Here is ‘Above’. She has a cactus brassiere (how fabulous!). I think she looks a bit like my grandmother… or Wonder Woman.

The garden theme continued from Below, but this time I was hoping for some sympathetic magic in the artwork. There are a lot of pests in my garden (deer, squirrels, slugs, a curious toddler). I wanted something to help keep them under control. I started thinking about the milagros, retablos and devotional portraits I grew up seeing in New Mexico. All these charms live in homes and gardens to bring good and ward away bad. I’m hoping that the radiant glow from her cactusy-panties will keep my pests under control.
