Most phainopeplas spend the summers feeding on insects up in the nearby mountain only to return to places like Sabino Canyon feeding mostly on desert hackberry,  wolfberry, and desert mistletoe berries.

I don’t remember much about this photo
other than I liked it a decade ago and 
that it a very low-resolution image —
it was blurry. 

I was recently looking back at old photos
found this one and decided to create
more artistic image and why not,
the subject is beautiful.

Water Above Sabino Dam   2 comments

Above The Dam-Edit-1-art-blog-2Water Above Sabino Dam — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Yesterday was cloudy to high-clouds day in Sabino Canyon. I was down around the creek and dam area taking fall and wildflower photos. One of the photos was a reflection on the water above the dam. Once the image was on my computer, I flipped it and began to use layers and brushes to create this surreal painting. 

A watchful eye
may have you feel
disoriented,
hallucinatory, or
in a dream —
yes, it’s a
irrational reality.

In a tangle of cliffs I chose a place — 
Bird paths, but no trails for men.
What’s beyond the yard?
White clouds clinging to vague rocks.
Now I’ve lived here—how many years —
Again and again, spring and winter pass.
Go tell families with silverware and cars
“What the use of all the noise and money?”

— Gary Snyder

Color possesses me.
I don’t have to pursue it.
It will possess me always, I know it.
That is the meaning of this happy hour:
Color and I are one.
I am a painter.

BOOT: Anthropomorphized

There are some simple decisions to make: 
are the eyes on the outside 
or on the inside? 
How thick is the skin? 
What kind of strings are attached? 
How tight are the stitches, 
how sturdy the soul?

Such accidents will determine 
the way it walks through the world, 
the way it holds the memory of mud.

but what a poor life without it.
