Trucks Along Hwy 99
I drive by these old Ford Trucks almost every day on Hwy 99 near Talent. They are so cool to look at & I kept meaning to stop & photograph them, so finally I did. It was the perfect time of day~ late afternoon, when the lower light made it possible to pick up the detail & textures in layers of chipped paint & rust.
While I started this blog in 2009 to post assignments for an entry level digital media class, I found it to be quite a fun way to express my thoughts & post my photography and progression of clay work, so I decided to keep it going. While taking a year & a half of art classes @ SOU in Southern Oregon, I still traveled to New Mexico for work during quarter breaks, & finally decided I'd give it a go here for awhile and see what happens. I've now been here 3 years, enrolled in back to back clay classes of all sorts, learning as much as I can about the wild world of ceramics! I not-so-secretly dream of having my own studio & all the free time in the world to create to my hearts content. I'm a mountain girl at heart & love nature, & places that are wild. I've loved photography since as long as I can remember, and have a penchant for documentation through photo narratives... be it artistic process, hiking, travel, life. My big dreams are larger than my current reality, and it seems I am continually seeking a balance between following my artistic dreams, and making ends meet.
