"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

SIGNING OFF FOR NOW


I'm signing off for an undetermined amount of time from my blog and creating, sadly I have spent the last 9 days in the hospital with my husband who has had a re-occurrence of Cancer in the worst way.  It has been a trying and difficult time and I'm afraid the road ahead will be even more trying.  We are fighters and we are no strangers, either of us, to this terrible cancer epidemic - but we both beat it before and damned if we won't do it again.

We welcome and appreciate all your prayers, concerns and love.

oh Dear SSQ-this breaks my heart...just breaks my heart. If you need anything...anything at all...just pick up the phone. To talk, to cry, to vent...to just be held in a space of love and friendship. I am sending you both all of my thoughts and prayers. xxx Soraya

I cannot tell you my reaction - your statement took my breath away. You can do this. in 2000 I had ovarian cancer, stage 3. They told me I was terminal. I didn't believe them. Don't believe what they say S. Sending love and white light for the journey. I would be honoured if you would keep in touch. You have my email. xoDonna

Damned if you won't again... That's the spirit! I've traveled this route with my family and it's hard as you know only too well but a fighting spirit like yours makes all the difference. Thinking positive thoughts and wishing you strength and courage to beat this thing. xox

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