Truth or Consequences life

I've been getting up-close and overly personal with the plant life here. Here are some encounters that didn't end in a salad:





Mid-day strolling is best kept to a minimum. I suggest DUCKing into shops along the way.


Here are two RVing women you know. Sue and Geri, left to right.



Sue is spending the summer in Truth or Consequences, which only sounds crazy until you know that she has been creating art as though a wild woman, and has almost more shows booked - locally and remotely - than she can manage. Almost.

Geri and Chuck have home-based in T or C for a long time, and are now getting ready to head to Florida to be near family who could use their support. They have a mess (slew) of plans for new adventures.

Most bloggers are usually behind the camera, not in the shot. Sue fixed that for me. 

I am upstaged by a  bird of paradise. And a plant.


I'm starting to remember what's on Broadway, and what's on Main. 

Information center at Hot Springs Frame and Art Supplies
Sue introduces me around whenever she gets a chance. My social calendar is packed full with pity engagements. I'm not proud.


Boris Deutsch - The Indian Bear Dance
WPA art at the downtown post office - The Indian Bear Dance, by Boris Deutsch
Here's an interesting essay about Depression-era art and this Boris Deutsch mural.

I haven't traveled since I got here, but I'm catching up on sitting around. There's plenty for me to do.

Love, love the photos, most especially the plaid shirt one.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

You're making me homesick for TorC. Great pictures! If you get bored those Heavenly Blue morning glories are hallucinogenic!

Nancy said...

Your photos are art. You should really create a book of them. Then sell it on Amazon!!

Suzanne said...

Wow, those "back-lit" sunflowers are spectacular! (When I first typed that, I made a typo, "funflowers." But I think it fits.) Glad to see you flourishing among them!

Jan Goldfield said...

Love your photography. Each could be the front of a notecard, part of a set, sold on Etsy. You have much talent.

Sue Soaring Sun said...

Great photos, Roxanne! Let's talk about making some of them into postcards for the Postcard Art Show in December here in TorC. Your work would definitely sell! Here, there and everywhere.

Not pity engagements! Not! Everybody loves you!

Good Luck Duck said...

Sue, that would be very exciting for me. Okay, let's talk.

Thanks, Jan! That would also be exciting!

Funflowers is better. Those guys don't follow the Sun - it's a floral myth.*

*Personal observation

Thank you, Nancy! That would be cool. Maybe if I can figure out how such a thing is done I'll give it a try.

Really, Cyndi! Well, that casts a quiet afternoon in a whole new, Heavenly Blue light.

Aw, thanks Contessa!

Brenda A. said...

Speaking of funflowers....just look at you in that colorful shirt! :)

Good Luck Duck said...

LOL Brenda!

Geri Moore-Hajek said...

I have a box of post card blanks and note cards too... you know I do! Also have some clear packaging for them so they won't get 'fingerprinted" before they sell!

Good Luck Duck said...

I know you do, Geri! Maybe you'll tell me some stuff today?

Annie said...

I third or fourth the suggestion to sell your photography, in print and online. I just Googled selling photos online and there are bunches of resources.

Karyn Lee said...

I love sunflowers, so pretty.

Good Luck Duck said...

Thanks, Annie. It would be good for me to befriend Google, is what you're saying? :o)

Me, too Karyn. They're cheerful guys.

Linda said...

I have a question for your locals. I think there's a historical marker near the Elephant Dam. Is it really there? I couldn't find it when I swung through briefly, years ago.

Good Luck Duck said...

Locals, you're on! I remember a large pull-out and an informational sign, but can't recall a historic marker. What say ye?

Geri Moore-Hajek said...

Nice to know that the ladies of T or C aren't like the Diva's from Las Cruces! LOL!

Sherry said...

These photos are fabulous. Did you use color enhancement? If so, what program? I need to get some. Are you really going to try to do all the things on that Information board? Or just meet all the people in T&C??

Good Luck Duck said...

Geri, so far I see little resemblance.

Sherry, it would be easier to meet all the people than do all those things. I use Picasa to edit my photos; it's free, it's good, and you can download the program onto your computer to work with photos offline.

Gaelyn said...

Sometimes travel includes stopping to smell the flowers on the way, please don't over water them. Nice to see Geri.

Good Luck Duck said...

It's true, Gaelyn. Sometimes, you even need to stop and eat them. Sorry I missed you when you were in Flag.

JO said...

Good idea to make cards and post cards. I had sold lots of my pictures a few years back. I would just use a matt for them and bingo they sold. Good Luck with that. Your pictures are fantastic.

Roxanne said...

So, Jo, you used an actual photograph and made it into a card? Or did you sell the photograph ready to frame? Thanks!

Pam said...

WPA art...you are definitely a girl after my heart!

Good Luck Duck said...

Yay!

Pat said...

i didn't know you could get felines from Amazon until i found their 'cat-alog'

Good Luck Duck said...

HAHAHAHA!
