The native vendors on the Plaza in Santa Fe Nm, gather every morning to select numbers for rights to use a slot out fron for sales.. This colorful silversmith awaits his turn. The painting is done from a photo I took on location. This was intended to be only a preliminary sketch, taking about 20 minutes. The resulting painting is conforming what I believe to me my strong suit, the first strokes of paint are my most authentic, conveying something more raw and pure.
