To the south of Las Cruces, NM, sits the historic town of Mesilla. A beautiful old church claims the center of town, along with a shaded plaza, and the narrow streets are filled with boutiques, restaurants, and people taking their time strolling along.
It was a delight to find Preston Contemporary Art Center and to discover Susan Puelz and her wonderful landscape paintings done in watercolor and pastel.
