Santa Fe, New Mexico is one of my favorite destinations to visit. The endless array of galleries, restaurants plus it is a shopper's paradise in the Southwest. I was there for a gallery show and it was the last day so was out visiting the Railroad District. As I was walking through a small mall area I spotted a spunky Terrier waiting for treats from his owner. I had to stop and introduce myself to the owner and asked to pet this charming dog. I was immediately introduced to Nutmeg and he won my heart with his charming ways. A few weeks later I received two CD's with non stop photos of Nutmeg along with a request for a painting. This was a fun painting and I enjoyed the loose brushwork and even painting her wild red collar. Shopping in Santa Fe made for, "A Painting Day".
