From Rodeo Wagon to Albuquerque Cafe (photos)

I visited Descanso Gardens in a suburb of Los Angeles, California, a few times when I lived in the area.  I did not have a decent camera at the time so this photo is not the greatest, but it is very usable for reference for a painting I am working on right now.    I rather like this little Rodeo wagon !    

Below is a reference photo I took in Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico.   If anyone recognizes this scene and the name of the cafe please let me know.  Things may have changed a bit since I took this photo about 10 years ago.    

I believe it was yours truly who did not hold the camera correctly so we have sort of a lean to the window.   It was winter when I took this photo, as you have probably guessed from the poinsettas in the window.   I may change them to geraniums.   I have barely begun work on this painting.   

I am also working on other new works; just moving a little slow where my painting is concerned.   

Mahalo for visiting today !
