chocise and luna counties

1959 we moved from Lubbock Texas, an Apache hunting ground, to
Cochise County Arizona, home to the Athabascan culture for 5000 years
i learned to say Chiricahua and then to climb their sacred mountains
3 years later we moved to Luna County New Mexico, these are the Florida Mountains viewed from the tail end of the Mimbres River, the Mimbres culture, located north of here, began 3000 years earlier and they made amazing pottery. 1971, my senior year of high school, we moved to Alvin, halfway between Houston and the Gulf of Mexico, far away, in every sense, from the dry isolated expansive desert. 
July 2014, 5 days in Santa Fe ^ my Apache Spirit was reborn


 artwork created in anticipation of returning to new mexico 44 years after leaving. growing up, the only art i saw was in tiny 1 room history museums and roadside curio shops and was almost always created by the Apache, Mimbres, or Navajo people ^ my love and attachment to their culture and artwork had been repressed and I now went into a full blown rediscovery mode ^ waking up that buried self
