Remember I told you that master carver Isabro Ortega was going to make window pieces for our Anna Karin Gallery windows (see previous post Anna Karin Gallery: Warming the Exterior)? Well, he delivered them! Anna and I were thrilled. Enough so that we set our alarms early the following day so we could go down to Espanola and buy paint before we needed to open the gallery for the day. And we set right to work painting them. That’s two coats front and back, even with the primer built in—a lot of surface there folks! But we were happy to do it. We put on music and began.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with old adobe houses, this is a lovely treatment that many of them share. Next time you’re in Santa Fe or driving the High Road, take a look around and you’ll be surprised by how many you’ll see. We think they’re going to make a big difference to the outside of the gallery.
Coming next: Isabro installs the window pieces! Stay tuned because you won’t want to miss that.
Love to you all,
