Stop here!

Who else does that on road trips when someone else is driving 70 miles an hour with three cars behind them? I am notorious for it. I see a curious place I want to explore, but traffic or speed squelches the idea.

There is always a good thing. The unwritten deal in our house, is a plan to come back. We just need to remember the location, and give ourselves time to stop safely.

Last weekend, while returning from, The Desert Bar, we stopped.

The brilliant colors are what caught my eye the first time around. This time, I realized the building was a renovated motel.

I learned about, Bonita Powell, a local resident, who had always wanted an art studio, and fell in love with this old, rundown motel. The rest is history. Artist friends joined her, and Mas Paz came to life. It, along with it’s sister owner of Courtyard Galleries, is now an eclectic landmark on the side of the road, in Wenden.

The flowers are made from tea lights, plates and bowls. This project makes me want to rummage through some yard sales. You?

Life’s a hoot, love whoo you are. Isn’t that what art/life is all about?
