The days of the free lunch may be over, but if you happened to be on Canyon Road this week, you may have been able to grab some free art. A sign at the entrance to Canyon Road was beckoning drivers to make the detour, asking passers-by to ‘Please take my art.’ Once the turn was taken, a vast array of colorful paintings could be seen.
The sign asked for a donation, but there was no artist tending the store, nor was there a place to deposit the donation. I guess anyone that took a painting that wanted to give a donation, could simply donate to a cause of their own choosing.
As I drove home (without a painting), the very thought of this short interlude made me smile. Only in Santa Fe.
