"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

Valentine's Weekend Tradition

Every Valentine's Day it just so happens that the  
Tubac Art Festival
  always falls before or after V'Day and every year my "Love" and I always go to this beautiful place.  
Of course I make it easy on my "love" because I always find some special piece of art 

Like THIS

 and THIS

and THIS

to add to my very diminished wall space, garden area or patio and my "Love" always says "I'll get it for you for V'Day".  It always works out perfectly that I always get what I want!   Plus the annual Gem and Mineral Show also happens that same weekend, so it's a wonderful treasure hunting 2-3 days.

We are headed there tomorrow to stay the weekend I'm so excited. It's a little early, but


Happy Valentine's Day All!
