Santa Fe!

February 22, 2013


We’re here in Santa Fe on the last leg of our journey, to take the mark making workshop with Paula Roland. The differences between the three places we have visited are quite striking – they could be three different countries, not just three different states.

Santa Fe is high desert country, and it is also having a drought at the moment. The landscape is
arid, bare, dotted with juniper. Such grass as is there is bleached like straw. At night you can hear the coyotes howl.

The rolling hills give way to mountains capped with drifts of snow.

This landscape has captivated artists for generations. The shifting patterns of light on the mountains, the extraordinary skies, and the sense of intimacy and space could be the stuff of endless interpretation. I wish I had brought my long lens!

And the culture and architecture are completely different, too, and fit so well into the landscape you couldn’t imagine them elsewhere.

    No. perhaps not. Lots of cowboy boots and fringes here, too. And we can hear the coyotes at night.

    Hi Anthea, loving the images of chillies and steer skulls, somehow I don’t think Australian Customs would let them in!
    cheers, Steph
