Now we're waiting in a cafe, called the Double
Rainbow for a friend of a friend that has moved here from N.Y. She
is going to pose. I'm watching a tiny puppy sleeping on a table
outside the cafe. Spencer and I spread out on the table and I finish
a couple drawings while Spencer works on scraps the movie, no scraps
the book, then we go to a movie. Temptress Moon.
In the morning we shoot in front of a Gigantic red arrow in the middle of a parking
lot. We were just going to cruise on to Taos and Santa Fe, but lo
and behold, we see the arrow, and with Spencer's love of extremely
large misplaced and strange cultural paraphenalia, he has to shoot.
So the shoot... 2 models - 2 women. One from Brooklyn, the other
an artist. During the shoot our first snowfall, then hail. So cold
nipples and other extremities. We had an easy fast shoot and we are
on our way to Santa Fe.
Sante Fe, New Mexico
we met most of our
sante fe models at this spa
I've heard mixed reviews
of this place so I wanted to come check
it out for myself. It's really a fabulous spot. There is a
proliferation of shmaltzy, touristy, typically
overpriced shops and restaurants, but it is also
surrounded by incredibly beautiful mountains. I saw the most
colorful sunset here. There are some really great streets with
galleries and cafes of the earthy energetic sort that we love.
I found this very creative and funky place called the Cafe Oasis.
I loved their slogan, "For those who need magic to survive. Food
cooked with the highest love and sensitivity devoted to your body
terrific." They have a different theme in each of the rooms of
an adobe house decorated with mosaics and posters of mystics.
There is the entertainment room, the spiritual room, the romance
room, the smoking room, and the patio. I'm sitting on the floor,
shoes off, on pillows and cushions with a very low table in front
of me. Iam tired and relaxed, warm and full, but still we ordered
pumpkin pie. The next day, we drive to Taos.
