This is a commission I did for Chris Beck the owner of The Chile Shop on Water Street just off the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. The shop has been a Santa Fe fixture for over 30 years and has many delightful chile inspired gifts inside. As always, building are no more than the people who are inside them. A visiting family is enjoying New Mexico folk art and chile ristras. A cowboy waits for his wife while she shops keeping company with his bulldog "Pinto." The lady to the right is happy with her Chile Shop purchase as her chihuahua "Chica" follows behind.
