Flooding (El Rancho New Mexico)

It’s was about two months before now that a storm came through that everyone had to get out and look at the raging water. When it rains big here it is a community event. I remember once a little old lady (older than me) drove up to the dip which is depicted in this piece and stopped. She thought a bit and decided to go for it. It would have been fine as it wasn’t too terribly deep but she stopped right in the middle. She was scared of all the water surrounding her car and froze. I was there and a few other onlookers. We knew that she was going to be ok as the water was subsiding and her car wasn’t moving. We called 911 and let them know and waited for someone to rescue her. Someone from the pueblo came and pulled her out. She was a lucky little old lady….

THE BALL COLLECTOR

This piece was done when I lived in Carpinteria, California.

It’s been in storage for several years, now it hangs in the studio.

Hot waxand resin are combined and melted to create the texture, carving into the wax once it is cool and creating a drawing.

It could beconsidered a drawing or a painting.
