Solar-Powered New Mexico Artist’s Studio

What a stunning view!

Gotta love a good wood burning stove.

Fun and funky open kitchen with hanging storage for pots and pans.

A peek at the door and that fun tree.


Plenty of windows to let in natural light while working.

Now that looks like a cozy little spot.

Love the slate blue wall in the bedroom. Very relaxing.

Spacious bathroom with more natural light.

Covered porch outside — great to get out of the sun!

What a sweet archway leading into the property!

    I love a lot of houses that are built in New Mexico, but I don’t think I could really bring my self to live in it’s state because of all the nukes that have been stock piled there…! Then you have all those nuts running around claiming they saw UFO’s flying around all the time…. Other than that a very beautiful state….!

      Haha 🙂 My mom grew up there moving around in small towns. She prefers the North East! I’ve only been once, and it’s too barren for me (in the area we were, I know there are mountains!). But, it does look beautiful depending on where you are.

        March 29, 2017, 1:32 pm

        I wasn’t kidding about the nukes..! There was a released government report a few years back that had specified the exact amount of nukes stored there , and sorry to say the mountains you were looking for, well that is exactly where they house all those nukes… Actually there was even a documentary on the history, or discovery channel which also showed a great big tunnel which led to caverns where they actually stored the stuff sorry to say…! It is a shame as New Mexico does have a lot of beautiful land all around those mountains….
