In September, my husband surprised me with a four day trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico for our thirty-fifth anniversary. It marked the beginning of a long hiatus from Comfort Cottage in order to work on some projects I've been putting off. I have no shortage of things to share with you but I decided to start with an art journal page I created to commemorate our trip.
The trip was truly a delightful adventure. We stayed in a four star hotel in the heart of Santa Fe and walked or took the bus to dozens of fabulous museums, galleries and restaurants. It was very different that our usual adventures which usually find us sleeping under the stars and listening to the coyotes howl.
The house in the photo is on Delgado St., just off of Canyon Rd. It is one of my favorites. I created the journal page using numerous layers in Photoshop CC. This is the original photo:
We had the most incredible roast beef sandwiches for lunch at this cafe on Canyon Road.

Inside of the Michael Smith gallery there was a feast for the eyes. Wounaan Indian Baskets and Pueblo and Navaho weavings from 1865-1950 are on display.
There are so many lovely places to wander.

As I get caught up, I'll be sharing more of this wonderful place of art and inspiration with you, as well as some of those projects I referred to. Thank you so much for your visit. We'll meet again soon.
Until next time,
