    This is so beautiful…the first time I saw a mesa I was flying over TX to get to New Mexico and I could not believe my eyes how the mesas looked from the air. They are amazing and so is this pick!

    I have photographs I took of a series of rain showers while we were driving across northern NM. The colors are very dramatic. This was before my son was born and we were returning from a trip to Missouri. My husband and I grew up about 70 miles apart so we got to see both of our families when we went back.

    This looks beautiful! Do you have pics to share? Please! :)

    Little Round Chick says:

    I have the pictures but they are slides. If I can figure out how to copy from a slide I’ll share. These pictures are OLD! I think I took them about 1972.

    I was checking thru my photos on the computer and came up with a version of a Storm Over the Mesa….but it is a pastel painting I did some years ago. I’ll share it and if I can figure out the slide thing I’ll share the photos.

    Chickies, You are all the best! Thanks for the compliments on the pick and the picture. I love working with pastels even though I don’t do it often. I have an extensive background in design and composition plus I graduating from college with a bachelors degree in art education. I started my professional life as a high school art instructor and taught art in public school for 5 years before I got married and moved to Sunny California.

    Congratulations on your POD!!! I love this, both the painting and the Pick!!! :-)
    Btw. We have mesas in West Texas too! There are some really neat ones near Fort Stockton, and also around Crane and Rankin, and McCamey and….. LOL
    Did you notice that the cactus really DO grow right up the sides of many of the mesas? I think it is to keep silly climbers from getting right out there with the rattlesnakes. :D

    Congrats on this lovely Pick being chosen as POD, glad to hear about the mesas in California, and thanks much for sharing your painting, you are indeed multi talented – painting, jewelry and storytelling!!!

    Faith, that is a great question, I know that CAS was keeping the “chickie” list of names, you might send her a message and check with her.

    I like Fluffy Chick for a name, but have no idea if anyone has it. Anita does the christening…Anita?

  32. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    Thanks again for the compliments, Chickies. You are all a great bunch to hang out with. Smart Chick, the mesas I photographed and painted are in New Mexico and Arizona. There are probably mesas in many states but the ones in NM and AZ are the ones I’m most familiar with.

    Little Round Chick says:

    BTW, I live in La Mesa. The literal translation is ” the table.” We are right next door to El Cajon…”the box.” So I live on the table and shop in the box. :)

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I like the name Fluffy Chick Faith too. There’s my vote, as long as it’s not already taken. ;)
