RANCHOS de TAOS: my friends walk with me in spirit

a short walk around the San Francisco de Asis church...a big circle... two graces plaza gallery opening of the collaborative show in my last post that included my work took place this weekend in june, and that's one of the businesses on one end of the walk-around, and there are some special spots no longer used on the other end. 

long time loved space of mine. many memories. the el cortez theater and martinez hall were across the street. a friend's studio. 

{the weekend included some rare alone time for me in taos, and the honor of some of my friends coming to the opening: old friends david and duane hopper & bob watkins from and during the last 40+ years; dear art friend renee howell from 5 years of sas colby summer workshops together at the mabel dodge luhan house; new friends holly sievers and robert cafazzo, gallery owners; and unmet until that weekend blog friend caterina giglio.}


  1. Thank you for this! Wonderful feeling to see this.

  2. A way cool way to go on a walk... and to music too.. you are so clever and creative.

  3. Thanks for bringing us along.

  4. Dear Nancy: rancho de taos; st francisco de assisi. Great pans and music of this calming earthen architecture. Very sculptural. Feeling a spirit inside as I noticed a ROD go across the screen! Pretty magical!

  5. how did I miss this? I saw it on FB, but for some reason did not realize it was a post....
    oh well... so very much to do I guess...
    no one shows off the place... with such an eye of love as you do... xx

  6. Neva, that was a great way to show off a special lace...through your loving eyes and with such rousing musical accompaniment. Enjoyed!

  7. Well, I meant to comment here too, and thought I really had. The window with the touch of blue is what I really love, but then all the windows are lovely in their age and memories. The buff clay colors are also beautiful. I have worked with clay that color and it is wonderful. And the flowers on the table with the light pouring through that window... I think that says so much. Thank you for sharing this journey.

  8. Hi Nancy, so long I have not been here, sorry. Now I just popped in to say hello!
    Love your Buddha work!
