"If you hear a voice within you say, 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." --Vincent van Gogh

We took an unscheduled side trip to Taos, New Mexico. We were only there for a few hours, but what a great little town. I felt like I could spend a week there, sipping Mojitos and enjoying the sunshine. Here's a taste of what we saw:
The New Mexico Locust, or Black Locust tree - in full bloom and incredibly beautiful.
A doorway along a side street. Many doors are painted turquoise and emerald and it just sparkles against the adobe walls.
A mural on the main street through town.
St. Francis mission - one of the oldest in the country (we saw so much, I'm going to have to do some research to get my facts straight).
