The adobe home is in Old Mesilla, NM. The details were from different eras at a time when homes were passed down to the next generation. The Lentil is at a lower level changed when doors had a different size standard. When fire brick was available they added it to the surface. The spindly post, quiet different then the decorative posts used in Santa Fe, were anchored with a cast iron “T”. This is very different from the extruded iron on the door glass. This home also sported a banco. Two years after doing this home all the character was altered once again and the history erased. I feel fortunate to have done this etching with all its history.
These etchings have been documentaries of our Abodes and their history lies on its construction. It is also my way of including us people in the landscape.
Another beautiful piece by Miss Samaniego! She responded quickly and shipped the etching right away. This was the second work we purchased from her, the first being in person. She was friendly and happy to talk us through any piece of art she had on display and make recommendations based on what we liked. Highly recommend for both her artwork and her friendly/helpful interactions.
