Farming with acequias in northern NM has been the way of feeding the fields and gardens. Acequias are water ways dug out and channeled from mountain rivers. This is how a high mountain desert area can farm, even on low rain fall years! Hence the angel of farming and ditches. The base is sugar pine and the figure is cedar 14"w x 16"d x 20"h.
Here is a double door design for bathroom on the carson mesa of Taos. My vision starting at the top, a water drop ripple into a water falling landing in a bigger body of water. Commissioned by the Yven family in May 2009 and completed in June 2009 with a budget of $1400.00. Made of sugar pine and 31"x80" inches.

This house was started in 1996 and completed in 1999 and continues to be approved. The budget $46,000 and most of the materials were collected. Rocks for the foundation were harvested from the ski valley road and near by canyon. The clay for the walls came from the digging of the foundation and a root cellar. All the earth moving was done by hand with pikes, shovels, buckets and wheel barrels. Two colors of finish grade clay found, were applied to finish the walls in and out. Wood for the second story was milled from Ponderosa pine burned in the 1996 lama forest fire.
