Final Day in Taos

Well, this was the final day in Taos. We spent the morning touring the galleries and museums in Taos before we packed up and started for Santa Fe. We arrived in Santa Fe and headed straight to Albert's studio.
The afternoon was filled with art talk and viewing his beautiful paintings. His studio is filled with pastel and oil paintings. As always seems to be the case, the actual paintings are stunning in person. He was so generous in letting us explore anywhere-pull out any painting-ask him any question. It was also nice to see how he approaches his studio work and how he sets up to do the painting.
I also was able to obtain a set of his Unison pastel-he had assembled them for artist to help them with the greens. Yeah!!!
That night we all met at the Guadalupe Cafe for our final dinner together and to say goodbye. We all exchanged addresses, phone numbers and emails so we can keep in touch and see how we are all progressing.
Tomorrow we head for home-I am sad that the week is over but so enthused about the trip and looking forward to doing some studio painting from all the photos I took on the trip. New Mexico is truly the "Land of Enchantment".
