"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
I ~ RESURRECT ~ STEEL

Garden Stakes and JACK

Have I ever told you I LOVE ~ LOVE ~  LOVE my plasma cutter.  This may be the best piece of equipment I've ever purchased.  I can cut metal like butter baby.  When you can cut metal like
butter baby
butter baby
butter baby  (sorry I had to do that ~ I had a brain freeze)

It opens up a whole new world.  It did for me.   You should try it sometime!!  It's been hard to gear up to go outside and create (113 today), but finally this week I created something new.

GARDEN STAKES
Every beautiful garden needs a garden stake & Jack
