"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

HOLY MOTHER OF STORMS!!

We were headed out the door last night for our nightly walk and this was at the front door the HOLY MOTHER OF STORMS.   Looks like I'm gonna be cleaning up after this massive wall of dust tomorrow.  Our homes aren't built for high winds and this dust storm hit at almost 70 mph.

SZQ - that was one massive dirty storm - hope you managed to get inside and seal the place off - looks like the dust was just going to be everywhere. Hope you, your husband and the dogs were all OK. Go well. B

Wow, Soozie, you made the news! 50 miles wide and 10,000 feet in the air! I can't even imagine such a dust storm. How do you breathe? and how do you dig out from such a mess or does it all just blow away?
Praying for calm and a little rain for you!
