Some Ghost Ranch pictures

I'm continuing on a new portrait today, so to waste time when I should be working (I'm also making New Mexico traditional anise christmas cookies while I should be painting.), I'll take a few minutes to upload some pictures of a sunnier, warmer...oh so warmer time this past summer at Ghost Ranch.

This is an amazing bench. It's carved out of one big piece of sandstone. She the layers of color running through it? Click on it to enlarge for the money shot.
Just pretty, no?

From the top of the Mesa by Tumbleweeds cottage.

You can't see it so well here but this adobe bench is embedded with tiles and bits of mirror that make up gleaming suns, an here and there, the makers built in little dips or holes and these fill with water when it rains and the birds come and drink from the bench. So sweet!

This is a view through the gate of Ghost Host, looking out to Pedernal Mountain.

I don't know who this dude is but I like him. I always say hi when I walk by him.

Ok, must go work. Have a super day and I hope you have sun and heat wherever you are. And if you do, will you send me a ticket?
