Santa Fe Plaza | “Hello Redhead…”


#196/365 Paintings

In Santa Fe, one of my favorite things to do is yak with people on the Plaza. As I stepped into Starbucks the other day, a Native American man sat next to a musician. He was in leathers, feathers… the whole thing. He said, “Hey redhead, I like your freckles.” I nodded and said, “Where’s your horse?” He motioned down the street. The guy next to him laughed. “You ain’t got no horse, you barely got charm.” He offered him a cigarette. Old friends, it seemed.

So I gave him a horse in this painting. He liked freckles after all!
