"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

Junker Haven

It was a Junkers dream to stumble upon all these beauties in one place in Washington.  A rolling beautiful piece of property - all manicured except for the strategically placed junkers in the front yard with the lawn trimmed just up to these gorgeous old relics allowing for the wildflowers to grow around them.

I was in Arroyo Junker's Dream Land for sure!

SZQ - this would have to be one of my favourite posts - just so love the Junkers - every time you present these stately wrecks I just want one to do up and drive around in. Thanks for cheering Friday. Go well. B

BS - I'd love to have an awesome old junker too to drive around.... but only after I carved out a door or two!

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