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….

This piece just came out the way it did all on it’s own. I don’t know what it’s all about. I like that it is a mystery even to me.
The piece is the second one I did in this suite. I am still finding what to do to make the piece sing. It is fun to expirement with a new medium.
This is the first one I did in the suite. For some reason the first is alway the most raw.
I like the feel of this piece, like they are going into a place no one has been.
