This is the weekend of the Spanish Market at the Heard Museum and I stopped by yesterday to see what beautiful things might entice me. There are over 75 artists who display and sell their artwork with crafts ranging from furniture to painting to jewelry and much, much more. I saw a painting I loved and some beautiful work with thin sheets of metal shaped and pounded into pictures but, I resisted the purchase. I felt concern that the artists might not do so well in these hard economic times, but I was pleased to see that there were a few people who were purchasing both large and small artworks.
This picture is of the strolling Mariachi’s who provided entertainment apropos to the event.
The best part of the day happened when I ran into good friends that I hadn't seen in months. We ended up spending the afternoon together and catching up. Nothing beats an afternoon with good friends.
