Currently working on four new originals for Santa Fe at the end of this month. Two elaborate Dolorosa (Lady of Sorrows) retablos and two vintage-style "Visit Mexico" travel poster paintings...of course in calavera style. Pics to be posted soon.
I'm thinking that lower-priced items for this market will be my strategy. For summer market most of my paintings, nichos & retablos were larger and ranged in the $300 to $500 range. But this time $100-$200 will be more appropriate. Maybe. Never done this market before. I know it won't bring in the 30,000+ crowds that summer market did, but it will bring in the Christmas crowd.
Also just took a bunch of mirrors that were left over from Dia de Los Muertos over to the Corbett Center where part of the huge Mariachi Conference will be held this weekend. I don't really know that anything will sell since most people are attending to of course...listen to music! Not to buy art. Pero quien sabe. Can't hurt and it's free. Thanks for asking Priscilla!
It's really windy and dusty today. Extreme weather. One of the perks of desert living. I wouldn't have it any other way!
