A garlic strand and some dried flowers have been painted behind the ristras. Next I begin constructing the bins and base of the fruit stand.
In my mind I could hear the sound of our truck tires on the crunchy gravel as I worked on the parking area in front of the stand. It’s funny how those delightful memories crop up while painting some of our favorite places.
And talk about memories…… My mouth was watering as I painted the fresh peaches and apples. YUMMM!
Indian Corn is another item we always seem to pick up when we stop at Sopyn’s.
Dried gourds fill out the area by the Indian Corn. Hollyhocks, Matilija Poppies and Coreopsis jumble together happily in the foreground. The blossom colors are blocked in first.
After completing the leaves on the flowers the details of the Chili Ristras are added. The final touch is to paint the brightly colored flags dancing in the breeze. Hope this painting sparks many warm remembrances of stopping at Sopyn’s On the Way to Taos for those who see it. Thank you for following my blog, I appreciate each and every one of my readers. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
