It was market day no. 3 today! I somehow didn’t take any pictures of our stand and all the plants and greens we had. Tulsi and I were too busy dancing to the live music, feeding the duck, chasing around a wee pug dog-dog riding around on the back of his owner’s bike, AND making art — Tulsi made her very first drawing (on our chalkboard sign) and her first painting at the wonderful community art tent — a friend of mine has been showing up in random neighborhoods around Taos with a tent and paper and paints simply for ANYONE to make a painting. Is that just brilliantly beautiful, or what??? It reminded me of times when I was in Nepal and India and shared paper and pencils with the many kids who gathered around me while drawing — I wish I could do something like THIS, there! I know ‘they’ would love it. Tulsi and I picked out one of our best Cherokee Purple tomato plants as a small thank you for the spontaneous opportunity to paint.

She had SO much fun. She is such a good communicator — she pointed at each color she wanted and where she wanted to paint. The girl has spunk and no inhibitions when it comes to making art. Hmm…I think Mama is going to be learning a lot…

More on the farmer’s market and our building project soon…It’s been a super full and muddy four weeks!
