No specific reason for the strange location, except that there was an empty fountain in the park and B and I thought it would be cool to take photos in it. I wore this scarf with pretty much everything while I was in New Mexico. It looks like an abstract painting of a southwestern sunset to me, so it seemed fitting.
It still blows me away to see fields of red and green chiles growing all over the place, so I went wild with the photos.
I’ve been going on and on about the New Mexico landscape in the past few posts, so I thought I would share my favorite landscape by Peter Hurd, who captures the Hondo Valley so perfectly.
This particular piece is at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, which B and I have visited a few times and really has quite an impressive selection. Also cool: you can pass by this very spot and still see the original house and trees that you see here in the painting.

the southwestern inspired scarf is so perfect- and chiles on the landscape are so surreal! enjoying your pictures of your trip
Those leggings with the booties – yes yes! So perfect.
Also, I love the neat little fact you worked in about how you can still see the original house and trees in the painting. Very cool, indeed.
Also also, I did love that dog you posted photos of on Sunday! He's such a beautiful dog and you got great photos of him. Man, I want a dog so badly!
