Two Saturdays ago, the Art Ladies visited the Taos Farmer's Market with the mission to purchase items for our still lifes, which we later set up at the Hacienda del Sol courtyards to paint. It was interesting to see what the others purchased and even more fun to see their set ups. My stash consisted of these flowers, two eggplants and a beautiful bunch of green onions, some of which made it into this still life. Ha! I bet you thought they were leaves of some sort. The black and white dotted table covering is my scarf, and the container for the flowers is a sturdy coffee mug I purchased for my husband. Even more fun to see was that all of our veggie purchases made it into the next morning's breakfast, prepared by Chef Gerd. All in all, it was a glorious day.
