I have made another sculpture out of old wood found in Abiquiu. This one is approximately 44 x 39 x 10 cm in size.I guess this will be the last pictures from Santa Fe before returning to Sweden. For the next visit I have bought a Pure Beaver hat made by O’Farrell here in town. A good hat is needed here in the sun… It is good for hiking, painting, etc…Coming out of darkness or entering into darkness…? To be prepared or not… In any case, I am extremely thankful for my time here and can’t wait to come back.

I guess my pilgrimage is coming to a close, only a few more days before the return to Arild, Sweden. In the meantime Abiquiu, NM, is quickly becoming a favorite…After a hike to the Rim Vista, with Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu Lake behind.At the Echo Amphitheater. Grand!And then the close ups…Skies over Abiquiu Lake.After sunset…
Well, the sun is shining over Pedernal, but not over my landscape painting skills. It sucks. I guess my heart is not in it… (it is not quite done yet, though)This is the row of Pocket Art pieces I have worked on during this trip.And these little pieces.The weather is good again and it is nice to be working outside!
He he, a friend said that last night, as I was contemplating my scruffy hands after a day of wood working, wondering if I am becoming soft… 🙂
Well, I am happy as a kid because I now have the tools I need in order to cut plywood and build my “canvasses”. Now I can work!Now I can make beautiful cuts and build stuff, like this:This is my new work table that I will have in my outdoor studio.While it has been cold and snowing (!), I have worked inside, putting some final touches onto my latest Pocket Art eyes.Also started on a tiny piece, only 4,6 x 5,4 cm.I am also working on a very typical New Mexico landscape view – the Pedernal. I will do more work on this…
I am quickly becoming a huge Abiquiu fan! This weekend I was invited to a private property right on Abiquiu Lake, on the western side, with expansive views towards Ghost Ranch. So amazingly beautiful!I found some time and inspiration to make some quick sketches. Maybe one of these days I will go out and paint the Northern New Mexico landscapes Plein Air. It will be hard to resist! But in the meantime I am working on a few new pieces:This is the first one, 20×15 cm, oil on plywood.
