"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 Won ~ I Won ~ it's like Christmas morning

 Uplifting and Inspiring Designs by Valentina!

I was so excited to discover that I won this beautiful phone cover this morning from Valentina
She has the most beautiful intricate art designs and has definitely made her art work for her.  I admire all those artists that can take their craft and turn it into multiples.   She takes this Zentangle drawing to such a wonderful level with all the over the top colors and designs.  Then of course you can also get it on a duvet cover, a pillow, a wall mural etc.   Check Valentina out at Feeling Inspired, I think you'll agree her work is GorGeous!   Hmmm, wonder how I can mass produce those shovels of mine!

Thanks Valentina!

SZQ - well done on the win; and the work is so intricate. And where would you-we be just looking at a heap of shovels someone else has created???? Hope the phone cover makes for colourful conversations. Go well. B

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