Good morning. The San Marcos Café is a small breakfast and lunch only café that looks like it was once a home. It is located on highway 14 just a few miles south of Santa Fe, NM. The highway is a scenic highway that goes from Santa Fe to Albuquerque and further south following an ancient route where turquoise was collected and even mined. The café is unique and serves a menu of home made dishes that are absolutely delicious. This painting, like many of my paintings, starts out as a drawing from a few selected pictures I have taken and recomposed until I get the composition and visual feel that I want to display. There are five drawing posts in this message starting with the very first beginning of the drawing. I don't know how many posts it will take to unveil this painting. Nor, do I know how long it will take me to do it. Such is the adventure of creating something from nothing. Just love it.

Good evening. Got some more work in. Just adding shapes and shading. Feel like I am just walking it down to the finish line, so to speak. Here are the posts.
