NEW ZEN COWBOY
List of new ideas and first few stories
IT SEEMS TO BE A "GO" with the mural idea for the Mine Shaft Tavern...and so far this is the initial laout.
I plan on putting in as many town "celebrities" as I can without cluttering up the design...most of the characters will go in the windows and porches of the original shacks taken from the painting done by Ross Ward that hangs over the Mine Shaft bar.
The wedding ceremony of my niece's son Tyler in Albuquerque Saturday...and all went well....
Back in Cerrillos I played around in the studio a bit and did a tour of the studio areas...
A fire happened across the river in the village of Cerrillos...at first I thought it was in the Bosque, and it was very close but thankfully the volunteer fire department got there and put it out before the wind carried the fire towards the tree in the Bosque...had it got there it would have been a very serious event. Now if we can get through the 4th of July pyromaniacs or if the Monsoons come that will be the next situation to anticipate.
Back from Truth or Consequences and Ruth's exploration of El Paso

Art at Ruth's gallery. And that is where I will be today, which will give me a chance to get back to THE CRYSTAL TIGHTROPE which I haven't worked on for some time... http://www.kewolve.com/Crystal_Tight_Rope.html
Spent the afternoon getting the camper ready for a small excursion and piddling around with water business for Ruth's building in Madrid...it is amazing how quickly the day goes by and how little I get done...
...and here I am working at night to make up for doing nothing during daylight...
A local artist is putting together a small magazine/art book and so I have been getting images ready for the publication, of which some work is very recent and a couple that go back years...
Slowly the studio is remodeled...and in between art stuff on old windows...
This was Ruth's idea about doing symbolic "spiritual" imagery.
New stuff out in the studio...
...and in between pretending being an artist I sit in the studio and have deep thoughtful conversations with my girlfriend Scarlet...
My pals and great musicians THE RUE BARBS celebrated Jim and Tim's birthday yesterday.
Tried to post a MPG file but did not work.
Ruth seems to be feeling better but she still has a specialist next week. So we will see...
I have to remind myself not to take my guitar out in public anymore, or as I did last night going to the Mine Shaft Tavern...several reasons, but the most real is i just make noise and yowl like an old cat so I am amazed anyone would want hear such cacophony.
On the other hand there were some people who know how to play and were worth listening to, such as Steve seen here...
I can't say how absolutely lazy I have become in the last few months...meaning I have to force myself to get up and go out to the studio...
