Photography of New Mexico Landscape













Our second day on the train, I snapped this shot first entering New Mexico.













This photograph was taken at Ghost Ranch,New Mexico where Georgia O'Keefe use to live and paint. This was a reflection off of a window of the setting sun against the beautiful landscape.

We primitive tent camped at Ghost Ranch in order to get some pictures of the setting and rising sun. This is photograph of the sun rising. It was very peaceful and quite. During the middle of the night you could hear  the coyotes howling off in the distance.











On our way home from Ghost Ranch, we stop to visit Blanca Plaza, which are natural white rock formations.

New Mexico Exploration

In addition to visiting family in New Mexico, one of my goals was to visit the studio of Artist Bill Skrips in Cerrillos, New Mexico. Along the way to Bill's studio we came across an origami garden. All the large sculptural pieces were made out of steel. My young one loves origami, so this stop was a necessity!




After about an hour in the hot sun, we were on our way once more to Cerrillos.







We finally made it to Bill's Studio and it was pretty awesome. Awesome from the point of view of another assemblage artist. Bill chatted with me for sometime about his work. I loved being there first hand to see and touch such incredible work! The rawness and yet simplicity of his work was inspiring.




This is one of my favorites that he had lying around.



Incredible natural light coming into the studio.



Bill has also been working with block printing. Checkout his website for more of his fascinating work at:

Wire Art Dolls

















I had a request for a wire art doll and I made several since I was on a creative roll. I try to take advantage of those times.

My on-line art class Altered Art Doll Mania At Artful Gathering will be coming to an end soon and I will then be drawing names for a random giveaway to my students.

Wire Art Doll Dunce

This is a wire doll I created back in 2009. The upper torso and head were made from polymer clay  and the arms are coiled wire. I love working with wire and my biggest inspiration that drew me to this medium is Mixed Media Jewelry Artist Richard Salley. His wire work in jewelry is totally amazing!!
