Artarazzi challenge #28

Artarazzi has digital art challenges every week.

Here is the original photo:

Here is my entry: New Mexico Dreaming

The colors in the original photo reminded me of the many photos I have from New Mexico. I added some scenes from San Augustin an almost ghost town in north eastern New Mexico. I used images of a crumbling old ruin of a house, a church, and a cemetery stone from 1888. I also have superimposed a scene from Chaco canyon. The woman's face is from a collage I did years ago. I Can't remember her name now.

Inside of the weathered book.  I dribbled some blue paint on it before the project.

Painted paper towels that have been hanging out in the weather since February.  

Altered book project

On February 20th I put out some books and old magazines to destruct in the weather.  They hung on a little tree sculpture in front of my house through snow storms and ice.  Through rain and sun they stayed put.  I took them down on May 2 but I am just now getting around to posting them.

The nurse at the hospital set up a place so that Miles could hold Ty for a photo.  He was so sweet.
