops Lodge...highly recommended!, it was beautiful, and the pudding french toast was a dream breakfast as we ate out on the deck overlooking the gardens.
The show was a success, many collectors came and were so impressed by Ben! his next show is in June!

This place looks beautiful. And your husband is very talented, as you are with your photography. Thanks so much for your response on the mini apples. I actually found them in an article right after I inquired about them. Too cute not to make. Thanks!!!!!!

You should be in charge of making brochures for Bishop's Lodge - I know nothing about it other than what I see in your photos and I want to go!
Ben's paintings look so beautiful and striking on that black wall too!
