Carved Door


One the artistic talents that wish I had some time to learn is wood carving. There are many New Mexico artists that are wood carvers. Sometimes you come across entire families of artist and it is interesting to hear about the past generations of carvers. I am not sure of the history of this door but it sure is one I would love to have in my home.

une couleur qui flashe, une porte originale

A typical blue, I would say, for that area. I like carved wood too. This is a pattern I've seen on Indian jewelry.

You and me both!!!

That's a good example of fixing up an entry way! Such artistic skill is beyond me, so I just enjoy what others do.

Re your comment on Ocala: You have to be careful at the flea market 'cause someone might "jeep" you! :-)

I love the blue doors. Hmmm, I wonder what they'd think at my apt complex if I painted mine ;)
A 3 day weekend sounds wonderful!

Oh, I forgot to say- there are some wonderful carvings in the visual art center @ school right now- you've probably already seen them. I want one!

Nice one!

Cool door! I'm not so sure I would have painted it that blue color but it's still a cool door.

I love that turquoise color! And the carving is great.

LOVE!!!

It would make a colorful addition to the Monday Meme Doorways. A true New Mexico shade of blue...very nice!

Jarart said...

The carving as well as the color make this door a real piece of artwork!

That truly is a fabulous colour Randy, if I didn't have my red door..that's the other colour I'd really like.

VP said...

I love that color, it is a very nice door!

Magpie said...

It is very interesting when a family hands down a craft or skill from generation to generation. Love that blue!

Lots of character in that wonderful door. Makes me want to go knock on it and complement the owner!

This carving looks so New Mexican to my eyes. Nice work!

Hey... Blue doors are normally a Versailles speciality! :-))
This one is very nice, like a turquoise Navajo piece of jewellery.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Nicely done Randy.

Umā said...

There's a color you don't find in New England and I loved that about New Mexico, so much color!

Regina K said...

I would also love to have that door.

Michaele said...

That can't be easy - but I guess that's why it is so cool.

Michelle said...

Beautiful in both color and style.

Jack said...

It just screams "Santa Fe!"

Halcyon said...

Both the carving and the color are fantastic!

Beautiful contrast between the blue door and the earth-coloured walls.
Great capture, Randy.

Does the stepped border have a special name? Love it and the color.
