Santa Fe base camp established!

the Georgia O'Keefe museum is well worth the visit - and you may be surprised by her urban, non-floral art from back when she was first starting out. I bought two prints of that period and love them.


With a few notable exceptions, I'm really not a big fan of paintings.

ah, well then. carry on. I'm sure you'll find TONS of other artists doing things like drums and rattles and stuff, too.

I do appreciate a good turkey made from a hand tracing. Did O'Keefe do at of those?


good comeback

some of o"keefe's stuff i like. but, i guess i'm like edge, not many paintings speak to me. i studied art while in uni, i much preferred printmaking, multi-media work.

i did a series of prints based on tacky wallpaper. good stuff.

I just don't get the modern materials used in art. the whole Dada movement to me was fucking stupid. OK, I get the point, they hated war so much that they were mocking society by creating art that was absolutely nothing...but now kids take clippings from magazines and put together a collage and call that art. It's just not my taste, I guess.

I much prefer paint and I really want to get into sculpture someday. Speaking of turkey tracing, at the moment, I'm experimenting with oil pastels on glass.


btw - the rattles and drums thing wasn't meant as a slap in the face. quite literally Santa Fe is a very large artist community and nearly everyone there focuses on that sort of stuff. I honestly thought Loran would be in heaven.

I appreciate many forms of art, but am not limited to one type or another. If I see something I like, I don't care if it is a painting, sculpture, or installation. I particularly like utilitarian pieces like furniture, drums & rattles, etc where form follows function; making something as basic as a chair look new and fresh is exciting, but if its not comfortable it's a fail.

I have always loved the SW style, but have no experience building furniture in it, although I know enough about it now that I could. There was just no market for it in NH. Here in the SW I am soaking in all the influences to see how beadwork, found materials, jewelry techniques, etc can be incorporated into my work. Of particular interest to me is the spirituality that connects the process with the product, which gives each piece a life of its own. If you read any of my Etsy descriptions you can see this.

I go out alone each night and do ceremony under the stars which helps me with this connection. Loving it!

PS, the wife just brought up O'Keefe country, so I found nearby trails to get lost on while she visits the home/museum. Meaghan drove down last night from Denver so she can keep her mom company and we have her car to get around should we need it. I am now at the Toyota dealership while they investigate the constant overheating problem; not sure how long they need to keep it. Fingers crossed.

I'm the same way, too, though I definitely lean toward paintings and sculptures. I have three installments in that project I sent off for the grant a couple of months ago...definitely my first venture into that arena.

I think the thing that I'm struggling with a little bit here early in my career is this idea that art needs to be conceptual. I understand it, but I don't buy it. To me, art needs to be emotionally charged. That doesn't mean it causes someone to faint, but I believe both the artist and viewer should be emotionally attached to the piece in some way. For me, if there's no attachment, what's the point?

Looking forward to seeing how you develop your furniture from this. Consider this a residency?

Good luck with the truck. That sucks. Fingers are crossed it's not because the trailer is too heavy.

Don't know what it is that defines my generation but I'm good as long as it doesn't involve being emo as fuck, like my younger brothers.
Speaking of emo.
What is emo, besides emo?
And as a side question, is there still emos out there? They seamed to have died back around here.

Theyve been replaced by flannel wearing hipsters

The verdict is in: radiator flush & scrub hoses to remove block sealer that they added in Cincy, radiator fan clutch repair, fix AC leak & recharge, and replace thermostat. $907.

This is actually great news! Should have my wheels back at the end of the day! Free to explore Santa Fe! Wooooooo!

Went to Abiquiu today where O'Keefe lived, museum, blah blah; we skipped all that. The wife wanted to visit a lavender farm with a brochure that made it look like Provence, but it was closer to a big herb garden. From there we went to Ojo Caliente Mineral Baths, and while Karol & Meg did the mud bath and hot springs, I took the pups for a high desert hike to an old pueblo site. Amazing scenery, no one else around, and 15th century pottery shards everywhere.

Tomorrow is a big farmers market and kicking around old town Santa Fe, and then I get to choose the Fathers Day activity for Sunday. Looks like Meg and I will get to climb the pink granite of Pecos Canyon. Schweet!

Monday we drive through NW NM towards Shiprock and camp near Durango, then Tuesday we hit Mesa Verde. Meg drives home to Denver on Wed and we continue on to Bryce, Grand Staircase, and Zion.
