Life, Gallery and Studio Musings, 18
Whew! We made it to Arizona. The last day of driving was long and snowy. We drove from Santa Fe into Scottsdale. Leo is a road warrior. He rode across the country with very few complaints. One the way to Santa Fe, I had to visit a Taos church. It is about 200 years old, plus or minus. Georgia O’Keefe depicted it as an abstraction.
I hoped LewAllen and LewAllen Jewelry was open on Sunday. But, no. Their store being closed, saved me some money. I can’t resist Laura’s handmade charms. I did find a hat shop for my friend Tony.
Plus, some public art:
This is how the roads looked in Northern Arizona three days ago:
On Monday, we visited Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale. We wore masks and gloves. It was quiet on the streets. Sadly, I saw lots of empty store fronts. I think Covid has been hard on Scottsdale retail businesses. Xanadu is one business that I always visit. They have a nice selection of wall art, glass, and sculpture.
Leo couldn’t help himself. He asked to have his picture taken next to this puppy. Who is cuter?
I am thinking that I should create large buildings when I return that are thin enough that light would glow through the porcelain.
Take good care, C2.
