Always traumatic to sell your "most beautiful" piece in its' first day out!

OK..set up on the #santafe Plaza waiting for the #ABQ #balloonfiesta crowds! Always #fun

Excited to be showing my Rooster #ABQ #balloonfiesta watercolor @ my art table on #santafe Plaza!

And they're ALL chain smoking cigarettes right behind me #yuk #allergic

I was a bit late at the #santafe Plaza...BUT I got my #balloonfiesta piece DONE!!!!

Update.....this is SO nerve-wracking!!!!

Good morning!...charming kitchen flowers.

Fall flowers in full bloom.......

The world's smallest ristras...top row/4"long

David's artistic dinner...rice, chard, halibut

David's artistic dinner..lightly floured and spiced pan-fried halibut, rice w/sautéed chopped veggies, mini-mtn of chard.

This fresh, seasonal Ristra reminds me just what "nubile" means!

........Oh,.....the food!....

Yum! Smells good! Private dinner party after the opening.....#santafe #backstreetbistro
