"ARROYO"

A dry channel through which water flows intermittently and irregularly. Kind of like this blog.

My art is an infectious need for me, sometimes a burden but most often a blessing.

This blog is about me and my obsessions, my loves, my need to create and my need of JUNK. I'm addicted to thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets and all roads leading off the beaten track to discover that perfect piece of junk. I recycle old license plates, old shovels, wheelbarrows, saw blades and anything else that's funky using my hand held plasma cutter. I love working with steel, sculpting, photography, watercolor painting, stained glass, and turning everyday utilitarian objects into art. Junked cars ~ I will always veer off the path to search out the beautiful wrecked Arroyo JunKers throughout Arizona, New Mexico and anywhere else the road may lead. When I'm not searching for those JunKers

We ALL Can Get Along... Here's Proof!

I took this photo in Bisbee, Arizona a great old mining town.  These three characters roam the town and are a real landmark there.  They'll stroll all thru town on each other's back with no problems what so ever.  At one point the little mouse looked like he was asleep on the cats neck. 






This photo was taken while we were eating lunch at Wildflowers.  This little dog was so at ease on the back of this motorcycle.  His master went in to get lunch and he laid in his basket never budging for at least 35 mins.  I couldn't believe he never tried to get his goggles off.
