Farming in New Mexico (Melrose) Grain Elevator

Farming isn’t easy, weather, pest,cost of equipment, and time.

Below is Randy Lesly, he is the manager at Melrose Grain & Elevator (Hardware & Farm Store). This is in Melrose, New Mexico. He is a very nice man who knows the history of the area. His first day at the elevator was 9/11. Thank You to Randy for the time you spent with me in April. MelroseNM#1

Study In Color (Abstract)

I just love the way gouache looks. Flat. I worked on the two pieces in the last few nights. I just let them come out of no where.  After seeing the artist Jukyja Dolly when being on search on the internet machine I was inspired. Check the bottom of this post to go to a youtube and of course look at images under her name. I thought I was finished with narrative but story telling is important. It hard to hold me to one voice. pinkislland_gouache_pap_12x9web Color Flow  Gouache on Paper  12×9colorflow_gouache_pap_12x9webColor Flow  Gouache on Paper  12×9

Salsali Private Museum (Dubai)

I would love to post photos of some of the art work but better not, don’t need to get into trouble. If you haven’t seen  Ramin Salsali’s Museum, part of his collection you must take a look. He has a great philosophy on collecting and sharing. Thank You Sir. Then come back to me and see what’s new. Cheers

HOUSE COAT – TO ROB

ROBE/HOUSE COAT.

A robe is a loose-fitting outer garment. A robe is distinguished from a cape or cloak by the fact that it usually has sleeves. The English word robe derives from Middle English robe (“garment”), borrowed from Old French robe (“booty, spoils”), itself taken from the Frankish word *rouba (“spoils, things stolen, clothes”), and is related to the word rob. FROM WIKIPEDIA

SO THIS IS WHY SO MANY HOUSE COATS ARE TAKEN FROM HOTELS!
