The Blacksmith Shop by Jack Providenti

"The Blacksmith Shop"

8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas
By Jack Providenti

A quick plein air sketch of the blacksmith shop in Magdelena, New Mexico. This is my last painting in New Mexico before leaving for St Petersburg Florida where I will be living permanently. I was in my studio putting in the finishing touches when I thought I heard the sound of the kids playing up here at Mojave Academy.....not so unusual except that the school has been closed for over three months! So I figured it was the music that I forgot to turn off  over in the house.....or was it? Maybe I've been alone in the mountains too long!
