"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

CROSS Pollination

Well, my box of Oak Barrel pieces is a little smaller and has slowly been Resurrected! 
Here are the latest of my endeavors in the junk pile.
  Brass braised flower I made in the first welding class I took 
Old nails & old coca cola sign
 This one is from the Leaf Springs of a truck.... and remember those railroad numbers I found!

Did you notice .... I love Rust, Crosses & Hearts!

SZQ - love the title cross pollination - the stash of crosses certainly has grown - and lovely use of found and collected materials - but what will you do with them? B
