Day in Santa Fe

I just got back from a mini vacation with my husband to the Santa Fe region of New Mexico.

The view from our balcony was stunning and my favourite part of the trip was watching the light change on the mountains:

We did some exploring in the town when we weren’t reading by the pool and enjoyed some delicious coffee and tea at the Station Cafe:

My favourite piece from the trip:

White Mountain Wilderness

Finally, the large oil landscape is done (for the most part… I often add touches here and there for a while after completing a painting). It depicts the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico and the view from where I got married in May of this year.
