For my beloved non spanish speaking friends
Villa Acequia
simply means house on the irrigation ditch

This Villa was constructed in the 1860s and has been used as a winery, courthouse, private residence, dance hall, art gallery and as the social hub of the village of Corrales.  The Corrales Village is unique in its traditions, way of life, history and agricultural roots.

On June 8, plein air artists were invited to paint at eight different garden locations in conjunction with the garden tour.  The entire event was very successful.  It is such a joy to paint outdoors in beautiful weather and on this day, it was only in the eighties while the previous few days had been hotter.  I was so grateful!

I will post a second plein air painting from this event soon.
