My home for over 20 years was a small community along the
beautiful Truckee River near Reno, Nv. We had the lush beauty of the
Truckee and the stark beauty of the high desert surrounding our property.
This is one of the streets in the subdivision where I lived.
One of the things we had in abundance was wildlife.
We had coyote, raccoon, deer and often wild Mustangs as visitors.
The Mustangs roamed the foothills right behind our house.
These Mustangs were my inspiration for this piece.
I created this by combining two digital images and layering onto a torn
piece of black cardstock. The embellishment is a combination of
an old purse clasp, charms, tangled burlap threads and just a bit of
A bit of trivia about a friend and the Mustangs.
He worked at the BLM in Reno where Mustangs and burros
were corralled and put up for adoption. What always
tickled me is that he rode his horse to work.
Thanks for visiting a bit of the past with me.
