Copper Poppy



So this weekend I ran out of fresh canvases so resorted to a postcard. I haven't done these in quite some time and I guess I didn't realize how vital they are to my creative process.

MIDDLE OF NOWHERE - NEW MEXICO


This little old guy was really something. He announced to the few locals in the little market that he was out to bag some rabbits, and had anyone seen some good ones. Yikes.

I just love these back roads of New Mexico.

I always try imagine what these folks do for a living, how do they make enough money to pay the bills. Out here in the middle of nowhere, I doubt they have huge living expenses, what with no Starbucks, fast food, Hobby Lobby. Well, you guessed it, my imagination always comes up dry. I guess the guy behind the wheel relies on rabbits for dinner.

And then of course I start thinking about our culture, our society, our consumption. Our need for new jeans and the latest style boots.

What is really important in life? Rabbits or jeans? Perception is everything I guess.

BEHIND THE RED DOOR

I always love looking at the images of doors that other people post at their blogs. So here is my contribution. The colors jumped out at me in the cool autumn air.......and imagine the almost overwhelming smell of apples on trees, lying the in the grass........that was the scene. Fall is my favorite time of year. My children were born in the Fall, I once lived in New England where the Fall season is spectacular and I guess, well, I just love the Fall. What else is there to say????? I'm such a visual person that words often escape me.

OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE


I just love her face. Looking at our lives with love and compassion. I so much need a warm mother figure in my life.

I took this photo Sunday afternoon in Cuba, New Mexico.
