"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

Easter Design - Not just for Eggs

How about these for Easter Decorations!  
I finished the other barrel, added a few little "stars" and was totally entranced by the shadows that these cutouts produce.  Junk is beautiful!
 I see shadows a lot these days, in fact when I'm on walks or driving I always look for the shadows, sometime they are more beautiful then the object itself. 
I hope you all had a lovely Easter - I miss the days when I used to get a bunny or baby chick for Easter.   

How come I don't get one of those anymore?  

Here's a few more shadows to share with you.  



This is the Easter Bunny of Lochness!!!

Happy Easter a little late, Soozie! You have the hands of a surgeon, wonderful creations! Next year I would like to see Easter Bonnets!

Takin' the back road from Greer to Morenci was gorgeous. This was waiting at the end.
