Museum of Contemporary Native Arts - Sketch



When we were in Santa Fe I went into town one morning with the intention to sketch the cathedral.  When I got there the sun was coming up behind the cathedral and the front was in shadow.  When I turned around to see what the sun was shining on I was greeted with this view of the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts.  Seeing how I am absolutely mad about adobe architecture, I think it was a stroke of great luck that the sun made me turn around that day.  This building is absolutely gorgeous!  I love the portal, the vigas, the curved walls, the balcony and towers, and the enclosed patio gardens.  And this is just one example of the amazing architecture downtown.  Santa Fe truly is one of my favorite places to visit and I already can't wait to go back.
