Dog at the Door 2019. Although "Dog at the Door" is not really a saying(it's"keep the wolf from the door"), it was my way of talking about danger coming, trying to stay safe from problems, worries and difficulties. I did a series of three paintings, all some kind of canine at the door and all about that danger. In March of 2020 I did another blog about it , Coyote at the Door(Five Trees). It was interesting rereading the blog and seeing how these paintings still pertained in the little over a year since I wrote it, but also how they didn't. In the year since, things got worse: George Floyd and Black Lives Matter unfolded, more friends presented with serious health issues, covid raged out of control, the political situation got more and more dire, the capitol was stormed after Biden was elected president and an unremitting drought that continues here in the west, to name just a few things. But things have also gotten better: vaccines have been developed to protect us from covid, for the first time in years I didn't get a cold or flu because of wearing a mask, the economy started to turn around, we have a sane president, and best of all, my husband and I, in October, were presented with a beautiful grandson, full of life and promise and hope. Time to open the door and chase that dog away.#Contemporaryart #collagepaint #contemparypaintings #mixedmediaart #art #collageart #paintcollage #artecontemporania #artcurator #portrait #mixedmediacollage #mixmediapainting #mixedmediaphotography #fineart #photographypainting #arttransfer #surrealart #collage #portriats #contemporarycollageart #expressiveart #hollyroberts #psychologicalart #folkart #artbrut #neoexpressionist #neoexpressionism

I've written in my blog about the events surrounding the discovery of Stormy, the wonderful five year old horse that appeared in my life last February. Now, a year since this magical being came into my life, my involvement has only gotten deeper and better. He is a very big guy, and still kind of a baby, the equivalent of a 15 year old person. In order for us to work together, just as I am becoming part horse, he is becoming part human. I have a sense of wonderment of being part of this animal, of learning to understand his body movements and for him to learn read mine: what his ears are telling me, how subtly can I move my body and still have him respond, what is he trying to tell me when he bobs his head down and won't let me put the bridle on? Is something wrong, or is he just being a teenager? When I think of all that has gone wrong in this past 12 months(and who knew it would get SO bad)I have Stormy to think of, and it makes it better, a little glow in the darkness.#Contemporaryart #collagepaint #contemparypaintings #mixedmediaart #art #collageart #paintcollage #artecontemporania #artcurator #portrait #mixedmediacollage #mixmediapainting #mixedmediaphotography #fineart #photographypainting #arttransfer #surrealart #collage #portriats #contemporarycollageart #expressiveart #hollyroberts #psychologicalart #folkart #artbrut #neoexpressionist #neoexpressionism

As a four-year-old child, I did some heavy negotiating with my parents: I would give up my bottle in exchange for a pair of cowboy boots. Of course, I needed the boots to ride horses, real horses, not a rocking horse or a stick with a horse head on the end, but a real horse. Since that time, horses have been an important part of my life, and, consequentially, have been an essential part of the images I make. When my daughters were small, I gave up horseback riding on a regular basis, and no longer owned a horse, but kept my connection with them through my art. Then, at the beginning of the pandemic, I was given an incredible gift: a young horse named "Stormy", whose life I got to share—to train, to ride, and to simply just enjoy. #Contemporaryart #collagepaint #contemparypaintings #mixedmediaart #art #collageart #paintcollage #artecontemporania #artcurator #portrait #mixedmediacollage #mixmediapainting #mixedmediaphotography #fineart #photographypainting #arttransfer #surrealart #collage #portriats #contemporarycollageart #expressiveart #hollyroberts #psychologicalart #folkart #artbrut #neoexpressionist #neoexpressionism

Coyote Watching: If I had to use just one term to define the coyotes that live around us in our semi-rural environment here in New Mexico it would be "wary". Like the murders of crows that startle and take off en-mass when I lift my camera to take a photograph, the coyotes are completely aware when I share their space. It might be a casual glance to let me know they know I'm watching, or more likely, taking off at a dead run when they see that my attention is too acute. They are so very different from dogs--their close cousins--with their noisy, unaware, and blundering ways. I so love this about them--that intelligence and awareness that lets them exist in both worlds simultaneously--that which is natural and that which isn't. #Contemporaryart #collagepaint #contemparypaintings #mixedmediaart #art #collageart #paintcollage #artecontemporania #artcurator #portrait #mixedmediacollage #mixmediapainting #mixedmediaphotography #fineart #photographypainting #arttransfer #surrealart #collage #portriats #contemporarycollageart #expressiveart #hollyroberts #psychologicalart #folkart #artbrut #neoexpressionist #neoexpressionism
